Just a ridiculous day skiing up at Alpental today. Literally 70 degrees on the slopes.

All I can say is thank god for sunscreen . . .

My son was skiing at Central this morning and then took the boat out on Lake Sammamish this afternoon with his friends.   He said the problem with skiing in shorts is that it hurts like a b*tch if you fall.   😄

He also went swimming this afternoon on the boat... dove head first into the water multiple times and said it was fine and felt good with air being so warm.    But he did wear pants and a shirt while skiing so he is not quite as brave as you!

For everywhere wondering/speculating about where I have been, I am very flattered We have been on a road trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone this week. Took a nice week off before starting a new

Getting married tomorrow so that’s why I’ve not been around a ton of late. Looks like we are about 68F out there and are ready for some much-needed rainfall overnight.

Well I haven't been around in a while. Been a little, erm, preoccupied. Hope everyone's enjoying the sunshine and warmth lately! I'll be in Arizona for the weekend, and hopeful I don't melt!

Brush fire in Auburn this evening but firefighters and a copter was able to put out the flames. Obvious reminder that fire season is just around the corner.

We had some sort of brush fire up Mt. Baker Hwy earlier this afternoon, then about an hour ago we had a Huey fly by that looked like it was part of the fire crew.  Can't tell if it was for the Mt Baker Hwy fire or something else.

I definitely skied more cautiously than normal but didn't fall at all today. The snow was soft enough I don't think it would have hurt much though. It was like skiing through mashed potatoes.

Don’t think there’s a “limit” to the fire watches they can put out...nor is it unnecessary right now. It’s been pretty dry over the whole region this spring even more so down there. 

I'm in the Willamette Valley too and know more then anybody how dry it is but still wondered if it was too early as I don't recall April ever having fire warnings. It seems more of a mid May thing at best.

Hopefully the pattern next month will put a damper on the fire season.

Not more then the fire marshals whom are closer to the situation. I was just teasing. Nobody can take a joke it seems unless it bashes someone politically or for political beliefs. Seriously this has got to be the earliest fire warning we have had in the year ever.

Do you think it's worse then what we went thru in 2014 or whatever year we had that super hot summer?

Just spent the last three days in Olympic National Park and I can't imagine having nicer weather. Out at the coast it was dry with no dew in the mornings, the lightest cooling wind, and a temperature range of low 70s for highs and low 50s for lows. The stars were incredible, especially after the moon set. The rain forest wasn't very rainy, with full on blue sky and temperatures above 80F. And then up at 6,000 feet it was in the mid 60s today. Everywhere it felt like summer and people were definitely out enjoying it.

Here, today (or I guess yesterday) was the warmest day with a high of 75F while Saturday just brushed 70F.

So far on my research for Aprils with the greatest range between average high and average low the top three I've found for Landsburg are:

1951 - 33 degrees

1956 - 28

1931 - 27

A monthly difference of 33 degrees between average high and average low in this region is seemingly impossible, but it happened.  So far the range for this month IMBY is 26 degrees.

It's kind of interesting how the trough coming off the Pacific has trended toward merging with that crazy (for this time of year) PV.

Going on a 8-month long stretch of dry months doesn't sound too good in southern Oregon, but I am curious if delayed growth might slightly ease some of the fire season or make it worse? We do have lots of brush still at the very least.

The last time I recall a significant rainfall (heavy) was the severe thunderstorm on August 5th and that is a bit ridiculous.

I would think most of the fires could be more localized and not go out of control like they did last year.

Just a theory though.

That PV keeps getting closer on every run.  We actually get brushed by a lobe of it about a week out on the 6z GFS.

What is with the ECMWF being too low on max temps and the GFS being too high on mins?  Looking at McChord the 6z GFS was 6 degrees too high on their min for this morning while the ECMWF was dead on.  An interesting side note is the ECMWF numbers for McChord end up being almost prophetic for MBY on clear nights unless there is an east wind here.

Not sure since it’s the new GFS. But the old GFS was very warm with lows here too. A few times last July it was projecting *low* temps at 90°F+. 😂

Euro gets fairly wet in the second half of the run...we would get enough rain to avoid a record dry April if it verifies.

So far the "warmest" min here this month has been 42.  It dropped to 41 here this morning.  Tonight might be cooler with continued clear skies and coming off a cooler max today.

This weekend is looking potentially quite cool with the GFS and ECMWF both going for possible sub 50 highs on Saturday.  Cold looking setup at the 500mb level.  Some locations still have a really good shot at a below normal monthly average.  The average IMBY through yesterday was a cool 47.9

That's a big if.  A lot of blockiness still showing up, and being more emphasized for the 5 to 10 day period albeit in a cooler position for us.

Luckily it didn’t verify. Off by 10 degrees or so. Which was still hell but not as bad.

I think the old GFS struggled with boundary layer decoupling? Haven’t seen enough of the new GFS to know yet.

Average here is 50.7. Will take some decent negative departures here to even get back to normal especially after these next couple warm but not as warm days coming up.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up fairly wet late this month and then some next month too. Just a guess though.

OLM managed a low of 34 last night.  They are on a crazy roll for low temps.  As of yesterday they had an insane 32 degree spread between average high and average low this month.  Those are Nevada type numbers.
