Happy Solstice

| No Comments

Another turn around the Sun.  Officially at 7:59am this morning.  Lighting a fire in the hearth tonight and leaving some treats out for the fey folk.

The days WILL get longer...  Keep telling myself that...

Meanwhile, we look to be in store for a White Christmas - from Cliff Mass:

Major Cold Wave Ahead for the Northwest. A White Christmas is Possible
We are about to experience the coldest weather since last February, with temperatures falling into the lower 20s over the western lowlands, with teens over eastern Washington.

We are about to transition between seasonal "warmth" and upcoming icebox conditions, so start preparing now--the transition is quite certain at this point.

The upper-level pattern today (shown or 10 PM tonight at 500 hPa--about 18,000 ft) shows a very high amplitude wave pattern with a HUGE ridge of high pressure over the eastern Pacific and a deep low off northern CA. The coldest low-level air is now east of the Rockies at this point and temperatures over the Northwest are seasonal.

That is going to change.

Heading to the farm tomorrow for an overnight - back to the island to hole up for the weather.
