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.

You really do have issues, not looking for an argument here, but d**n dude, I do not live there, nice job reading way too much in to what I said, take a xanax or something... settle the **** down!!
I am not reading anything into what you said. I said after 50 inches of snow this month... I am cheering for this one to go south. And you launched into some attack on me based on income and my yuppie neighbors and cliques. Which was of course unnecessary and completely off topic... but seems to be the main undercurrent and root source of your issues with me since it always comes up. I sense this from a few others as well.
So... I am going to tell you a little bit more about me in an effort to build a bridge.
We left Minnesota with $1,000. We do not come from wealthy families. My father-in-law was a plumber and my dad was a public school teacher. My wife paid for her entire education... and then her masters degree. When we got married we had well over $100,000 in student debt and $1,000 in the bank. And moved into a small apartment in a really bad area of downtown San Diego so my wife could be a nurse at Balboa Naval Hospital. We saved enough money to buy a tract home in a nicer suburb of San Diego and got really lucky with the San Diego real estate market. We used that equity to buy 12 acres of land in northern San Diego County and built a home there. We got lucky again and it went up in value and we used that equity to buy the lot in North Bend where we live now. We bought the smallest and cheapest lot in our development and still barely made it work. But they say its best to be the cheapest house in a nice neighborhood as opposed to the opposite. We contracted to have our home built but we spent over a year doing everything we could to keep costs down. And we still have the most basic home possible. But we did it. The lansdscaping and gardens have been a 15-year labor of love for my wife. We have no gardeners or any other help. We have done it all ourselves. I drive a old Honda Accord that is probably worth $10K. We bought a boat for $15K. My sons both drive cars under $10K and pay for them themselves with their own money they earn working. We are actually looked down upon by some of our neighbors for our "crappy" cars parked in the driveway. And we still do not have much savings other than our 401Ks through our employers... and money is a constant stress. Our vacations involve stopping at Costco first and buying all of our food there. Or they are work-related for my wife and paid for by someone else.
It does not feel real good to be labeled as some wealthy yuppie who had everything handed to him and does not relate to the common folk. Its not accurate. I am very common... and feel way more comfortable in a local bar and grill than in some overpriced restaurant in Bellevue or Seattle.
I guess knowing more about a person is probably better than making false assumptions.

I know we are like Leonardo DiCaprio on one of his yachts, waiting for the newest and freshest models to come out, but I just wanted to say Hi!
I'm new to this forum.
Studied meteorology at UW for two years before making a huge pivot and deciding to get into Law. Got my JD at Gonzaga Law.
Obsessed with weather, born and raised in Issaquah, college in Seattle, law school in Spokane, and now I live in downtown Bellevue.
When I was in middle school I job shadowed Jeff Renner on King 5 News. I was so d**n excited and no one else in my class knew who he was. haha
Anyway - look forward to all the posts and throwing my thoughts in occasionally.
Just wanted to say HI!

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.

Speaking of high water.... for the past 4 Falls I have done a canoe challenge ( OK it's
more like a race but BWCAW ((Boundary Waters Wilderness) )regulations don't allow that) from Rainy Lake to Lake Superior. This year the water was exceptionally high along all 233 miles of the border (especially the Pigeon River) and the Grand Portage (all 9 miles of it) was so muddy it was more like a moat than a portage. oh yeah- my group finished in 94 hours and 33 minutes- a record for a group of 8. Figure we got some outdoor people on here so I thought I would I share.

Happy New Year weather nerds! Was a beautiful -12F start to 2019 here this morning.

2.70" yesterday. 2" on sections of the ground that did not have snow after the morning amount.
