I was ok with things in the spring and even the first half of summer minus the 5 days from hell, but it's getting irritating now.

Extremes beget extremes. I love to see continental air masses dominate in summer and winter. We have blocking. Now we just need it to get into the right place.

Sometimes they're hotter than us. 

And Portland thinks Spring is bi-polar, wait until they experience days they go from 90 to hailing and tornado sirens.

Oklahoma is the land of Supercells.

So much for a cooler day, it’s sunny and extremely muggy out, disgusting! 

 

I know some other areas are cooler than us but it’s 76 here now. Besides the clouds and the breezy winds not much of a cooldown. Tomorrow will be cooler though.

Really awesome map!  That clearly shows how we were at ground zero for that massive heatwave.   

I didn't realize this... I knew it got a little warm in late June but had no idea that we were ground zero!  Seemed pretty pedestrian.   🤨

Good catch, I should have checked that year. There were also 17 straight in 2019.

#coolsummer

1998 ran it out to 23/24. It was a nice punctuation mark as we transitioned to global cooling.

PDX should see 2-3 days with lows in the 50’s coming up before things get ridiculously crooked again later next week. First 70 degree low in August???

Even with the new climo averages and unusually cooler temps than stations around it... SEA has been at or above normal on 45 out of 66 days since the start of meteorological summer.    

You also predicted that summer might end on July 5th instead of just start.    You have been sort of in your own world recently.

I think the winter has amazing potential.  We need things to be out of whack to get a great one.  With a second year Nina ridge / blocking placement has a decent chance of being favorable.  FWIW the only three cases I know where we had a hot summer in the middle of back to back to Nina winters were 1971, 1984, and 2017.  All were followed by decent winters.

Feels so good today.  Hopefully everyone got some rain.  Wish we got more.  It was dry when I woke up and it is currently a super faint misting.  Full cloud deck, low to the surface.  It is cooler now than it was last night.  62F currently.

Surprised it’s this warm. It was 65 when I got up at 5 am so we did get a jump on things.

Lets take a peak at some current temps.  It is interesting to see how apparent it is as you go south in the Puget Sound, the temps get hotter.  An oddity is the heat in Coos Bay.  I'm not sure if that station is being goofy or not.  But other temps around it are in the low 70s.

Sun is out here too in north Kirkland. Temp went right up into the 70s. 74 currently. 

Upper 60s and clouds tomorrow should be a nice break.

Looks like a batch of thicker clouds drifting in from the northwest from the north end of the Kitsap.

Very possible SLE gets through this "trough" with no sub-80 highs.

The ground in the first shot to be fair I think was city owned, was fenced for a long time. They recently took the fence away some months ago. Never was watered. 

Yes, my brother lived about a block from there for about six months in 2014.

Jim is right abt the LR. Topical forcing + lifting cyclones are creating a lot of volatility + uncertainty beyond D7. Many will torch, a few will be well below average.

At the end of the day we are in a warming climate system under a Big hadley cell regime, so the odds aren't in our favor

Can see some fires burning in southern OR now that the clouds have cleared. Most of the northern CA fire is going into Nevada.
