2013 Top Ten Weather Events For Eastern Washington / North Idaho

In chronological order, here are 10 of the top weather stories of 2013 for eastern Washington and northern Idaho.  L/C Valley June flood, Rathdrum severe winds...

Region falls short on snow


Many areas around the region have fallen behind seasonal averages when it comes to snowfall. The Cascades into the Columbia Basin seem to be the worst off with some areas such as Wenatchee only seeing a Trace of snow so far this winter. This chart sums up some of the snowfall shortages, the rarity of this winters lack of snowfall and how much snow we need to get back to normal. Looking at the next 7 days it does not appear that any significant winter system will enter the region, so these deficits could become worse as we move into the new year.

Decapitated goat discovered on levy

Published: Dec 26, 2013

CLARKSTON, WA - Asotin County Sheriffs deputies are investigating a disturbing case after the discovery of a decapitated goat by the Snake River.

We want to warn you, for some of our more sensitive viewers this story and images may be considered graphic.

According to investigators, a goat was placed in a dog carrier with its head removed and left on the levy in Clarkston. Captain Dan Hally said this does not point to a satanic ritual but they're not ruling anything out at this time.

Odds for a White Christmas in the NorthWest

For the Spokane area and the Palouse, it's going to be a close call.

As expected, Friday's storm brought snow to many, but not all, valley locations. The Columbia Basin received little if any snow, while southeast Washington and the southern Panhandle saw the best snowfall, up to 8". Most other locations received around 2-3". Now, can we hold on to it? Warmer air began moving into our area on Monday, along with some light rain (or snow along the Canadian border). But the real problem will be the warm, moist wind. This kind of wind eats snow rather quickly.

The northern valleys and Idaho Panhandle will probalby keep most of their snow. For the Spokane area and the Palouse, it's going to be a close call. These will be the windiest locations, so a couple of inches on the ground Monday morning may disappear by the evening. Any snow left by Tuesday morning will survive until Christmas, as the weather will be dry and cold for the remainder of the week.

The Fracking/Ozone Mystery-

There is an important atmospheric mystery that needs to be understood, quickly.                                Cliff Mass Weather Blog Dec. 23, 2013
 As many of you know, natural gas fracking has become widespread across the
United States and is now a major source of natural gas used in heating, power
generation, and other applications.  Such fracking injects chemicals and sand
 under high pressure to produce cracks in underlying rock strata, with the sand
 keeping the pores open to allow the escape of large quantities of natural gas
(methane).

And now the mystery part.   In regions where fracking is being done, some quite rural, extraordinarily high ozone values are being observed.   And such ozone values have been particularly elevated over regions of snow.  But why?

 And let's remember that ozone, while wonderful protection from ultraviolet radiation when concentrated in the stratosphere, is NOT your friend near the surface.  Ozone is a powerful lung irritant that contributes to asthma and other breathing disorders.   High ozone values can also lead to heart disease and premature death and can greatly damage plants.

Pretty nasty stuff.

So it is very important to understand why fracking is associated with high ozone values, why snow is important, and what we can do to mitigate such ozone production during fracking operations

Medical Marijuana overhaul includes mandatory list of medical patients

Published: Dec 18, 2013

CLARKSTON, WA - A complete set of regulation changes for the medical marijuana industry in Washington may be taking place next year.

marijuania moratorium approved in Asotin County

Published: Dec 18, 2013
CLARKSTON, WA - A sixth month marijuana moratorium is now in effect after Monday night's Asotin County Commission meeting. 

The hold restricts the use, sale and distribution of pot in the county. This includes the city limits of Clarkston as they passed their own separate moratorium last week. Asotin County Attorney Jane Risley said the hold is for the benefit of the zoning and planning commission. Risley said the federal government shares some of their concerns with the law. However the moratorium didn't pass without pushback.

"My belief is that a moratorium is not necessary," said Clarkston resident Matt Clemens.

Can You ID.me website helps Clarkston Police catch criminals

Published: Dec 18, 2013
CLARKSTON, WA - Just mere days after the Clarkston Police Department starting using the "Can You ID me" website, two suspects are positively identified by the public. 

