ECMWF Weekly Maps

For the hardcore weather folks…from the 00z Thursday run:





No, I have no idea why some of them get that funny shaded look.  It has something to do with a new WordPress uploading process.

  1. Drier air is definitely moving in now. My dewpoint is down to 23 and falling.

    Mark…any shot of posting the ensemble graphs from GFS and ECMWF? Those are real eye-openers but I can’t find them anywhere which leads me to assume it’s a pay-site feature. Is that true?

  3. David C says:

    Rob, what are your thoughts on the infrared blobs heading our way? It seems to be coming apart and heading due south, but maybe a chunk will give us flurries at least ?

  4. Okay, so THIS is the new one…. jeez 😆

      Probably because people automatically assume that the top post on the WordPress page IS the newest one…

    You know what? I’m actually going to enjoy the upcoming dry spell. Nice blue skies in the dead of winter are a sight for sore model-riding eyes. I’m probably going to get flack for saying this……. but here goes……. I even enjoy some occasional fog (of the freezing variety!). I know, I know… But it can turn ordinary spider webs into works of art.

    This is something I never worry about!

    “Then on Saturday, a week trough moves southward over us, bringing some clouds and perhaps some light precipitation (even snow) to the coast. Maybe the interior could get a light dusting in places…nothing to be worried about.”

  7. pappoose in scappoose says:

    The threat of low elevation snow is much decreased.

    So you’re telling me there’s a chance.

    National Weather Service Portland or

    The models then show one more disturbance dropping down over the offshore upper ridge and in over the Pacific northwest Saturday
    afternoon and evening.Models are in much better agreement now and keep the track offshore so the threat of low elevation snow is much decreased. The 00z and 06z NAM have been wavering a bit over the past several runs with the 00z run bringing the system closer to the area and 06z further offshore.

    So basically, a December 2011 redux?


  9. 6z GFS featured the longest stretch of +9c 850mb temps I can ever remember during January. Depending on where the ridge sets up and cold pool over the Columbia Basin we could be setting the stage for a big east wind storm given the very strong inversion.

  10. The Weather might suck, but our Blazers don’t!
    WOOOOOOOOO what a game!!!!!!!!

  11. Dave in SW PDX (235') says:

    Apparently the ECMWF wants to dump the cold air displaced by the current SSW event into the North Atlantic… the Hudson Bay vortex vanishes after Week 1. If this verifies, there will be plenty of wailing and gnashing of teeth on the ol’ weather blog.

  12. David C says:

    Ok, I’m stupid, what does this show? A warm low? A blocking of cold air? I AM a hardcore weather folk, just new at models.

    I love dry winter weather.

    • pappoose in scappoose says:

      You in!

    • David C says:

      Yeah, some folks do, and I can understand that. I love crisp, clear fall air. But when I think winter, I think snow, wind, ice and scarves and wool caps. I should live inside a Courier and Ives picture!!
