That is it for the night

| No Comments
Got lots of sun, had a wonderful time, went out for Thai food, came back and did the daily books for the bakery and now I am ready to crash. Heading out to the DaveCave(tm) for a bit and then sleep off this sunshine... Good to finally get some decent weather. Seattle meteorologist Cliff Mass presents some numbers and yes, we are cooling. A lot.
Out of the Refrigerator into the Frying Pan!
You are about to experience a magical transition, from cold and damp to extraordinary warmth and sun. It will seem perfect. It will be perfect.

Well folks, you knew this spring has been bad, but the new numbers for the average March through May temperatures at Sea-Tac are in, and by any reasonable measure (average temperature, average maximum), this has been the coldest March through May at Sea-Tac since dependable records are available (1956).

Lets begin by viewing the 5 coldest springs ( average daily temperature for March-May) in the last 55 years from 1957 through 2011 at SeaTac:
1) 2011 47.6
2) 1975 47.8
3) 2002 47.9
4) 1964 48.0
5) 1962 48.0
We win. (some of you might count this as a loss!)
A bit more:
There was a warming trend into the late 1990s and the last decade has been relatively cool.
Global average for 1998 was the highest in recent history. It held constant for a few years and has been in steady decline ever since. Sunspot activity for the last six months is about the same as during the Maunder Minimum. A cheery note to leave you with but...
