Re: Holy crap

The 500mb analysis is the upper level winds (jet stream). They are always much higher than the surface winds. That being said, these are very strong upper level winds.

I looked at a 7 day grib last night. It looks OK at along the coast. I would not want to be at sea in any vessel.

Re: Holy crap

Looks like the ridge on the west coast will persist long enough to fend off the storms.

Re: Holy crap

Better enjoy today then, it doesn't get any better than this in mid January. Feels deceptively like spring (and the daffodils are up 4-5 inches-weird).

But nothing to with AGW.

It is warm in Calgary because the jet streams were carrying warm air north and then back down. A weird warm north wind. It was warmer to the north of us.

These lows that developing are going to produce chinook conditions for us. Sunday will be cool and then the chinook comes in on Monday.

Re: Holy crap

chinooks are not good here in washington. Usually a lot of snow melts, temps are above freezing on MOST of the higher peaks in the cascades. Avalanches etc........

have not looked at a forecast since last night, looks foggy thru about tues/wed last I looked, late wed has a semi chance of rain and possibly breaking up the inversion in the main part of puget sound.
