2010 Year End Stats

Tyler Mode suggested we have a year-end stats post…of course a good idea since it appears no more precipitation will fall in the next 30 hours or so.

How about this:

1. Location

2. Rainfall for 2010

3. Extreme High/Low

4.  Anything else you want to add.

    30 degs and east wind developing. L
    Took a drive up to shorty’s corner and back down the back road to langesand Ed. Snow depth appeared to be 6 to 8 inches

    East wind has begun to blow at the 1,100 ft level. I say that elev because it’s not blowing in sandy.

  10. Cgavic sandy Oregon 1,100 ft says:

    Since I don’t have weather station yet, all I can recall is a windy 2010. Extreme east wind and extreme south/southwest wind.

  11. Scappoose Lowlands
    Hi 100 July 8
    Lo 15 November 24
    Rainfall 53.77″

  12. On my home weather station 2010:
    Hi temp: 92.1F
    lo temp: 14.4F
    Precip: 50.19″
    Hi wind gust: 52 mph WSW (anemometer was down for the first 2/3 of the year, but I dont recall any big wind events during that time)

  13. wendy-silverlake,WA says:

    I just reset the thermometer. I don’t know dates, but my high was 97.6 and the low was 6.1. My rain gauge has been full of fir needles all year, so don’t have a clue what the rainfall was.

  14. Karl Bonner says:

    The Dalles Municipal Airport in Dallesport, WA:

    Precip: 15.40 in. (only slightly above average of 14″)
    Hottest: 105F on Aug. 17 (pretty typical for The Dalles)
    Coldest: 10F on Nov. 23 & 24 (unseasonable but very normal if you ignore the calendar date)

    Although the year wasn’t unusually wet as a whole, the months of May and June were. And that caused an unusually green landscape at a time when we should have been mostly browned out.

    December was quite wet, about 40-50% above average. A lot of the recent rain will get sequestered now as the soil freezes this weekend. If this is followed by another bout of very rainy weather in mid-January, soil moisture levels will end up very high going into the second half of winter. Then if the temperature moderates and we get a relatively warm week or so (highs upper 40s/low 50s?), the hillsides should become quite green. They’re already showing a hint of the faint wintry green caused by very short and slow-growing grasses, though late winter can get pretty lush if it’s mild and damp enough.

    I don’t have any data. The only thing I want to add is let’s have a great 2011 and on the blog as well.

    • Mark says:

      Rob, you’ve mentioned several times some of the long-range models, and I’ve take a gander or two. That high needs to make some progress, but the overall pattern turns colder once again.

      Any thoughts on when the local kids are going to have to start pushing this into their forecasts?… I see a lot of hedging going on with the 44/35, 44/35, 44/35 game.
