Advection Fog Over Lake Washington!

Advection Fog Over Lake Washington!

Folks west of the Cascade crest smashed record high temperatures today as a Pineapple Express continued to pump extremely warm and moist air originating from the Hawaiian Islands into the region. The fact that today was relatively calm and dry definitely helped, as we were able to get a little more solar insolation and didn’t have any winds aloft mixing cooler temperatures down to the surface. The chart below shows today’s maximum high temperatures. Sea-Tac hit 68 degrees today, crushing…

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 10:27 p.m. Here fishy fishy One reason I love warm summers like the one we have been having is because of the excellent fishing they provide. When the water is warmer, the fish are hungrier, and thus grow to larger sizes. This was probably taken in 2004 +- a couple years, but whatever summer it was, I remember that there was a pretty long sunny stretch that was particularly good for fishing. Let’s take a look…

I was absolutely…

Friday, June 17, 2011 1:08 P.M. I am loving this weather right now! Sure, it could be a little warmer, but it is nice and sunny outside, and that is definitely good enough to put me in a good mood. Just like the past few mornings, we had some morning clouds, but they were significantly weaker this time around, and much of the low ones burned off at around 10 A.M. I am personally hoping we get some massive heat…

Well into Summer

Well into Summer

Thursday, July 15, 2010 9:52 A.M. It’s hard to believe that only a few weeks ago we were wondering if we were ever going to reach 75 degrees for a high. I, for one, was hoping for us to stay at 74 for the rest of the summer. In other words, have a nice, comfortable summer, but just keep the record going. Getting to 75 would be like stopping a marathon when you are on the closing stretch. But now…
