Fresh Podcast Posted

The boys are back! After a long hiatus, Mark and Brian return to the podcast with a recap on this crazy weather year. Last winter was one of the worst on record, this summer was the hottest on record… so what does that mean for the next few months? The guys will have an answer.

Plus, space news, Cities of the Week and Joe Raineri makes a special appearance with some big news of his own.

    Near record highs for PDX next week, TWC has a high of 80 next Friday that should tie the record.

    • High Desert Mat says:

      Good πŸ€ luck with that buddy. But by the way things have been I wouldn’t be surprised. But just so you all know, all this record heat and warm nights blah blah blah, remember theres an average for a reason. We will all pay for it with blistering cold and snow. It may not be this winter or the next, but it will come. Nature has a way of balancing things out. Peace

    • Josh "the snowman" Gladstone says:

      2008 started a lot like this.

    • Boring Oregon says:

      I like that thinking Josh! πŸ™‚

    • leer` Geddy says:

      80 might be a stretch but it has happen before on the 16th and since this the year of record highs I think there a good chance, we shall see.

    • JohnD says:

      My “personal bias” is “why not” above average temps through Oct.-Nov. Like, who cares!? Enjoy! Once we get into the statistical winter weather period –Dec.-mid Feb.–however, the gloves come off. Please not another mild-dry-boring heart of the winter–when, seemingly, everywhere else is getting slammed! Only time will tell!

    • Paul D says:

      My personal bias is below normal temps, but that seems to happen a lot less than above normal, so I think what is considered “normal” is slowly creeping upwards, which isn’t a good thing IMO.

  2. leer` Geddy says:

    Looks familiar, something we been seeing for two year now Warm in the west and Cold east ,this is getting so old.

  3. WEATHERDAN says:

    How warm would it be if it were sunny? The FZ LVL over SLE this morning was 15,000 ft. That seems quite high for us considering it’s October and we have a low pressure system moving in on us. Even with the cloud cover we should hit 70-75 today. That would tie our all rime record of 154 days over 70 in a year. In fact it looks like we have a chance to beat last year for the warmest October ever. I would like to see a half an inch of rain this weekend but what I expect is around .25. Washington however may get hammered with 2-3 inches of rain. Next week looks mainly sunny and warm. Barbecue and beer anyone. Peace.

  4. On this date(Oct.9th) in 1996, I recorded a maximum of 77F. That’s here, north of the 49th. Three weeks later on the 30th I saw my first freezing temperature, and in late December 1996 we had a strong arctic wave come through with heavy snow just before New Year’s. So anyone who thinks they know what the weather will be like this winter already, take note.

    • Boring Oregon says:

      Thank you.

    • WEATHERDAN says:

      Roland where you live right by the Fraser river outflow gets a lot more Arctic outbreaks than we do down in Oregon. For example we had a little rain and snow on one day and it was 65 three days later. This was late December 1996. It seems like you get these localized Arctic outbreaks every Winter. I agree with you that you can’t predict the weather 4 months ahead. However what you can do is state that given the conditions in the atmosphere and in the oceans the odds are high that this will be a mild and dry Winter. I would like a heavy mountain snowpack and even a snow storm or two in Salem. I just don’t think we will see it this Winter. But who knows. Hey I really like your posts and hope you post for a long time. Peace.

    • Thanks, Weatherdan. Yes, I think you have a point there. As I mentioned some time ago, we had actually 4 arctic outbreaks here last winter. While none of them lasted long(especially the 2 later ones) our location further north certainly is a factor.

  6. Jason Hougak says:

    Sure gets dark quickly, worked on two wells this week into the night. The color and fog sure made it feel fall like today. Tomorrow into the weekend looks to bring some more much needed rainfall.

  7. Paul D says:

    I like how the 7-day forecast has “another warm week” starting next week. So now “warm” 68-72? I’m not complaining!!

  8. () says:

    This is going to be another horrible winter. Watch out next year, the fires will only get worse.

  9. Josh "the snowman" Gladstone says:

    With all the stallions working in the fox12 weather station, I can’t believe there aren’t lines out the door of hot women.

  10. WEATHERDAN says:

    Want to model ride just a tad? Do it and you might be sad, because that model was an outlier and you’ve been had. Wait till it happens and you will feel rad. Peace.

  11. Paul D says:

    Why does “fresh podcast” sound like something I don’t want to step in πŸ™‚

  13. On this date in 1871, after a hot, dry summer and early autumn, and fanned by the winds of a strong cold front, major fires erupted in or near:

    Chicago, Illinois (the famous one everyone knows about);
    Holland, Michigan;
    Port Huron Michigan; and
    Peshtigo, Wisconsin (not the most famous but the most deadly).

    The Great Chicago Fire gets most of the press, but the Peshtigo Fire was far more deadly, killing at least 1200 and possibly as many as 2500. (Upper bound on the Great Chicago Fire is 300 killed.)

    The Great Chicago Fire was an urban conflagration in a city built largely of shoddy, poorly-regulated wood structures with an underfunded fire department and water infrastructure. (Chicago was but one of many new frontier cities possessing such characteristics to suffer a major fire.) The others were forest fires that wiped whole towns off the map in a matter of minutes.

    LoL 00z gfs has 80’s for both Seattle and PDX by the 24th and why not after all this is Arizona right. someone has some explaining to do this is NOT normal, Christ.

    • Boring Oregon says:

      I’m thinking and hoping that by Oct 24th the sun angle would be too low for another 80Β° day.

    • Joshua says:

      Now it shoes mountain snow and cool rain in the valley for the 22nd – 24th. It will change on the 12z, I’m sure. It is too far out to worry about.

    • Farmer Ted says:

      It’s not at all unusual to have nice warm October weather here in the NW, maybe you just arrived.

    • @Farmer Ted – Yes but 80s in late October is very unusual. Probably just a one-off outlier run, much like the ones that pop up showing an arctic blast that get all the wishcasters needlessly excited.

    “I don’t know why it matters but it’s 99% white.” When talking about a tiny eastern Oregon town that really narrows it down!

  17. Garron (1/3 of a mile from the Hillsboro airport) says:

    Thoroughly enjoyed the show! Good stuff, and hey, you might be doing your 10th podcast from Mars! Can’t wait for the solar eclipse…

  18. Longview 400 ft says:

    Mark, the sound effects were higher than you and Brian. Reverse them and it would make listening more enjoyable. Thank you for the pod casting episode.
