So stupid.    Can't you just let people like what they like without this dripping hyperbole?    Haven't we have been having this discussion for 15+ years.   Do you see me telling people they shouldn't like rain or cold?   Like I am going to change their mind... or that their preferences have an impact on me or the actual weather.   

There are lots of people up here and in Oregon who love sunshine.  And lots of people who love rain in both places.   Who cares? 

Side note... my area will be just as warm as other places around here during this warm spell.   We have lots of nice weather here too.

Can you think of anything better to do during the summer doldrums? Traditions have purpose. :D

1.05" of rainfall/hail yesterday afternoon/evening with the strong storms that moved through here before changing to heavy snowfall around midnight. Measured 7" this morning! Pretty incredible for May

3" of snow in 2 hours tonight and still dumping. A very good overperformer 

Clip of the storm from beginning to end.....very 😎 cool!  https://video.nest.com/clip/1fd9d2f06b77452cbc676458b5263e1e.mp4

42 with heavy rain here.   Looks like it's warm and sunny all around my area though.   😎

D**n you have me beat by 10 degrees.

Other than that, we have the same weather today. 🥰

Whoops... just popped up to 64 now without a cloud in the sky.    Heading for the low 70s.  😀

12Z ECMWF digs the back side of the trough into the PNW next weekend... but that is a fairly dry trajectory.   It's not even that cloudy next weekend on this run... partly sunny and mid 60s.

Not sure why... but the GFS ensemble output is one of the most accurate for the Seattle area.     

The 12 ECMWF showed at a high of 65 at SEA today... it was 66 already at 1 p.m.    Its just so bad.    The 12Z EPS showed 67 today which is a little better.    But the GFS ensemble shows 71 which is probably within a degree or two of the actual high.   

Here is the 12Z GEFS output for Seattle over the next 2 weeks... looks almost perfect except for those mid-60s right over next weekend.    😃

The EPS is demonstrably better in the LR than the GEFS pretty much everywhere. The latter seldom gets the pattern correct, so by default its thermals will be off. Not even accounting for the lower resolution and fewer number of ensemble members in the GEFS.

Fair enough... but the EPS is pretty nice as well.   And there is no doubt you have to add 3-4 degrees to all of these high temps due to its cool bias.

It shows 67 for a high today at SEA and its now 69 at 2 p.m.    Its going to be at least 4 or 5 degrees too cold on day 1.    It knows the exact pattern for today and is still going to be way too cold.   😃

So when you adjust for its cool bias... it basically shows the same thing as the GEFS.

GFS total cloud fraction was wrong for today. Hoping the same can be said for tomorrow too.

Often both the GFS and ECMWF make even thin wispy high clouds look the same as a solid low cloud deck.    That being said... the ECMWF does show a mid level deck passing through right during the afternoon and peak heating time tomorrow.    That might make it feel pretty cloudy for 2 or 3 hours.

We’ll find out soon enough, I guess.

You  were the one who specifically mentioned 70s for highs there. Pretty clear many places will get much warmer than that on Tuesday. Don't shift the goalposts.

I said low 80s on Tuesday.   And whatever.   Its an endlessly stupid debate.   People like what they like.   We get plenty of beautiful weather in this area.   Enough to make us love it here.   And we still love the sunny days the most.    It's paradise here on a sunny summer day.   😎

71 at SEA... and 73 here.    

6 degrees warmer than the ECMWF showed and 4 degrees warmer than the EPS.     Actual high may end up warmer than the 71 that the GEFS showed.

Every post I have made today has been outside on my phone during breaks in yardwork.    Get the work out of the way so we can play the rest of the weekend.

Had to pick up my son in Tacoma... car temp (which is really accurate) went from 75 in North Bend to 77 in Covington and Maple Valley and then back down to 73 when I got to I-5.

Beautiful day at the Tamanawas Falls trail and through the Hood River Valley today. Extremely blue skies thanks to low RH and rural area / clean air.

Last photo is a Manzanita shrub. Looks like either greenleaf or pinemat manzanita. It grows at elevation throughout the Cascades, Sierra, and many areas in the SW US and is very drought-resistant.

No. These silly little preference debates which I alone instigate more than anyone here by an order of magnitude as part of an ongoing effort to essentially turn this forum into my own private Twitter feed are sooo dumb 😤

OT, but…50.8°F and dropping at 1130AM in *late May*. Thick mist and low cloud deck licking the treetops. HEAVEN. :wub:

Outside enjoying every second of it. How anyone could prefer death ridging to this is beyond me. There’s a reason they don’t call it “life ridging”.

Who calls it 'death ridging'?  That's just a little cynical, isn't it?

Who?   Justin?   Yeah.   That was some silly hyperbole.  

I just stated facts... people like what they like.   And debating it is pointless.  Justin made some silly comments about drizzle on Tuesday in my rainforest.  😀

A couple pics from my hike today up to Boulder lake near McCall, Idaho.  The second picture is the outflow from the lake.  Still a good amount of snow at 6,900 feet.

We've drove through McCall a couple years ago. Beautiful area. Visited a hot springs not too far from there that was amazing. I think it was called Gold Fork, if I remember right. Worth a visit.

If I said today is Saturday you would say I am wrong.   It's a given.   This is little game you play is just as stupid as preference discussions for 15 years.
