I have to catch up with model/pattern developments. Been tracking this vortmax for 48hrs and haven’t looked past D3.

I am sure it will be just a continuation of the never-ending cold troughing and rain out here.

67/50 today. 1.55 inches of rain for the month. Highest temp in April was 83 on 4/17 and it got down to 25 on 4/11. Mean temp was 50.

Overall a very pleasant month with much more sunshine than I expected and lots of warm days/cold nights. We will probably pay for it in May with tons of rain but it was worth it.

My wife said it was 98 in Vegas today. 

Currently some moderate rain falling, I can't believe it.

If it keeps on raining, the levee’s gonna break.

Then we’ll all be climbing that stairway to heaven!

Thanks everybody!!

Had our rehearsal dinner in the far south valley at Cottage Grove in the rain and it was glorious. Felt like even a sliver of hope to soak this tinderbox.

I would've recommend Wunderground but IBM put the kaboosh on that and chased after the phone fad.  :(  It's literally a joke site now.  Sorry but the entire web wants that crowd and your (our) kind out.

I've been using the paid version of weathermodels.com, but haven't been too excited about it....plus I've been reading from multiple people that the guy who developed/owns the site is a real DB, so I doubt I will be renewing.  So, I will be in the same boat as you...trying to find a new source for models.

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.

That's so awesome man!!!!  Congrats!!!

8 days above 70 degrees here.     And today is the 9th day with measureable precip here this month.

SEA is going to end up around +2.5 for the month and BLI at +2.0... and even OLM will end up close to +1.0

 

 

+1.6 at Seattle WFO. SEA the major warm outlier, per normal for sunny months.
