The next few days were some of the best of my life as I lived in the north/central Willamette valley in the cold air dam that was all snow except for about 12 hrs of freezing rain, then back to snow for days...amazing.

 

My heart breaks for the folks down here that missed out by 30 miles.

458 PM PST THU DEC 18 2008...CORRECTED TYPO

...MAJOR WINTER STORM SHOULD IMPACT WESTERN WASHINGTON FROM LATE
SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY...

AFTER THE CURRENT ROUND OF SNOW SHOWERS IS GONE...THE NEXT WEATHER
SYSTEM TO IMPACT WESTERN WASHINGTON WILL ARRIVE ON THE COAST ON
SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND SPREAD INLAND ON SATURDAY NIGHT. THIS
SYSTEM WILL CONTAIN A LOT OF MOISTURE AND SHOULD BRING A WIDE
VARIETY OF WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS TO ALL OF WESTERN WASHINGTON.

PERHAPS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT IMPACT WILL BE POTENTIALLY
DESTRUCTIVE WINDS IN THE CASCADES AND THE EAST PUGET SOUND
LOWLANDS. SEE THE HIGH WIND WATCH ISSUED BY THIS OFFICE.

THIS SYSTEM WILL CONTAIN A LOT OF MOISTURE AS IT SPREADS OVER THE
COLD AIR MASS IN PLACE. PRECIPITATION SHOULD FIRST START IN THE
FORM OF SNOW AS IT SPREADS INLAND. HEAVIEST SNOW AMOUNTS SHOULD
TAKE PLACE ALONG THE CENTRAL COAST...IN THE LOWER CHEHALIS
VALLEY...OVER THE KITSAP PENINSULA AND THE SOUTHWEST INTERIOR.
SNOWFALL TOTALS COULD EXCEED 6 INCHES FOR MANY LOCATIONS WITH A
FEW LOCATIONS REACHING A FOOT IN A FEW PLACES. STRONG EAST WINDS
COULD THEN CAUSE BLOWING AND DRIFTING OF SNOW.

ELSEWHERE...INCLUDING THE SEATTLE-TACOMA-EVERETT CORRIDOR...SNOW
ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED BUT AMOUNTS WILL BE LESS.

LATER SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING...A LAYER OF WARM AIR
ALOFT WILL OVERSPREAD SUB-FREEZING AIR AT THE SURFACE. THIS COULD
CAUSE SNOW TO MIX WITH OR CHANGE TO SLEET AND FREEZING
RAIN...MAINLY SOUTH OF A LINE FROM OCEAN SHORES TO EVERETT. IF
MORE PRECIPITATION FALLS IN THE FORM OF FREEZING RAIN AS OPPOSED
TO SNOW...THEN SIGNIFICANT ICING IN EXCESS OF ONE-QUARTER INCH
WOULD BE POSSIBLE IN THESE AREAS. ICE ACCUMULATIONS OF THIS
MAGNITUDE CAN CAUSE POWER LINES TO SNAP...BRING DOWN LARGE TREE
BRANCHES... AND CAUSE WIDESPREAD TRAVEL DISRUPTIONS.

TEMPERATURES ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON ARE FORECAST TO RISE A LITTLE
ABOVE FREEZING FOR MOST OF THE WESTERN WASHINGTON LOWLANDS...SO
THE THREAT OF FREEZING RAIN WOULD END AT THAT TIME.

THIS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE A SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM FOR MUCH
OF WESTERN WASHINGTON. MANY OF THE EXACT DETAILS REMAIN
UNCERTAIN...SO CHECK BACK FOR THE LATEST FORECASTS...WATCHES AND
WARNINGS AS THE DETAILS OF THIS EVENT BECOME MORE SOLID.
REGARDLESS OF THE DETAILS...BE PREPARED FOR WINTER WEATHER AND
SIGNIFICANT WEATHER-RELATED DISRUPTIONS THIS WEEKEND STARTING
SATURDAY AFTERNOON.

28 years ago today it was getting pretty chilly.

 

I was in 4th grade and we had a Christmas concert at school that night, right before going into winter break. The snow started falling in the middle of the concert. I still remember looking out the windows and seeing the swirling flakes in the streetlight, and thinking how perfect it was.


Low. Solar.

When I was 6 and had just moved to Oregon, that event made me think it would happen every year and was a normal occurrence.  I became disappointed in the subsequent years.  :lol:

Funny. I was drumming in an Xmas concert tonight as well. The drive home was a little dicey.

I am interested in how they will articulate the AFD nowadays when a major Arctic air intrusion is about to take place. Compare the two.

I remember this. It was before I became a weather enthusiast. Do you have the Seattle AFD for the November 2010 event?

