Yeah... I know it's all sensationalism.    

But I was just wondering if those maps are actually accurate or being skewed by CNN to look more dramatic. 

That’s a clever color scheme they picked.

Sunrise is at 5:44 now... and I seem to wake up with daylight.   I think we might be hard-wired to get less sleep in the warm season.

That is evil.   The models are very dry for the PNW.

But the 18Z GFS is hilarious... bone dry across the whole region and a tiny sliver of wetter than normal right over King County.   😁

Pretty amazing they have Wenatchee at -.86 below normal rainfall for the next 2 weeks, considering Wenatchee averages only. 54 inches of rain for the entire month of May.  Makes me wonder where they get their numbers from.

Its the GFS... not as refined as the ECMWF.    I just thought it was funny that King County was green in a sea of brown and red.

Brushfire smoke is back. I don't think DEQ's air quality map is up to the hour, this is at least 150 or so on AQI.

This is like mid-summer smoke. Haven't even had the first storms of the year either.

Looks like Clearbrook in Whatcom County had its driest March in 118 years of records. And its 2nd driest April on record.

Drought is certainly going to extend regionwide pretty soon. All of Eastern WA is there already.

Makes me wonder what kind of a pattern would produce that.  Thinking their anomaly maps are wrong, like what Phil said.  Did it show actual precip amounts instead of anomaly maps?

Driest March/April combo ever at the Cedar Lake station near me... but its been pretty wet since 4/25.  

The other years in the top 5 for driest March/April all had a wet May (1911, 1926, 1941, 2004)

Makes me wonder what kind of a pattern would produce that.  Thinking their anomaly maps are wrong, like what Phil said.  Did it show actual precip amounts instead of anomaly maps?

I am sure it was c-zone related for King County.    Even relatively dry fronts usually kick off c-zones.

I saw a fire west of Agency Lake when I flew over Monday morning.

I know they are doing some prescribed Burns SE of Bend now, it’s pretty crazy how much smoke they are putting out right over the city.

Driest March/April combo ever at the Cedar Lake station near me... but its been pretty wet since 4/25.  

The other years in the top 5 for driest March/April all had a wet May (1911, 1926, 1941, 2004)

2004 stayed pretty dry for the most part until August.

There was a big rain event up here in late May of 2004.    I remember it well.   

The Snoqualmie Falls station ended up with 5.38 inches in May 2004... and the Cedar Lake station had 9.10 inches that month.   Both of those were well above normal for May.     And there was a similar event in August as well.     The Cedar Lake station had 9.34 inches in August which is about 400% of normal.

That was also the last time the Brood X cicadas emerged... analog?

After that very dry March/April combo in 2004... the Snoqualmie Falls station had 16.72 inches of rain for the May - September period.   I remember that summer being generally warm and sunny... but there was some big rain events in there too.

Interestingly... the current SSTA map for the ENSO regions looks very similar to the same day in 2004.

Thanks for pinning the thread; I kept almost accidentally posting on April 2021 every morning.

So apparently prescribed burning is causing this smoke. I'm not the only one noticing how bad the smoke is, and anyone with lung issues should stay indoors here.

I would like a repeat of 2004-2005. One of the most infamous winters in Tahoe history. In a 3 week period from late Dec to early Jan we had 180" of snow in South Lake Tahoe. Reno crushed a bunch of records with like 60"+ depending on the part of town.

There was one winter I remember a lot of heavy rains, maybe 04-05 or the next one? At my last apartment when I lived in Hillsboro we had to call someone over to fix a leak that trickled down the wall in my bedroom, and sometimes part of the carpet got wet from the rain.

It was a season no snow happened, so it was either that winter or 05-06, not sure. Was wet to say the least.
