Euro looks toasty just in time for our trip to Chelan.  Stay tuned!!!

Forgot to ask earlier... you are actually going east of the Cascades?    Andrew and Justin want you to know there is literally nothing out there and I am the only person who has ever made a trip east during the warm season.

It’s looking like it’ll eventually work it’s way up here based on how it’s moving on radar. Just sitting here bored at work waiting for the show. 

Now I will watch it too and hope it makes it there.

.42” on the day. 

We actually came back home this evening... my wife finished her work early and drove while I was working.  

It sure looked lush once we got past Ellensburg.   Even Thorp to Cle Elum is very green and that is usually brown in the summer.    Snoqualmie Pass down to North Bend looks like a vibrant rain forest.   I was trying to find one single sick or dead tree and I failed.   It is insanely lush.   If we are in a drought or our trees are unhappy... there is zero visible evidence.  😀

Oh... and water was absolutely roaring out of the cliffs along I-90 west of the pass.     Those waterfalls are usually ice in the winter... but right now they look like Kauai.

When I was out there yesterday it was pouring both ways. Torrential downpours, hard to see while driving. Very grateful for the rain.

10 bucks say that thing breaks apart before it reaches SEA.

Pretty lame tstorm year here so far, although it is only June 14th.

Weird hotspot near my house; 5 on the year due to the PSCZ.

Other than that, it has been a rather dull storm year region-wide. Hopefully July can turn that fate around.

Somewhat disappointed to see the showers weakened as it continues to move N/NE. Hoping there'll still be something left by the time it reaches Seattle.

Today was never looking like a good shot anyways. Only managed to get 0.02” out of it. Looked like a good storm down in Olympia though. Tomorrow should be a higher chance for some interesting weather.

Sometimes. Fred Meyer has good plants and more reasonably priced than local nurseries.

My wife does probably half of our grocery shopping at that FM and the rest at Costco.

We do have a really good selection of plants and we do a good job at taking care of them. I’ve gotten a few things for myself there.

Just noticed that the cool/wet period last year in June was almost exactly the same period as this year.   It rained every day from 6/5-16 here last here... and this year it will be 6/5-15 with rain on every day except for one.   The obligatory 10-14 day rainy period in June... it happens almost every year.  In 2019 it was from 6/18-28.

The notable exception was 2015.

Another thought from the peanut gallery... this year has had quite a rhythm to it.  

The extended warm, sunny periods keep coming... but they have broken up by some sharp cold fronts and chilly periods so it has not been all warm by any means.   But in years like 2008 and 2011 there were no extended warm periods... so this has been much more enjoyable.

What is also interesting is that there has been almost no solid marine layer days this spring and now into summer.   The troughy periods have been decently sunny between rain events and the ridgy periods have been almost entirely sunny.   Its usually a meandering flat pattern that leads to our typical marine layer days here in the warm season and sometimes it can really lock in.   Not this year at all.    I am guessing amplification of the patterns this year has been the key.

I mentioned that warm, humid rain is more enjoyable a week ago when it came into view.   Its different for us... compared to our usual cold rain.

Did I say that?

But I think 10-14 day troughy periods are normal in June and that shows up better in my area when looking at daily stats.   It does not just rain here every day.    We probably won't have a drop of rain for the next 10 days... after getting some rain on 10 of the last 11 days after tomorrow.      The troughy periods really stand out when looking at the stats here.    And we can pretty much count on a 10-14 day rainy period in June out here.   It happens almost every year.   And it often comes consecutively and not spread out through the month.

The lack of the solid marine layer days out here is pretty noticeable this year.   The days that get close to burning off in the late afternoon only to fill in again during the evening.   It can be a frequent occurrence in May and June... and its been almost entirely absent.   Its either been solid ridging or solid troughing and not much in between.

Yeah... your area can have marine layer days under solid ridging.    That almost never happens out here.

SEA came in at -1 today... obviously a chilly day with a high temp of 65 which is -6 but the higher humidity meant the morning low was +4.

After tomorrow... SEA will have been below normal on 10 of the last 11 days.    And I think Matt posted something similar about PDX... which has had a high in the 60s on 8 of the last 9 days.
