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

Eh, the last 2 have sucked so this one probly will too. Haven't had a sub-freezing high in over 4 years (longest on record).

Yeah... really unfortunate timing for this front to shear apart overhead.   Good news is that we are over half way through this band of mid level clouds.   Should be getting brighter in a hour or so.

Getting brighter as we speak!

Today should end up a little warmer than yesterday despite models showing it slightly cooler. High temps have been overachieving almost every day lately.

And yet some very cold air masses into the West on a regular basis... which also happened in 2008.     Kayla said Bozeman was crushing records just last week.   Denver has had an incredible amount of spring snow.   There was even two snow events here in April which is rare... but also happened in 2008.  

Cherry picking. Objectively it has not been a cold spring for the West Coast. 2008 had a very chilly March 15-June 15 with consistent long wave troughing down the coast.

You can cherry pick troughing or snow events out of any spring, especially ones that happened 1000 miles away, but that doesn't really illuminate a whole lot in terms of large scale similarities.

Looks like Spokane will see their driest spring on record at the airport there, with just 0.67" since March 1.

2nd driest for the city overall in 140 years of record after 1924 which had 0.54" in downtown.

Of course they are also well to the north of Oregon....

I said this spring has been much nicer than 2008 overall.   But there has been a theme of occasional very cold air masses coming through which was a theme in 2008 as well... and which is why Jim is so jacked up about everything lately.

Most springs have significant troughing events in the western half of the country at some point or another over the course of 3 months. This spring has not really stood out in that regard whatsoever. 

2008 had historically chilly temperature anomalies over a wide area down the West Coast during that 90 day period from mid March to mid June. Pretty easily quantifiable difference.

And Jim gets jacked up when he sees the temp go down each night after sunset.....

My impression of this spring is that it was very sunny and pleasant overall... way different than years like 2008 and 2011.    But there was some very notable (and in some cases record breaking) cold troughs as well.   So there was a small element that was like 2008 and 2011.

Hyperventilate all day about some high clouds and then spend the sunny afternoon trolling a weather forum. Weird.

Yeah... we had to finish some yard projects so the high clouds did not matter much to me.   There was plenty of sun here today.   But I know some people were tracking and having fun with it.  😁

And I am not trolling when I talk about these sharp cold troughs.   I did not say this spring was like 2008.   I said there was one was aspect that was similar.    Jim just came on earlier to once again tell us about another crazy cold trough coming up.   Matt did as well.  And one just happened last week so it will probably happen again.    That trough was pretty impressive... smashing records just to our east.   So yeah.    

You are just salty as f*ck because it ended up being a very dry spring.   So you want to lump it in with all the warm springs lately.    But it was not real warm.   In fact... I think spring will end up a little colder than normal overall up here.

I do think the troughs out there have had a more meridional flavor to them vs recent years. More GOA high overall.

But I suppose conditions on the surface are what matter.

It seems like the majority of this group believes that the PNW only encompasses a an area from Tacoma to Bellingham and from the coast to the cascade crest. 
 

Objectively, it has been a warm and historically dry spring for a large portion of the PNW. 
 

That trend will continue at least through the middle of June. A day or two of troughing here and there doesn’t change that fact.
