PNW October 2021, Pumpkin Spice Edition


Recommended Posts

In the 35-37 degree range out here... in the valley as well.    Does not seem to be any frost.   Our dahlias and roses will continue to bloom longer it appears.

Just noticed that there is actually some frost on top of the car in driveway.   Maybe it was colder before and warming up now.   The North Bend station bottomed out this morning at 35.4 degrees.

Sea Tac hit 37, so Jim got his record. 
 

A few teens in Central and eastern Oregon. Several spots in the willamette valley have hit freezing.

The lowest we have gotten so far is 35, I didn't have to deal with any frost on my commute to work (from downstairs to my office upstairs) but looks like there is a little frost on the roof of my neighbor's house.  I tried letting the puppy out to run off some energy before I started working and she was having none of that.  She went charging out the door, got to the bottom of the steps, and decided she wasn't so interested in playing outside after all LOL!

My niece up in Alaska got her first show with the aurora borealis.  She just moved up there this past summer.  Pics from her Hubby

Was visible in Washington, too. But I bet Alaska had a better display.

And sunrises usually aren't too impressive with Squalicum Mountain to my immediate east, but this one was pretty amazing.  Quality is not the best as it is taken through my "office" window, but the colors were amazing.

33 here this morning.  Feels like a typical fall morning when the skies are clear. Nothing top tier though.

 

20 and solid ice would be to tier.

Getting this cold in the first half of October is fairly impressive but not really top tier. I’d already had a freezing low temp on the 10th of October in 2019 still no freeze yet here looks like I’ll be waiting a while longer.

The aurora in Whatcom County was quite bright when I checked a little after 11:00 pm. No camera and long exposure needed to see it. I rushed in to text a few of my friends and it had faded a lot by the time I went back out to look a few minutes later. Five or ten minutes after that and it became totally invisible to the naked eye. Fun while it lasted, and glad I decided to check that one last time before going to bed.

SLE has an impressive-3.7 departure so far this month, but one doesn’t have to look back far to find a colder start to October.

You should get your first sub-freezing high this winter some time. Even places like Medford haven't had one since
Jan 2017.

It's already a very unprecedented streak of futility in that department for 5 years now. It's gotta end at some point.

Today's sun angle and daylight duration is like February 28th, the last day of meteorological winter.

It sure would be nice if the 12Z GFS could verify... almost a week with no rain or storms starting late Sunday.   

I assume it won't happen, but a full week of sunshine to enjoy the fall colors would be wonderful.     We have had enough rain up here and November is coming up fast.

We’re probably due for some ridging in late October and early November like some others have pointed out. Some of those long range ensemble means look like it anyways.

Unfortunately I was sawing logs by 11 (or at least headed that way).  In all reality, I have too many lights to my immediate north to have any hope of seeing them unless its a major once in a lifetime event.  I need to scout out a dark area that is close by.

Our dahlias escaped... and might be able to make a much longer run now.   They just keep blooming until the first hard freeze.  😀

Yeah, they are a gift that keeps giving.  We have too many plants and have run out of places to put the flowers so their demise is not a real heartbreaker for us.
