August Wx Obs in the Pacific Northwest

Yeah I noted last night how similar hour 240 of the Euro looked to late June. I think we're going to see a pretty significant heatwave once this trough moves through, though 110 is (probably) not going to happen again. I'm really hoping we can avoid a round of offshore flow as this trough into the mountain west but I know some sadists out there might enjoy it.

Are there weather sadists? Are they into whips and chains and barometers?

That cell just weakened, and it wasn't a direct shot over downtown. I'll log it as a vicinity thunder.

Any more later? 

Boy, if we could get some sun breaks here, watch out! We definitely have the high dewpoints.

How's that cold continental air and troughing from the first of July working out for you?  ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

 

And no, I don't hope a second trough follows on the heels of this impotent looking thing scheduled to roll through this week.

 

This is summer man.  It should be sunny and warm every day until October 1st at least.

 

Euro shows us getting two more days in the 70s before ridging arrives. Suicide weather.

18Z vs 12Z. Washington cascades do better on this run. Overall I’d say it’s slightly improved.

I'll be hitting the 40 day benchmark for highs over 90 in just a couple days. Yikes ;)

My sentiments exactly. New normal though for a variety of reasons that is not politically correct to say on here.

What’s up with the 59 degree high at PDX next Friday on the 18z GFS? Yea right. Of course, if it was 109, it would verify. 

Ya never know. I have fond memories of a Fall style front in mid-August 2008. And one just like that happened years later but I forget what year it was. 2019?

Happy August everyone.

I have a possibly silly question.  This topic is called, "August Wx Obs in the Pacific Northwest."

My question is; what does the "wx" stand for.  If it stands for weather... why the letter 'x?'

 

Also currently 69F.

Yes, Wx stands for weather. 

Hope August is cooler for everyone! Or is today July 32nd? 😜

I remember that one in 2008. It was the year I moved to Oregon. It might have actually been on my birthday. .25” of rain and legit sweater weather. Glorious.

The last significant July/August trough we’ve seen around here. PDX put up a 62/48 day on 8/31/08. Awful winter followed.

I never predicted continental air. That was Jim.

I do predict I’ll be laughing my a** off watching your house burn to the ground.

More like the last time December was actually snowy. 😛

Well I've had a couple decently snowy Decembers since then but different climates.

Kind of an unusual marine layer today. Oregon coast is mainly clear while the south WA coast has inland penetration of 20+ miles.

Looks like those fires in Northern California are getting active this afternoon.

The EPS control was pretty nuts on the 12z.

That’s the run-to-run change, not the actual height anomalies.

I'm getting more and more wary as the smoke gets heavier and heavier.  Our marine layer is gone and its all smoke.  There is an orange hue in the sky and the mountains are completely gone from view.  They sky is a gray, orange hued mass. 

I know all the forecasters said the smoke will remain high in the atmosphere and not effect ground level, but I am starting to think otherwise will happen now. :( Low level is becoming obscured by smoke and at times you can even get whiffs of the scent of smoke.  

While I doubt it will be as bad as smoke events in the past, I am willing to think we will have some smoke at ground level if things don't change, sooner than later. 

Currently 67F.
