Hey Everyone!

 

We are going to have a fun contest this winter. In this thread, submit the most drool worthy models. It could be that CFS megablizzardgeddon, the EURO with a hurricane of doom, a GEM run that is worth its weight in diamonds, or that one model that shows 80ft of snow over Covington, but 48Fº and heavy rain in the hills south of North Bend. I am looking for the one model run that would make a weenie out of anyone in the Pacific Northwest and Lower Mainland.

 

The prize, a PayPal gift that will cover a year of WeatherBell.

 

Rules:

1. The model has to depict the entirety of either A) Puget Sound and Lower BC, B) The Willamette Valley or C) The whole of the Pacific Northwest

- No pinpoint forecasts for Crystal Mountain or Cabin John

2. The model has to be displayed in a graphic; no pink Meteograms

3. The image needs to be either saved on a share site like imgur.com or uploaded to your post.

 

 

The ten most liked posts will be made into a poll on March 2nd and the winner will be determined by a vote of the community.

 

To kick this contest off, here is a some fantasy snow that Timmy shared with the Swamp getting 2 inches of snow.

CFS should be in its own category. It's always going to show way more ridiculous stuff than the GFS/CMC/Euro.

iFred please delete this post. I know it wasn't your attention but nobody likes me here. I'm not going to get any likes on this photo. It's just embarrassing me, thanks.


I like you, man. It's just a photo.

Day 10 ECMWF iceboxes much of the NH, with some of the deepest negative anomalies right over the PNW. Those two breakers also constructively interfere to deliver a solid blow to the PV in the long range.
