A Nino might really help the situation down south... too bad that is not in the cards for the next decade at least.  👍

2022/23 could be a niño. My guess is next winter there’ll be some heavy intraseasonal activity that sloshes the IPWP and triggers ENSO shift. Single year moderate or strong event followed by another multiyear niña.

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!

Negative....just the cameras for my weather addiction.  I’ve got the normal battery first alert alarms scattered throughout the house that go off when I cook 

 

Sounds like hardwired to me if they all go off. Or wireless interconnected. There's battery ones that can interconnect like this: FIRST ALERT Smoke Detector Alarm | Battery Powered with Wireless Interconnect | 2-Pack, SA511CN2-3ST - Smoke Detectors - Amazon.com  I'm not sure how they communicate I guess internal wi fi or your own?

Had this pop up on my news feed the other day.....looks kinda ugly.

I got a letter from my insurance a few weeks ago that said that wildfire coverage is now automatically included in my homeowners policy, and  offered to send out a consultant at no charge to do an assessment of my property.

 

Ummm yeah. We are due for one and the last severe one in the 1100s Lake Tahoe went dry for long periods of time.  I expect to hear that in the next 20 years of severe problems. They'll blame it on autos but silly idiots will believe every word of it. 😕

Be careful with having them come out to your property. Everyone in the Sierra foothills is getting dropped and then 3rd party fire insurance is anywhere from $6k to $25k a year. They only come out for assessments when they cant get a good idea of your area from satellite photos.

 

Good to know!  Fortunately I am in a pretty good spot, I back up against a wooded area, but it is the drainage for the lake/water table on the mountain to my immediate east, so it stays wet year round.

The ground is wet out here and it smells quite nice compared to the last couple weeks.

Back to sleep I go, maybe this is just the start of more rain. ;)

OLM is perfectly normal for April now... and the other stations are warmer than normal.

I am not seeing much of a chance for frosty nights and radiational cooling for the rest of the month.    Plenty of cloudy and occasionally rainy nights.

Pretty ugly trends for CA... the models are trending farther north. 

The top image is one week from today per the 12Z GFS yesterday and the bottom image is the new 12Z GFS for the same time.   Of course this trend is also wetter for western WA.

That could happen during any dry period... it does not rain every day here.    It was a burn pile gone awry.   Its not like the land is parched.    It is not uncommon for fires to start in the spring in many areas of the country before the full green up is completed.   Look at that parched field begging for water.  👍

Really nice 12z GFS.  Lots of chilly troughing and then a GOA block forming at the end.  The 850mb ensemble graph is getting really chilly looking now!  Looks like a decent shot of rain also.

It would be surprising to see the July 5 rule hold true this year.  Obviously it's anything but business as usual.  It would be fun to see when the last stretch of clear days this long happened in April...if ever.  An obvious guess would be 1951 and I do have detailed records (including cloud cover) for SEA).  I'll have to check.

This is not a pattern that features clear skies and chilly nights... and 850mb temps are barely below normal for the second half of the run and the warm air is not far away.   I could see this trending even farther north on future runs.   The chance of frost is close to non-existent now.  👍

Except it doesn't happen in any dry period here. We actually don't see 12+ wildfires a week in midwinter or with (most) spring dry periods.

Phil also corrected you on this the other day when he posted the current Soil Moisture Anomalies for the region, which can be a strong short term indicator of fire danger. They are in fact very low regionwide right now, included in flooded out King County, which can (shockingly) be very conducive to wildfire danger when combined with persistent very warm surface temps as we've been seeing.

It looks like a pretty typical spring wet pattern ahead.

Yeah... there are dry periods here.   And soil moisture won't be an issue for western WA by next week.    Ebb and flow.   It was wet... it dried out... and its about to turn wet again.

So it has to be super-wet all the time?    We have dry periods.   This month might not even end up drier than normal for the Seattle area.  😀

Olympia, located in extremely drought prone south of I-90ville, has seen just 3.34" of rain in the last 50 days.

That's the 2nd driest on record for that stretch of calendar, after 1986 with its 3.19" of rain.

Interestingly 2020 is in 3rd place with 3.44".

Ridging of the anomalous nature we just saw might not return until August, but with the changing seasonal climo, I assume weaker ridges (w/ respect to normals)  will produce similar if not warmer boundary layer temperatures there in the summer months.

Dry period.   Soon to be followed by a wet period.    Our usual SW flow rain is about to return.

Very, very unlikely that the next 60 days are anywhere near as anomalously wet/cloudy as this period has been dry and sunny.

Also very unlikely that you'd be  anywhere near as dismissive of it if it were. 2010 being living proof of that.

Hope you are right about the next 60 days!  

I am not even sure that April 2021 will go down in the books as a dry month for western WA.   Its going to make a good run at normal.    ;)

Most places would need a few inches of rain to even sniff average at this point. Vaguely possible but not likely. GFS is nowhere close, Euro is better.

The nice thing about the upcoming water falling from the sky is that once it’s done we’ll be due for another 30 dry days. Can’t wait!

Sure hope so... its really nice when we get lots of rain in relatively short periods and then have nice stretches of dry weather.

Going to make a good run at normal.    It won't be even close to a record dry month based on what is coming over the next 10 days.

Cool. The length of the current dry stretch also exceeds the current month and includes a regionally dry March and later February as well for places further south. It's been significant.

12Z ECMWF shows a rainy Saturday... but there might be some decent weather on Sunday up here with the focus of the rain down south where its really needed.

Moderate rain here!

I thought the moisture was supposed to taper down at this point according to a previous AFD.

12Z ECMWF spreads the wealth much better than the 12Z run yesterday.

12Z run yesterday on top and new 12Z run on the bottom... through Tuesday morning.   The bottom map is much better.

Going to make a good run at normal.    It won't be even close to a record dry month based on what is coming over the next 10 days.   

This will still go down as a notably dry "start to spring" which is very much a category in the NWS.

If this next Sunday/Monday rain wasn't in the picture here, could be a top 5 driest April in southern Oregon.

12Z ECMWF shows a rainy Saturday... but there might be some decent weather on Sunday up here with the focus of the rain down south where its really needed.

North-central CA might be in worse shape than SoCal so this is absolutely welcome.

The bottom map is much drier for the PNW, which I'm sure you noticed. If that verifies we might get to 1/3rd of average rainfall this month.