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SEATTLE WA
758 AM PST THU DEC 25 2008
EAST PUGET SOUND LOWLANDS-EVERETT AND VICINITY-
SEATTLE/BREMERTON AREA-
758 AM PST THU DEC 25 2008

...WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 PM PST THIS AFTERNOON...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SEATTLE HAS ISSUED A WINTER STORM
WARNING FOR WESTERN SNOHOMISH COUNTY...NORTH SEATTLE...AND THE
NORTH PART OF THE EAST PUGET SOUND LOWLANDS NORTH OF BELLEVUE...WHICH IS
IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 PM PST THIS AFTERNOON. THE WINTER WEATHER
ADVISORY IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT.

A PERSISTENT BAND OF SNOW SHOWERS WILL AFFECT THE NORTH PUGET
SOUND AREA THROUGH ABOUT 1 PM TODAY. AN ADDITIONAL 3 TO 5 INCHES
OF WET SNOW CAN BE EXPECTED IN THIS AREA. THE WARNING AREA EXTENDS
FROM ABOUT ARLINGTON SOUTHWARD TO NORTH SEATTLE...INCLUDING
EVERETT...AND EASTWARD TO THE CASCADES...INCLUDING THE NORTH
BELLEVUE TO REDMOND AREA...UP THROUGH SNOHOMISH AND BACK TO
ARLINGTON.

ABOUT 2 INCHES OF WET SNOW HAD FALLEN IN THE BOTHELL TO LAKE CITY
CORRIDOR AS OF 7 AM. THERE WILL BE LULLS IN THE SNOW SHOWERS AS THE
INDIVIDUAL SNOW BANDS WEAKEN AND ARE THEN REPLACED WITH A NEW BAND
OF SHOWERS. THE SNOW IS EXPECTED TO TAPER OFF AFTER 1 PM.

SNOW SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE AT TIMES THE REST OF TODAY...BUT ARE
NOT EXPECTED TO BE AS INTENSE OR PERSISTENT. RAIN MAY BRIEFLY MIX
WITH SOME OF THE SHOWERS...BUT THE HEAVIER SHOWERS WILL BE ALL SNOW.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

THE HEAVY WET SNOW FALLING ON ALREADY SLOWLY MELTING SNOW WILL
MAKE SLUSHY MIX THAT CAN BE ESPECIALLY HAZARDOUS FOR DRIVERS. THIS
IS A RECIPE FOR HYDROPLANING EVEN FOR MORE SNOW CAPABLE VEHICLES
IF YOU ARE DRIVING TOO FAST. WATER WILL TEND TO ACCUMULATE IN
RUTS ALREADY CARVED OUT BY PREVIOUS DRIVERS...SO UP TO TWO INCHES
OF STANDING WATER CAN MAKE HYDROPLANING MUCH MORE LIKELY. DRIVE
SLOWER AND MORE CAUTIOUSLY...AND BE PATIENT WITH DRIVERS OF LESS
CAPABLE VEHICLES.

IN ADDITION...THE WET SNOW WILL ADD MORE WEIGHT TO LARGE AMOUNTS
OF SNOW THAT HAVE ALREADY ACCUMULATED ON ROOFS. FLAT ROOF
ESPECIALLY MAY BE AT RISK TO SUFFER DAMAGE FROM THE WEIGHT OF
HEAVY DENSE SNOW.

It was nice but it was certainly a long ways from the 20th century's best events. Which were generally a long ways from the 19th century's best. And on it goes. We won't be approaching 1861-62 or 1892-93 any time soon, there's really no question about that. 1915-16, 1949-50, or 1968-69 are about equally unlikely at this point.

CONTINUE TO MELT THE SNOW. THE RAIN COMBINED WITH MELTING LOW
ELEVATION SNOW MAY RESULT IN SOME URBAN OR SMALL STREAM
FLOODING...PARTICULARLY IN POORLY DRAINED LOW LYING AREAS.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

RESIDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO CLEAR ANY BLOCKAGES OF STORMS DRAINS
BEFORE FLOODING PROBLEMS OCCUR.

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM RAIN AND SNOW MELT WILL CAUSE PONDING OF WATER
ON HIGHWAYS...STREETS AND UNDERPASSES. IT WILL ALSO CAUSE INCREASED
FLOWS IN SMALL STREAMS.

It was pretty amazing up here with both duration and snowfall as well as temps...no so much down there?

 

Temps weren't as exciting down here. I think SLE hit 14 and EUG hit 10 on 12/16/08, but aside from that first cold shot temps, especially low temps were especially underwhelming. PDX never got below 20. 

 

There was quite a bit of snow Salem north, If you count Dec 14-25th as one sort of big event, it was the best continuous stretch for snow of my lifetime in the valley. Though in the Salem area 1992-93 and 2016-17 were probably better overall winters.

I prefer to refer to it as a synaptic tree-killing serotonin drought.
