I wouldn’t mind that at all. Loved it out there. Late July there felt like mid/late October here...that cool, crisp air and the smell of woodsmoke. No loud insects at night or 4AM bird chorus.

Are you coming out here this summer again?   If I remember correctly... you skipped last year which was probably related to COVID.

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!

00Z GFS is pretty consistent with its other runs today... fairly progressive pattern.

I wish but money is tight this year. We’re in the early stages of planning a family trip out to Lake Chelan next year, though. In which case we’d probably be in Seattle a few days, at least.

And yeah, last summer we had planned a trip out there but cancelled it because of covid-19.

I know of a great little cabin right on the lake that is completely disconnected from the online mania! No cell service, no WiFi, no satellite, and no people around you! Just lots of fishing off the dock and seeing/listening to the wildlife...It was great!

If you go to Lake Chelan, take the boat to Stehekin and stay a couple of days.  No TV, phone, or internet.  My wife and I go every year.  You can camp, stay at the main lodge at the dock, or rent a house.  The only cars are for the few locals that live there.  We rent bikes and bike to the falls and the bakery, though there are more places beyond there.  Great scenery.

Foggy morning Lincoln City 

Past three days were absolutely beautiful though!  Sunrises with the full moon setting on the water and sunsets that painted the sky that made your jaw drop.  Each one unique.  Sadly I must head home today :(

That sounds absolutely amazing. I haven’t been to Lake Chelan since I was 8 years old, but it’s one of my distinct childhood memories from that time.

I think it’s been about 6 or 7 years since I’ve actually went myself...have probably been about 5 times in my life.  It’s definitely one of the coolest things about Washington state. Haven’t been farther north than 25 mile creek state park....about 1/3 of the way up the lake. Really need to get all the way out to far side of the lake out in Stehekin.

Figured you’d have already hit 80 there by now...we’ve already hit 80 once this year about 10 days ago.

Normally I get 50+ degree diurnal changes during Indian Summers in October. That was the first time I've ever had that in April. 

Just scrolled through some posts of mine, looks like it was 04/18 the airport recorded 76/25.

I think it’s been about 6 or 7 years since I’ve actually went myself...have probably been about 5 times in my life.  It’s definitely one of the coolest things about Washington state. Haven’t been farther north than 25 mile creek state park....about 1/3 of the way up the lake. Really need to get all the way out to far side of the lake out in Stehekin. 

You guys have me researching the area now. 😅

When I was there as a kid, I distinctly remember there was an afternoon thunderstorm (with basically no rain..which I found weird as an east coast kid) and a rush of wind that came roaring down the mountains. Calmed down around sunset, then later that night it was real windy again..had to be 50mph.

Next day onwards it was hot and stagnant. Basically the opposite of how things work here..usually it’s troughing/cool advection that triggers thunderstorms, but instead it went from cool to hot.

12Z GFS shifted the bulk of the rain over the next 10 days northward again... its been trending that way for several runs.   WA still gets decent precip of course... but Oregon gets screwed per usual.   

The pattern looks fairly progressive with alternating ridges and troughs and plenty of dry days in between the rain even for WA.

From what I've been watching with and outside the models I highly suspect we are going to be lucky to have nothing more then sprinkles between now and mid November.  'They' wont' allow rain in until our forests burn  up again then we will get copious amounts of moisture when it of course doesn't really matter which will just cause landslides.  Either way we (my family) are a lot more ready for it this year.

Right offshore of the SW coast of California is a very powerful SBX radar system (regardless if it's intentional or not) around that area is a semi permanent high pressure which when the SBX radar breaks down on occasion we get monster troughs move thru.  In Sept-Oct 2019 it had a major break down for like 2 months and went offline for massive repairs then we had colder weather systems move thru. As soon as that sucker went back online our storms 'magically' stopped.  

It generally goes down for maintenance around that time most years.

Back in the 1980s in Yuba City the powerful military radar system there plants within the immediate vicinity would refuse to grow causing residents to oppose the site causing a big stink in the newspapers back then for the area.

US Air Force Admit They Can Control the Weather | Covert Geopolitics

The US Air Force and DARPA would like us to believe that they have stopped using HAARP in Alaska for research and experiment. Even then, we all know that there are other HAARP systems out there in the form of radar communication and surveillance systems that are rigged on top of mobile platforms that are deployable in any international waters around the world.

All they need to do is twist a knob to change the frequency of the main wave to the microwave range for a modulated frequency [FM] broadcast, and increase the transmission power high enough to reach and heat up the atmosphere above the designated target.

The technology is covered under US Patent 4,686,605 on the “Method and Apparatus for Altering a Region in the Earth’s Atmosphere, Ionosphere, and/or Magnetosphere.”

US4686605

 

Here's the actual patent if you want to get into the technological gobbledygook talk. I bet only Phil would even remotely be able to understand it.

I remember one time I was probably 13 or 14 camping with my family over in entiat area when we had a huge thunderstorm move through. Had been 100-105 degrees the last couple days before that...storm rolled through with thousands of strikes on all around us and even on the ridges above us. Didn’t rain at all and I remember it being hot still even though it was like 10PM with a huge thunderstorm rolling through the area. That thunderstorm and the storm that moved through the Seattle area on September 7th 2019 we’re probably some of the best I’ve seen.

12Z GFS shifted the bulk of the rain over the next 10 days northward again... its been trending that way for several runs.   WA still gets decent precip of course... but Oregon gets screwed per usual.   

The pattern looks fairly progressive with alternating ridges and troughs and plenty of dry days in between the rain even for WA.

Now the euro will probably shift north too.

From what I've been watching with and outside the models I highly suspect we are going to be lucky to have nothing more then sprinkles between now and mid November.  'They' wont' allow rain in until our forests burn  up again then we will get copious amounts of moisture when it of course doesn't really matter which will just cause landslides.  Either way we (my family) are a lot more ready for it this year.

Of course there's still convective rainfall, probably not in Portland but elsewhere it can prove to be heavy.

US Air Force Admit They Can Control the Weather | Covert Geopolitics

The US Air Force and DARPA would like us to believe that they have stopped using HAARP in Alaska for research and experiment. Even then, we all know that there are other HAARP systems out there in the form of radar communication and surveillance systems that are rigged on top of mobile platforms that are deployable in any international waters around the world.

All they need to do is twist a knob to change the frequency of the main wave to the microwave range for a modulated frequency [FM] broadcast, and increase the transmission power high enough to reach and heat up the atmosphere above the designated target.

The technology is covered under US Patent 4,686,605 on the “Method and Apparatus for Altering a Region in the Earth’s Atmosphere, Ionosphere, and/or Magnetosphere.”

US4686605

 

Here's the actual patent if you want to get into the technological gobbledygook talk. I bet only Phil would even remotely be able to understand it.

 

The fact that they say researching and experimenting sort of implies that they don't have complete control over anything bigger than cloud seeding. Forget larger scale weather events, or entire low pressure systems.

Looks like TWL took over your account here with this post. There’s definitely reason for wildfire concerns down there this year...but it’s still only late April. Just because you guys had a terrible year last year doesn’t mean it’ll happen again this year. Just gotta wait and see how this warm season progresses. I remember me and others being really concerned after our really dry spring and early summer of 2019...but then we flipped into a wet pattern in late June and we ended up with a really quiet fire season.
