BLI now up to 94. Ties a monthly record.

4th time they've tied/broken their 1949-2007 all-time record (94 in August 1960), since 2007.

94 in July 2007

96 in July 2009

99 in June 2021

94 so far in Aug 2021

Maybe we can have an 8 month summer this year. It started in March.

Well we’re trending towards a 6 months summer anyway so might as well just skip to 8.

Hoping 2021 is an anomaly because otherwise it is time to invest in AC.

I have already told my wife if we have another summer like this next year I am moving. I cannot keep going through this when I remember how it used to be.

Might as well. Wayfair is currently having 12,000 to 14,000BTU Black and Decker portable ACs for about $400 at 25-30% off. 
 

I invested in one a few years ago and never regretted it.

I'm trying to do everything I can to get my family to move to Indiana. I hope we can in the next couple of years because it's so painful to watch our childhood biome die.

Agreed. Although, considering how bad the smoke has been in recent years, if this is as bad as it gets, I’ll take it.

That's a sweet deal. I'm thinking central AC - I have a bad feeling that the lack of a central AC is soon to become an impediment to the resale of a house in Oregon.

You can see the strong NE winds pushing smoke into Bellingham. Here in the south sound we’re not too bad. Will have to watch those fires east of the cascades too…

I get the feeling it’s going to get worse…but atleast if it does get worse it’ll be pushed out in a couple days.

Just had to take my wife her inhaler, and its gross out there.  Very hot dry wind with strong smoke smell.  Also looks like we have had some ash fall up here somewhere as well.

Pretty comical the Euro is showing another bout of triple digits for the Willamette Valley late in the run. A 2013 type of September would be an absolute godsend but my gut feeling is another dry and ridgy month. We've gotten kind of lucky with generally averageish Septembers in recent years, though 2020 would have been record warm if not for the smoke inversion episode.

I'm wondering if this is our version of a 1930s dust bowl year. It's been crazy, unprecedently dry which is no doubt contributing to the heat this year - as Dewey pointed out in a normal year you would not have expected yesterday to have widespread highs of 102-104 in the WV with these 850s and no downsloping. The climate projections I've seen don't seem to show decreasing spring rainfall for the PNW so I'm hoping this was a fluke year that wasn't made more likely because of climate change. PDX having just 3.80" of rain in the last 5 and a half months is absolutely bonkers.

Flatiron may need to look at possible UHI or land use issues at EUG. Looks like an all time monthly record maximum low of 67 there today. Obviously an outlier.

Alas, no new record. 😢

Air Quality Alert was hoisted about an hour ago for King/Kitsap/Pierce/Snohomish counties through 7PM Saturday. They expect the smoke to worsen tomorrow before hopefully letting up a bit on Saturday.

Lovely.

I’d just stay indoor. F this.

So sorry you have to go through this. Stay healthy my friend. 

Thank you. I've been preparing for this for months except I can't afford a real gas mask so I just keep using surgical masks.

There is a hint of campfire smell outside. It is very unfortunate that this is becoming the norm for us every summer. 

That's what I noticed last night when I went out to view the meteor shower.

Tied it. A historic night in the rural south valley.

It was 68 when I got up this morning around 6am. The record max/min for Silver Falls for the date is 62 from 2014.
