The state of the snow now 4 days after it fell.
I've never seen such staying power in our snow with sunny days as well! 2008 it stuck around a long time but it was pretty much socked in the entire time.
Vancouver Lake is frozen, I've never seen that before and the trees are still coated amazingly well.
The one picture of the road looks like it's from the mid-west, not SW Washington.
High of 33.6 today after a low of 9.5.

Could you write your own morning discussion...just for us? And not mention any change over to rain or any of that stuff! Just kidding, you guys do a great job, we are just all weenies.
Well, I don't have access to everything that I'd like to look at.
With that said, tonight will be tricky with the strong offshore flow. I've seen it go both ways. In one case in 2014 I believe, models showed drying and no precip. We got 2-3 inches from that in Seattle. In other cases, the dry air won. I'll see later. I'm a little concerned that outflow from the Fraser will keep the area NE of Bellingham in the cold for the foreseeable future. I'm not sure about the change to a mix or rain up there Except maybe near the water and south of the hills.
Concerning the longer term...Monday is looking potentially interesting - but the moisture leaves before the cold air comes down. Time will tell. But it is looking cold. With the very cold air over western Canada and Alaska and the high latitude block along 150W, combined with some undercutting of the flow along 40N -W Wa will be in the middle of the battle zone. I really don't know the details on how the models are handling tropical moisture and convection at this time (model changes are happening at a fast pace), but very cold air nearby and moisture from the south could make things quite interesting over the next couple of weeks. The end of next week looks interesting.
Models in this pattern tend to be quite unstable. Model riding is dangerous. It will be difficult to get things right even in the short term.

Awesome sunset tonight....

Thought I'd share a couple more pictures I took last night. This is from a Section 8 housing project @ NE 45th & Broadway. Its a 14 story building that creates a vortex when hit by east winds. Some pretty crazy drifting as a result, on the east side of the building:

Simply stunning images from Whatcom Co, Scott Sistek did a great write up and lots of images!

Looks like the snow is finally done here, the outflow winds are kicking in a bit more and it's cooled down a little. I estimate there's been a little over 7" since it began Sunday night. A few more pictures from this morning:

I'm trying to get my head around the last time Portland had 1) multiple sunny days and 2) this much snow on the ground.
Certainly not in my 20+ years watching the weather. The last time that even sticks out as a possibility is late Jan/early Feb 1956.

Took my wife for an ultrasound this morning. We are having a girl, due in May.
Thanks! She was loving it!!! First real snow that we could actually make a snowman with since she has been alive (she's going on 3 in Feb.

Ended up with a max of 34F and sunny, though it was a bit warmer closer to the water, tonight it's completely clear but surprsingly calm. I took a few pictures on the walk in to work today and some more at lunch:

Looking north toward Shawnigan:
Looking northeast toward UVic/Gordon Head:
Looking southeast toward Oak Bay/Seattle:

About 6-8" overnight. Blowing good right now. Drifting as fast as you can dig it out.

FINALLY!!! Good God it is so hard to get it to snow here. Really coming down good and quickly accumulating now. Winds have shifted to NW on the East Hill of Kent so the colder air is finally going to be able to work its way in.
I've been pacing like a caged animal for the last hour waiting for this to happen.
