Somewhat off topic, but there has been lots of talk about the Atlantic current slowing or even shutting down in the news. 
 

What impact could that have on PNW weather? 

That is a total unknown as far as I know.  No doubt it would have major impact on global patterns.  Probably even more profound than ENSO.

I would have to see it happen to believe it though.

The models hint at a possible -EPO - PNA pattern developing the second week of November.  Just something to watch for now.

It always overdoes everything 

Couldn't have said it better myself.  It always overdoes cold also when it's over a day out.  I have no idea why they don't fix that model.  It's supposed to be specifically for fine details in North America, and it sucks.

I think the only winners in a windstorm are the ones who get the least wind

I'm ok with it up to 35 or 40.  Over that it's a pain in the arse.

Yikes.  There's a story in the news about a ship off the WA Coast losing shipping containers from the rough seas.  With the back up of freighters out there this could be a serious issue with this storm.  More supply chain problems.

There's a bunch of freighters off the WA coast right now?

I've heard they are stacked up everywhere due to the problems at the ports.  Not sure exactly where they are sitting though.

What could have been 

0B92964C-70CE-48AE-87A3-D1F797B94135.png

A little info about the 1934 event...

The gale of '34 appears to have been the biggest, most destructive storm to strike the Pacific Northwest in the time period delineated by the January 29, 1921 and Columbus Day 1962 windstorms. For some Puget Sound locations, such as Seattle, this was possibly the strongest storm on record. The extratropical cyclone brought high winds and widespread damage to all three of the major population centers: Portland, Seattle and Vancouver, British Columbia. Numerous buildings were damaged or destroyed. Unreinforced masonry walls and chimneys collapsed, roofs took to the air, boats sunk, countless trees toppled sometimes crushing cars and structures, fences fell, powerlines were downed and telephone service rendered inoperative (Vancouver Sun 1934a). In a manner similar to a hurricane, the combination of low pressure, strong winds and high tide produced a storm surge on the Pacific Coast that flooded many neighborhoods and towns. In some cases people were trapped by the rising water and had to be rescued during the storm. The gale was also deadly, taking a human toll that is second only to the Columbus Day Storm of 1962. At least 18 people were killed in this event, many from collapsing structures and sunken vessels.

Sounds like a blast.

For a lot of people on here this is a be careful what you wish for scenario.

We were discussing media sensationalism for that first storm on Thursday. Luckily, we got people like Scott out there doing their best to combat that clickbaity hype.

 

Several of my buddies and coworkers knows how much I'm into weather and climatology. Pretty much been getting an onslaught of texts asking how bad the storm is because they "read on and heard on the news that there is a 'bomb cyclone' and that they're worried about power outages" -- had to ensure them that everything is okay and the storm is way offshore. 

This is the type of media sensationalism that we have to deal with and it targets a certain group of people who have no clue about anything about weather for clicks. It's also up to us to not fan the flames on social media by posting these type of maps without a broader context and explanation. 

This is a fight that I'll be with Scott all the way.

Big-time blocking develops in the somewhat more believable range, too. I'm ready for it...been a painfully dull/warm fall so far for much of the country.

Absolutely gorgeous drive to and from my friends place in Carnation this morning, the color was amazing! There where not many places to easily pull off of SR-203 but I did take a few pics up off of the side road by their property. Then stopped at the Lake Goodwin lake house on the way back. Was a drizzle fest! 
.16” so far on the day at home.

I see your glass table is still intact.  Like I mentioned a couple of years ago ours exploded on a hot summer day.  Pretty bizarre.

There's still people that are new to the whole bomb term, overall it's creating a mess. 

When a storm of true historical magnitude ever hits the PNW, the words will have less impact on viewers.

It is! However that happened to me at my uncles summer place at Lake Entiat last year during my solo-cation, it just blew up for no apparent reason other than it was old and been in extreme temps in Eastern Wa for 20yrs. It was quite the mess to clean up and cut into my jetsking time!

Yeah... the colors are just spectacular right now in the Snoqualmie Valley.   Wish we could have just one sunny day over the next week... but by time the rain takes a break the trees will be mostly bare.

My parents house is up that hill! It's a total pain in the a** sometimes with the blind corners (my mom actually got in a car accident up there recently due to someone speeding around a corner too fast) and potholes all over in the gravel but all the trees and vegetation up there really make it a beautiful drive in the fall.

Been pretty much dry here but I’ve been watching the showers go by just to my west. Somehow the rain knows you’re in a tent…
