Some Maps

Last night’s monthly run of the ECMWF, broken down into weekly 500mb anomaly maps:





Interesting that the ridging way out to our west and northwest keeps wanting to pop up.  Maybe something interesting will happen in that week 3 period.

Here’s the ECMWF ensemble chart from the 12z run today…nothing to see except the ridging over us weakens a bit:

      Down to 31 already at 8:30 tonight up here. It will be interesting to see if it gets colder than the 22 reading I had this morning.

    It will be interesting to see what the 0z chart shows later on. The 240 hr panel on the 12z chart showed something that looked interesting as I mentioned earlier on the groups but the Canadian GEM pretty much threw that idea out the door and it really only was close to matching in the 216 hour time frame.

    The ECMWF idea was to have the persistent ridging retrograde out back into the ocean and let a low pressure area slide down the coast. The classic thing needed around here for really interesting weather but I am not really getting my hopes to high just yet until I see more runs of these maps I mentioned here.

    It was awfully frigid here in the last 24 hours in Southeast Tacoma. Yesterday’s high was 38 and the low was 22. Fortunately there was no fog overnight to make a nice slick mess around here this morning.
