    Latest CFS Forecast Nino3.4 SST Anomalies

    Ensemble mean trending into weak Nino territory and overall the consensus seems to possibly be building momentum in that direction.

    Extremely heavy showers rolled through Salem at about 1:00 PM. As heavy as last weekend but mercifully short lived. Still maybe .25 in 20 minutes time. Got an AMS email from Steve Pierce about analog years to this year. He talked about this current pattern and how it related to other winters. He said that this current pattern was favorable for an increased chance of windstorms and snowstorms this winter.I hope Pete Parsons is wrong about October being a colder and wetter than normal month. I’m just not ready for winter just yet. Snow in November would be ok. But let’s have a nice October. Peace.

    Wow, what a amazing photo! It’s down pouring with rain out here to, with maybe a little hail moving east real fast. Cool to see timberline got 7-12” of snow, hope it’s not to early!!

    MORE ORGANIZED SHOWER ACTIVITY IS BRINGING PRECIPITATION TO MOST OF THE FCST AREA THIS
    MORNING…WITH SOME SHOWERS PRODUCING BRIEF HEAVY DOWNPOURS. A COUPLE OF LIGHTNING STRIKES HAVE BEEN DETECTED OFFSHORE…BUT FOR THE MOST
    PART THE SHOWERS HAVE NOT HAD ENOUGH VERTICAL EXTENT TO PRODUCE CHARGE SEPARATION. DECIDED TO CUT THE THUNDER THREAT BACK…INCLUDING ONLY THE NORTH COAST AND COAST RANGE ZONES THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON. THE FCST MODELS INDICATE THE UPPER LEVEL SHORTWAVE THAT IS DRIVING THIS ENHANCED SHOWERS WILL BE THROUGH THE REGION BETWEEN 18Z AND 21Z…SO THINK THE THUNDER THREAT WILL BE MINIMAL AFTER THIS POINT. THE HEAVIER SHOWERS HAVE ALSO DROPPED SNOW LEVELS DOWN TO SOME OF THE HIGHER CASCADE PASSES THIS MORNING. A LOOK AT AREA WEBCAMS SHOW SOME LIGHT SOME SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ALONG THE SIDE OF THE ROAD AT ELEVATIONS DOWN INTO THE 4500 TO 5000 FT RANGE. HOWEVER…IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT THERE SHOULD BE ANY SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS TO MOUNTAIN TRAVEL AT THIS TIME.

    So is anyone going to help me out with my model timing?… I don’t even remember where that post was…Since mark went all — post whore on us over the last 36 hours…

    EJ… help me out bro! lol…. I’m 3 hours off all the time… Why?

      Pacific time = GMT minus 8 hours. There may be some differences in when the US and the rest of the world go off/on daylight time (and many places don’t do it at all).

    • Jethro says:

      Didn’t see the post, but… 00z tomorrow = 5:00 PM today (until time change, then it will be 4:00 PM). Likewise, 12z on the models = 5:00 AM (for a few more weeks). 06z & 18z = 11:00. Start of precip is a little trickier, because you need to watch the time window being displayed (6 hr. Precip, etc). I always like the time-height cross sections for timing.
