I feel we will get cold again around the10-15th of march. Sure looks like that might happen.

I’m pretty confident that we will see accumulating snow in March!

C-zone makes an appearance in the Central Puget Sound when it’s too warm for anything but rain. What a s**t show this winter has been.

Later this week still looks chilly too. Just not much moisture to work with.

The CZ dropped the temp 9 degrees on Sunday, so I wouldn't count on the models temperatures right now.

ICON also shows the band pushing across the sound as rain.

 

We could easily lose several degrees for Friday morning on the ICON and other models as we push closer to the event. 

 

If I remember right the CZ that hit one year ago today totally broke the forecast for the day of upper 30s with an AM mix to rain to all snow with a high of 35 or 36.

We do! I love that tree even though the roots have destroyed our driveway and I get sliced by it if I don’t keep it trimmed up above mower riding level. It’s awesome!

Will be interesting to see how long SEA can keep its sub-50 streak going. It's at 19 days and looks like it should continue for at least another 5-6 days.

Pretty impressive. I saw K Falls broke a record from the 1962 cold wave. That one is the late season standard up here with back to back single digit lows.

Yeah..no. You would have been roasting under a giant ridge right now had the PV remained in its dominant/baratropic state, like January.

The lack of any spatially synchronized WHEM equatorward wave driving this winter stuck out like a sore thumb, and that wasn’t going to change due some mysterious “Niña climo”. Any suggestions to the contrary are simply not based in reality.

 

Far too much reliance on anal logs.

 

A warm ridge would have been more "climo" than what we just witnessed.

I believe it may be pretty close here tomorrow night to possible see some snow from a combination of heavy precip rates and upslope effect from the olympics. I have experienced many of these borderline situations over here and have had heavy snow in the past with the same 850mb temps as tomorrow night. The wind stays se for a long time and this will be key. Many of the largest snowfalls I've had here were never forecasted believe it or not. The snow level for the Olympics is between 1500 and 2000 ft. Going to be close.

That is good and important to know up here. There is a house nearby with one, and it is pretty big so I assumed it can handle the snow.

 

How fast do they grow?

Looks like our area weather God agrees...What is funny is I did not have to winterize my home until last week...Almost made it through the entire winter without having to cover the outdoor faucets. A pretty pathetic winter overall, but it ended well.

Your kidding just drove home in rain

Saw on a traffic cam. Looked very wet and sloppy but it still counts as snow.

Seems to me like the thresholds are met, 925 freezing, 850 -5c

Yeah it was raining at my house when I said that so I just assumed it would be nothing but rain tonight. Maybe some spots under the CZ will get lucky.
