It rained. A lot. More to come.

Record rainfall east of Cascades & greater than normal elsewhere. Late Monday / early Tuesday are going to be very wet. Lots of water vapor headed our way over Pacific (see image). Support public radio.

More Sun (with caveats)

Big jump in sun from January-March, slower increase to July peak. Clouds interfere, but we do alright for our latitude.

Handing over the rains

Starting today, I'm handing over the reins to a new TLDR'er, Ben. Just one of dozens of applicants, Ben passed a very rigorous screening process. So I leave you in good hands.

Ben is a local mathematician who knows a bit about forecasting (energy use, not weather) and follows the weather as a hobby. He loves big storms (snowy and otherwise), enjoys German board games, roughhousing with his dogs, and enjoying life with his partner, Kim.

Everybody set aside your Seattle Freeze for a minute and give Ben a warm welcome. If he does things right (which I'm sure he will), this will be the longest post on the blog for a while.

Does someone want to take over this blog for me?

CliffMassTLDR got a little too busy to handle his duties as TLDRifier. Anyone want to take over this blog? Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honor and recognition in event of success.
