My weather discussion is found below....check out the video.  Today I talk about Olympic rainshows, smoke over California, high humidity, and look out at the forecast for the next week!

  1. Thanks so much for your time and efforts into creating this great feature! It’s even better than the radio station that I will not name because of the graphics. When one door closes another opens.

  2. Thanks so much for your time and effort in what is even better than the radio-station-that-should-not-be-identified’s segment because there are graphics and they actually move too!

  3. Hi Ciff. I'm a person who has almost completely given up on broadcast news for the internet. I really enjoyed this segment. It's the first time I've ever listened to you. And I can listen to it when I want to, share it, listen to it again. Looking forward to your podcasts.

  5. Thanks for the forecast Cliff!

    You might want to let your friends at NWS know that we are having a full-blown windstorm up here in Whatcom County right now. Branches blown off and debris flying around.

    Not a single mention of winds in the 8:49 am update that was just published...

  6. This is fantastic . . . the inclusion of all the visuals makes this better than the radio version. Who needs KNKX? I hope you will keep doing this for a long time to come, and maybe not just on Fridays when there are significant weather events imminent or occurring (e.g., snowstorms). By the way, I don't think most of us "fans" would mind if you found some commercial sponsors and you could monetize this; I'm happy to endure a 30 second ad or two and have no issue with you making a few bucks off of it.

  8. We can use a good stratiform rain event over here in E.Washington;very little rain the past two months.
    I noticed on your MM5 model that the remnants of TS Genevieve are forecast to move inland over California early next week.Perhaps another lightning event to exacerbate the fire situation? Forecasters and fire control people must be on edge.

  10. Excellent vlog. I really appreciate the visuals with the explanations. Do you think our heatwaves are over for this year or is Sept going to get hot and miserable, which happens every once in a while. Still waiting for the "change" where you can feel it in the air that fall is on the way. So far it hasn't happened yet!

  12. I also like this new format with the visuals. Maybe publish in both youtube and as a podcast?

  13. Up here on the west side of Lake Stevens and the weather station is reading that the morning low only dropped to 66. That's incredible considering this area rarely sees lows that fail to drop below 60. Unfortunately, it looks like the low of 66 probably won't even be officially recorded because it's supposed to drop down to around 60 before midnight. It gets me wondering how many times an exceptionally high night time low has gotten essentially erased from the statistics because of the post-evening temps being lower.

  14. This is great. Lot of fun to watch! You’ve got a really pleasant voice that makes it a pleasure to listen to as well. And yeah, what’s up with the wind storm? Hit us pretty hard on North Whidbey too.

  16. Aren't record dew points and high atmospheric water content predicted by global warming? I'd like to hear why the record was broken in Washington, in addition to hearing that it was broken in such grand fashion. Same for the unusual lightening strikes in California.

  17. It was great to hear your voice again, Dr. Mass!

    Excellent presentation, including the videos. They added a lot and helped me learn what to interpret what I see when I go to the GOES part of NWS.

    On the image that showed the smoke pouring out of CA to the northeast, I noticed squiggly lines that looked similar to the ones you previously identified as atmospheric waves. Are smoke clouds subject to atmospheric waves, too?

    Thank you for bouncing back stronger than ever!

  18. Hi Dr. Mass,
    I like the new format and visuals very much and it is wonderful to hear your voice again!

    I noticed squiggly lines on the image that showed the smoke over CA moving to the NE. The lines looked, to my untrained eye, like the atmospheric waves you mentioned earlier when we were looking at satellite images of clouds. Are smoke clouds subject to atmospheric waves, too?

  22. Cliff, thanks for the amazing updates and the read on the smoke out of CA. I look forward to watching these in the coming weeks. Any chance of getting links to some of the sites you are showing during each VLOG?

    This has me seriously thinking of signing up for the ATMOS101 class this fall. It has been nearly 40 years since I took that at the UW, might be time for a refresher.

  23. Thanks so much, Cliff, for keeping us all informed. I'm furious with the radio station that will not be named for cutting your forecast and have told them so, for whatever that's worth. Keep up the great work. I so wish I could take a class from you!
