Title: What has been the 2019 climate according to WeatherCat?
Post by: elagache on February 01, 2019, 10:47:20 PM
Dear WeatherCat observers of the seasons turning,

Not only has another month passed, but we have put the first month of 2019 under our belt.  So to keep the forum tidy I decided to start a dedicated 2019 thread and moving it observations topic since these are very much WeatherCat observations.  As always, I'll give WeatherRCP a plug.  Here is what WeatherCat observed at Canebas Weather Station for January 2019:

(http://www.canebas.org/WeatherCat/Forum_support_documents/WeatherCat%20climate%20reports%20-%202019/WeatherCat_January_2019_climate.jpg)

My results are consistent with December with the positive of more rain.  When it did rain the storms were more extreme than in the past.

So what did WeatherCat observe in your neck of the woods?

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

January was...
   Cooler than average (26.4F versus an average of 28.1)
   Wetter than average (2.31 in versus an average total of 2.14)
   Calmer than average (a wind run of 4160 miles versus an average of 4229)

So far in February is telling:
   Cooler than average (11.1F versus an average of 29.4)

Dear Steve, Jenna, and WeatherCat climate watchers,

Okay you two beat me!  Still, I do have my usual entry thanks to Stu's tag and Grand's WeatherCatRCP:

(http://www.canebas.org/WeatherCat/Forum_support_documents/WeatherCat%20climate%20reports%20-%202019/WeatherCat_February_2019_climate.jpg)

So in general colder and more stormy than normal here in Northern California.

Dear Steve and WeatherCat climate watchers,

Okay Steve you still beat me!  Although Jenna will have to catch up this time!  Here is my contribution thanks to Stu and Grand:

(http://www.canebas.org/WeatherCat/Forum_support_documents/WeatherCat%20climate%20reports%20-%202019/WeatherCat_March_2019_climate.jpg)

It is a bit interesting in that the temperature and wind are consistent with more storms.  However, the rainfall is below what has happened in the past.  The reason has been a few years in which there were some atmospheric river events in March.  I only have 9 years of March data and in 3 of those years the station got over 10 inches of rain.  So that skews the statistics.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Of course, this is Maine and we received 4 inches of the white stuff yesterday in a lovely little Nor'easter.....this is after EVERYTHING had melted and I foolishly thought Spring (and MUD SEASON) had arrived.
NOPE.

NOPE.

Ol' man winter is still hanging around the west coast of the United States as well.  So you may be seeing snow for a while.  This past March was really cold for you compared to your averages.  How long has your station been collecting data?  I suppose you aren't counting snow in your precipitation totals and that's why the average rainfall is so small - correct?

Certainly an interesting report - thanks for sharing.

I didn't want Jennajon feeling bad about being the last one to the line this time, so here's my offering. I made it large enough that Steve could see it without getting out his magnifying glass. My excuse is that we just arrived home from a fabulous trip to New Zealand and Australia. They have weather there too.

I was able to free my car from a snow berm last night with only 45 minutes of shoveling snow and ice. Hahaha. Welcome to Springtime in the Rockies.

New Zealand is absolutely gorgeous and the locals we met were delightfully friendly. As for Australia, we had a great time there too, but this is the wrong time of year to visit Queensland (still raining, hot & humid). But we loved the flora and fauna in the Daintree Rainforest National Park and, of course, the Great Barrier Reef.

Attention fellow WeatherCatters:

A few hours go we received our first snow flurries of the season. The temperature dropped to 38 (3.3C) and we had snow flurries for several minutes. We have the first dusting of snow on the mountains above us. Total precipitation so far today is 1.13 inches (2.87 cm). And it's only September 11. This has been a good water year where I live, after several years of drought and lots of wildfires.

Thanks Blick and Steve for sharing your local climate.  Here is what Canebas weather station observed:

At least September showed some cooling and precipitation.  Those winds aren't helping the fire dangers though.

Dear Steve and WeatherCat climate watchers,

(http://www.canebas.org/WeatherCat/Forum_support_documents/WeatherCat%20climate%20reports%20-%202019/WeatherCat_October_2019_climate.jpg)

Alas the promise of rain in September completely vanished in October and the temperatures were marginally warmer.  As the news reports indicate, the real troublemakers were the strong winds.  October was most definitely not a good month in California.

Anyone else has a WeatherCat climate report that they would like to share?

Cooler sooner around here, who cares what WC says?! My wife turned on our gas logs this morning! Had the first killing frost late last month. Several already this month. Not like in the Rockies, but still a warning shot across the thermometer! :)

BTW, I notice that my "Last Month" (October) Historical data shows the monthly low temp for "31.4F on Nov 1, 2019, 12:49 am". If that is a local vs GMT 'problem' it seems backwards. I'll have to check my settings in WC... [banghead] :-\ ???
