Check out Joe's great summary of the weather this weekend. Regions that typically experience strong easterly gap winds #CascadiaWinds should be on the lookout #wawx

Though we're still waiting for anything from Sea-Tac airport (Seattle's official climate stat site), here at the office we've received our first measurable precipitation in 35 days with 0.06" so far this morning. #wawx

Also plotted today's 1200 UTC UIL temperature at 925 hPa (35°C) and had to rescale the y axes to add today's temperature. Max in the full sounding profile was 37.6°F at 973 hPa. Easterly winds still at UIL at 16 UTC.

One way to measure a heatwave is by how much temperatures have exceeded normal conditions. By that metric, the heatwave in the Pacific Northwest has essentially tied, or possible even exceeded, the most severe summer heatwave ever observed anywhere in North America.