Canyouidme.com is a collaborative website used by police departments across the State of Washington. They post pictures of suspects or people wanted for questioning in hopes that locals can identify them. 

Sergeant Josh Daniel said they posted two different cases to the site last week. Within 24-hours of posting the pictures, they arrested a man the police department had been trying to identify for almost two months.

Does it *really* rain in Seattle '24/7'? Not even close!

Published: Dec 16, 2013 

It was an off hand and innocuous remark in a Tweet from someone back East after I had posted a sunset photo of Mt. Rainier: "Seattle -- I thought it rained 24/7 there?" 

Yes, yes, we get that all the time, right up there with "it rains 9 months of the year there." But it got me to wondering, if not "24/7" -- how often does it really rain in Seattle? 
Believe it or not, the data is actually out there to find out.

Are Storms Getting More Intense Over the Pacific Northwest?

CLIFF MASS WEATHER BLOG
Sunday, december 15, 2013
It is rare to have a week go by without a local media outlet doing a story suggesting that storms are getting worse in our area, with global warming being the suggested cause.  For example, last month KING-5 ran a story saying exactly that (see image), quoting from a representative of  the National Conservancy.
And this is not the only example of claims that Northwest storms are strengthening.

The sad thing is that these claims of increased storms in our region are simply not true,contradicted by the both observations and the peer-reviewed literature.   The "experts" quoted are often representatives of well-meaning, but poorly informed, advocacy groups.

All too often, the media is failing to do their homework in checking out the veracity of these claims.    So let's do the homework for them!  Let's look at key observations to see if there are any trends in storminess in our region.

IDAHO RANKS AMONG HEALTHIEST STATES

Published: Dec 13, 2013

LEWISTON, ID - Idaho ranks 12th among all U.S. states in overall health, that's according to a new national report that highlights the strengths and challenges that all 50 states face.

The Gem State significantly improved from last year when the state ranked 19th. However three challenges Idahoans have are low immunization coverage, limited availability of primary care physicians, and a high frequency of whooping cough. 

Doctor David Petersen of Valley Medical Center family physician, said the problems of low immunization and pertussis infections often go hand-in-hand.

Cold Facts and Snow in SE Washington

Cliff Mass Weather Blog

We are now experiencing our coldest weather since January, with temperatures falling below zero in "favored" spots of eastern Washington and Oregon.  Snow is coming to the Northwest during the next two days, but unfortunately will miss most of Washington.
But first, this morning there was an unusual sight:  a line of clouds down the center of Puget Sound (see picture from the UW web cam facing the Olympics).  The cause?  The cold air! 

THE FRUSTRATING THING FOR SNOW LOVERS is that the low is passing too far offshore to bring snow to most of Washington, perhaps light snow on the WA coast and moderate snow over central and southern Oregon as the low swings eastward south of us.  If the low was one hundred miles to the east and Seattle would be white. Oregon is nearly COMPLETELY covered with snow, with the  exception of Portland and Columbia Gorge.  Northern CA gets snow.   Just not fair.

Snow on the Ground means even colder temperatures...

Although a few valley locations are getting some snow from this weekend system, 
the vast majority of our area will not have any snow on the ground this week.  Why 
does this matter?  With the arrival of the cold arctic air mass tonight, our temperatures
are going to take a nose-dive.  But just how cold depends on a few factors.  One factor
 is clouds.  As we all know by now, clouds at night act as a blanket and keep us warmer

Steve Sarkisian leaving Washington for USC

The coaching carousel is on and spinning and the latest move could have a major impact on WSU and the Pac-12. By  on Dec 2 2013

The Washington Huskies are now in the market for a new head coach with the news that Steve Sarkisian is bolting for USC. The news is fairly surprising on a lot of levels. Mostly, because it wasn't long ago many had Sarkisian on the hot seat and now an Apple Cup victory later he's upgrading to the USC job. Many also thought USC would land a more high-profile candidate like James Franklin or Chris Peterson.
Regardless, the news on Monday will have considerable impact on the Pac-12 as a whole, including WSU. A lot will depend on who Washington hires to replace Sarkisian. Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports reported the initial short list includes...
