It's the second rainiest day in Seattle history.
When "rain" and "Seattle history" are used in the same sentence, you know it's some real rain.  :spin:

The volume of rain was one for the record books, thanks to this storm system.


It also brought the record darkest day (in 20 years of bookkeeping).

It's amazing to me that's a thing. Less surprising that we broke it.

Should be noted there's a typo in that tweet: that's MJ (megajoules), not mJ (millijoules). Only off by a factor of a billion! 0.37 mJ would be roughly one-third of the energy required to press a key on my keyboard, which would be thoroughly preposterous regardless of weather conditions.

Tomorrow will be 63 degrees, and Springfield is having it's 10th warmest Christmas this year, at 64 degrees (highest temp on record is 74, 1889).

Going for one of the warmest Christmas Days in Chicago history tomorrow. Mid 50s potentially, warmest since 1994

Solar radiation pressure on a keyboard would be very, very small.  But I don't keep my keyboard outside in the sunlight anyway.

Freezing this morning. Not super notable in and of itself (it is January, after all, and the average low for this date is 34), but it's only the third time this winter we've reached 32 degrees, previously doing so on December 18 and 19.

It was about 32F when I arrived up in Yosemite and about 50F when I left.  There was plenty of hardened snow above 6,000 feet but it was only about a foot deep and easy to walk on.

It will be raining for the next couple days with the back end of the system being snow. Cross the border in to Kansas and you're looking at 3-4" of snow. Here, we're looking at about half an inch.

Boy this storm is going to be fun this weekend. Snow, wind, ice, heavy rain, flooding, and tornadoes. Moderate severe risk today, enhanced tomorrow

We had quite a day for weather here in ATL. Most of the day was cloudy with on/off rain and temperatures in the lower 70s. A tornado watch was issued at about 2 PM this afternoon; 3 hours later we got a couple severe thunderstorm warnings as an impressive squall line moved through, bringing some high wind gusts, heavy rain, and some thunder and lightning. No tornadoes touched down in GA as far as I know, but there are multiple reports of thunderstorm wind damage and the line is still continuing off to the east.

Should cool off a bit after today, but more rain is in the forecast for tomorrow into the first half of next week.

Here too, but I'm not falling for it... there will be plenty more cold and snow before spring is here for good.  :)

50 degrees with a gusty south wind in Oklahoma City. We got absolutely no notable weather Friday. Some rain showers...that's about it.

At the moment it's a bit above freezing in Wichita, but supposed to be good walking weather with little wind.  We're supposed to see highs in the fifties later this week.

Last Friday it was rainy and cold, and on Saturday we woke to snow--fortunately for those who do not know how to drive in it, it was no more than a dusting.

73 and clear. It's been a pretty warm winter although there have been some cold mornings in the 30s with highs in the 50s-60s a few days.

I decided to wait on this fire report until now, as I had to take a quick walk down the road and back before I could figure out the potential causes and effects of it.

There was a three-alarm Fire in the under-construction Fusion rental apartment complex right behind this development area here, and it managed to spread to an adjoining area where people do live and that was definitely a cause for concern. Needless to say, nothing could stop the fire in its tracks and that’s why they finally have a temporary fire station by the Town Center area.

I was at 66 degrees this time yesterday, en route to the first 70 degree reading I've ever seen in January.

Right now? 32 and light snow...

A few inches of snow scattered around the region. My town got less than an inch, the next over got 3-5 inches. Gotta love microclimates.


Expected to be very cold this week, with highs in the 20s for the first time in years.

Four straight days of snow. Only about 3 inches where I am, but other parts of the region are seeing much more. Schools have been closed for the entire week.
