That trend started yesterday on the 18z GFS. When it’s all said and done, PDX will probably end up with about .25” of rain in the first half of June. That’s after a very dry end of February, a near-record dry March, a record dry April, and one of the driest Mays. We still haven’t had more than .25” of rain in a day since Valentine’s Day. It’s worse than a worst-case scenario.

I’m thinking PDX will end up with atleast 0.50” by mid June. Still much better than nothing. I’m pretty sure all of us didn’t really think those hefty rain totals late in the euro run would verify. There’s still rain coming down there and that’s something to be happy about.

Approaching 24 hours in which it’s been raining for over 90% of the time here. Just glorious and way overdue. Moderate rain currently.

Here are those pictures, I think my favorite is the one where the sunset almost seems to be illuminating the clouds from underneath  

Russell Wilson showed up at my son's flag football game today. Apparently his son plays on one of the other teams in the league. My son lost his game but said it didn't matter since he got to meet Rus

Actually it looks like there has been a couple lightning strikes offshore now. Hopefully this afternoon ends up being active. Should get some decent rain atleast.

63F and mostly sunny. No precip and nothing about the day is unusual so far. About to take a quick swim in the outdoor pool that's still warm from the hot weather previously.

It’s warmed up to 53 and we even had the smallest bit of blue skies a bit ago. 0.06” so far this morning but the heavier rain is just to the west now. Some of those echoes look strong offshore...no lightning detected yet. 

Warmed up to 53.  😀

Normal high in the Seattle area is about 70 now.   

Crazy cold day... and a fairly chilly week ahead.

Still a lot of time for things to trend away from the wetter solutions. As we have seen countless times in the last 4-5 months.

Also interesting as all of my experiences on Alaska have been the worst flights with one exception...Spirit Airlines, where you have to pay like $10 to buckle your seatbelt.

Haha I know. I am a pro at flying Frontier and Spirit and sneaking carry on onto the plane. Every now and then I get caught and have to pay the $60 bag fee...lol

Yesterday I got into the PSCZ a few times south of Snohomish. Driving back into Woodinville it was mainly just drizzle, sprinkles and the pavement was barely wet. Did pick up about 0.15" here in Shoreline.

Rain has arrived now. Sitting at 54 after a low of 47 this morning. Definitely sweatshirt weather today.

Pretty crazy to think this is at the same latitude as Olympia and pretty much at sea level.

If the Earth spun the other way...

 

And we live in an even more shitt location down here, where we don't ever have sub-freezing highs anymore and can't seem to have anything but a handful of minor cold anomalies in Oct or pithy ones in Nov. High temps below 40F are almost nonexistant. This won't change.

Maybe a weird-a** snowstorm like Feb 2019, which was a very borderline setup.

I predict a 3rd dud in a row.

Five days ago in Portland would have been a hotter than normal June day in Redding or Fresno.

Anomalies happen. Even after record dry springs.

Yep.   This is a very anomalous day up here.  Just a fact.  Not surprising that it might warm up again.  It sure can't stay like this for very long.

If we’d had the same number of anomalously cold days as we did anomalously warm days over the last 5 years, Tim would’ve moved to Phoenix already.

This nice little storm on my return trip home formed near Milford California.  It caused a nice surprise dust storm right in front of me on the highway.  Everything happed so fast!  My car was quickly swallowed and visibility went to zero.  Had to stop the vehicle immediately in the middle of the highway (70 mph speed limit). We were sitting ducks for about 15 seconds. Then enough visibility returned that I could get off the highway until the danger past.  It was crazy and so glad a semi didn’t come barreling through.

Yeah... if it decides to get much colder and wetter than normal permanently around here (specifically in the warm season) then we definitely will move.  That would be seriously depressing.  But never Phoenix.  That is gross.   We have already had the wetter part over the last decade but its been tolerable because the warm seasons have been generally nice.    

Not too worried about it... we are flexible but I think the climate will stay the same or continue to warm.    ;)

Lassen County can get some pretty nice storms (and winter cold) by CA standards for sure. One of the more interesting places in the state climate-wise.

It was the only interesting weather on the trip besides a shower that held together in Sedona and it rained dirt on my car.

At Salem July 1980 was pretty average, typically dry. 0.22" of precip, peaked at 101. 81/49 average which would be cold by today's standards, but was probably about average then. 

August was cool, frigid by modern standards.

Fiddy 5 here and dumping rain.  My tomatoes, grapes and cucumbers are drenched.  Poor things.

 

Looks like it could dry out a bit Monday through Thursday with periods of heat waves taking our temps up to Sixty 6.

Wow... just checked and that was a terrible winter for cold and snow.   There was one single day below freezing out here... 29 on 12/6/80.    And a couple days in the upper 30s following that short cold spell.   January was mostly in the 50s and low 60s.

Even though it's only 50-51 degrees. I still some people out in sandals and shorts!

I actually just ran to Ace in shorts and sandals (and a sweatshirt).   Not a big deal unless you are going to be outside for a long time.   At least you can make it feel like summer.    Of course I run errands in shorts and sandals on nice winter days too.  👍

Wow... just checked and that was a terrible winter for cold and snow.   There was one single day below freezing out here... 29 on 12/6/81.    And a couple days in the upper 30s following that short cold spell.   January was mostly in the 50s and low 60s.

It was a legitimate warm AND dry January, which doesn’t happen often in this climate. Usually crappy Januaries are wet and dominated by SW flow.

Looks like that early December 1980 event was actually pretty decent up here. Silver Falls had a 9" snow depth and snow on the ground Dec 3-18th. The rest of the winter was putrid.

I meant 12/6/80... corrected it.  

And yeah... there was a crazy warm stretch in the middle of January 1981 with highs either side of 60 here and no rain for 10 consecutive days.

Must have been a southern storm track.   There was no snow up here with that cold spell.
