Marine layer still sticking around at noon. And a cool 69 degrees…. Feels wonderful! 

Full sun here now and still only 72... feels like a normal summer day finally.

Believe it or not there have been several recent July's at SLE that were only 0.5-0.9F above normal: 2020, 19, 16. August has consistently been the scorcher. 

July 2013 was top 5 warm July at the time (Not anymore because 2014, 15, 17, 18) were all warmer. I remember there was a massive N/S temp gradient that summer, IIRC.). 

2012 was below average at SLE. 

Gotcha. So if this July finishes below +1, you'd consider that average? Seems fair considering the increased UHI there.

12Z ECMWF loop... just not enough push to dig that trough into the PNW.   The EPS has been consistent in showing the same thing.    I am guessing the GFS is up to its usual tricks since the upgrade of over-amplifying patterns.

67 here at noon and still clouded up. Starting to erode though should be sunny by 1 or 2 this afternoon. Probably won’t hit 80 today or tomorrow though which is nice. 

Monthly rainfall-2.23”

Cold season rainfall-

Sub 40 highs-0

Sub 32 highs-0

Sub 32 lows-0

Snowfall-0.0”

Coldest High-63

Coldest Low-42

The CMC followed the GFS today. And many of the 00z EPS members looked like the 12z GFS.

Will have to see what the EPS does but analog composites align better with the CMC/GFS this time. :o Ordinarily wouldn’t even consider the GFS/GEFS.

That would be nice but would like to see the euro jump on it before getting excited. I agree with Andrew that this month will probably be warmer than normal…but not a +4 month like this June. I’m guessing +1 or +2.

Good guess... the 12Z ECMWF seems to be sticking with the idea that trough will not dig nearly as much as the GFS shows.   This is consistent with its previous runs and the EPS.

I've been watching the development of the 4 ch on the models, it looks like it may be a force to be reckoned with.

My personal range of normal is up to +0.5 or -0.5. All of summer 2019 was within 1/2 degree of exactly normal at KLMT and I'd kill for another like that. Just add a few more t'storm days to the formula and perfect.

It is indeed. But that *by itself* doesn’t teleconnect to a warm PNW. Has to be bumped into the correct position, to put it simply.

Only 85 at noon. We'd be a couple from kissing 100 in the brunt of that heatwave at this time.

GFS and GEM both show below normal temps by day 9. Euro shows temps near normal by late in the run. GEFS shows below normal temps days 7-9.

Overall, a cooler look to the coming pattern than the models were showing a few days ago.

I think central Idaho's summer will be warmer than normal though, because of it...

12Z EPS looks just like the ECMWF through day 10.    And it's been very consistent.

Felts Field is a municipal airport. The records are legitimate. GEG is 2400 feet. Felts Field is about 2000 feet. Nobody lives at GEG. People live around Felts Field.

Yeah the distance from GEG to the city is similar to KLMT to my house. I have to drive 10 miles south and middle of nowhere. They're also a dry part of Klamath, I think they get overall less snow, and convective precip is half (sometimes even less) than that in downtown. A storm I had on Aug 5th dumped 1.5" rain at OIT, airport picks up 1/4" out of that evening.

Well well well..EPS made a move. Not evident in the mean, but definitely fewer horseshoe 4CH/-NPO solutions this run.

Plenty of warm members still, but just 1 more move is all we need.🤞

Felts Field is definitely legitimate and is recognized by the NWS. 
 

https://w1.weather.gov/obhistory/KSFF.html

How far does it go back may have to do a little more research as the city of Spokane Valley was incorporated back in 2003 but the airport has been around for a lot longer.

Yep. Two steps forward, one step back, but slowly making progress towards a -PNA/+NPO pattern across guidance.

This all sounds so familiar.    You might be too deep in the weeds here... and that has not been working out too well for you this summer.    The mean is even showing another warm spike after day 10.

Guys look! The map is orange over the PNW! It’s gonna be hot!

Not really hot... but the EPS is consistently warm as previous runs have been showing.

The strong inversion is working its magic today... there might not be much clearing in some areas.     Strong inversions are probably the most problematic thing for the mesoscale models to properly handle.

Jim's area is solidly in the low clouds still while there is full sun here.

I see a few patches of blue now. These things usually burn off very quickly. I would be surprised if we do not have full sunshine by 2:30-3p.

After earlier this week I don't want to underestimate our ability to rapidly heat, but we're sitting 72 and cloudy west of Portland, while the NWS continues to show a high of 90.

I guess it's possible considering the upper level airmass, but I can recall of few if any instances where we had a marine layer until 2-3pm and still hit 90.

This all sounds so familiar.    You might be too deep in the weeds here... and that has not been working out too well for you this summer.    The mean is even showing another warm spike after day 10.

Pretty interesting how you can see the pulsing cool anomalies from afternoon thunderstorms in the SW every afternoon.

To answer Front Ranger's question. I do consider anomalies between -1.0 to +1.0 to be essentially normal.

Interestingly... the 12Z GEFS also shows the same cool down and warm up as the EPS.   

They are in very good agreement.

So, it looks like Pelton Dam hit 119° yesterday. This would tie the official state record for Oregon set in Pendleton and Prineville in 1898 (dubious as those readings are). Of course the Pelton Dam reading would need to be verified to be made official.

Seems like good spot for our state record. My friend lives in Crooked River Ranch and his personal weather station got up to 118 yesterday. 

He has a monthly high/low of 118/28.

Felts Field is definitely legitimate and is recognized by the NWS.

How far does it go back may have to do a little more research as the city of Spokane Valley was incorporated back in 2003 but the airport has been around for a lot longer. 

I'm not sure. Spokane set its all time record. I'm guessing Spokane Valley may have done the same.

Its not retreating or breaking up any more per the satellite... and looks like its going to fill in quickly once the sun starts going down.   This is the first day I can remember like this since April.   Even though its a pretty normal marine layer day set up.  All it took was really warm 850mb temps to create a strong inversion.   👍

A perfect set up for Jim... he is right on the line but on the cloudy side.  😀

There continue to be some breaks in the clouds, but it is not rapidly clearing as I would have suspected. Definitely the most solid marine layer we have had this year. This used to be pretty common, but since 2012 it has been exceptionally uncommon.
