Just got a loud crack of thunder and some pretty heavy, pea sized hail for about 10 minutes here in downtown Seattle. Been quite a while since I've seen lightning within the city limits!

Just got home and it's snowing pretty good.

Rain in the valley turned to snow about half way up my hill. Just a trace so far.

Light snow and 36 at BLI on the 7:53 update. 

 

5 month snow season up there, after the 2" to 4" that fell around town in early November.

I thought it was, April showers bring May showers, which bring June showers til the 4th of July.

That's just a more wordy version of it.

Absolutely dumping snow in North Bend.   My son just got home and said it was a white out down there... could not see the road and it was snowing incredibly hard.   Its actually not snowing as hard up here yet.    Heaviest snow he said he has seen down there since he started driving last year.

Lol. Will probably run more like a hybrid this time.

do you have to pedal backwards and watch everything slide away instead of going forwards?  The fringes of the front arrived here in the valley part of OR. 0.35 of rain out of it and temps in low 40s.

At least 3 inches of snow here... maybe a little more. Snow should be ending very soon but its been coming down hard for the last 30 minutes with barely anything on the radar.

I believe the biggest snowfalls of the year here happened on Christmas morning and Easter night. Strange year.

So April 7 has been a pretty interesting weather day recently.

 

First we had the record smashing heat in 2016 with the 85 at PDX and 89 at Kelso.

 

Then a historic spring windstorm in 2017 with the 55-60mph winds in the Portland area and northern Willamette Valley.

 

Now it's looking like lightning may strike twice and another major storm could be on the way this week on the 7th. Models all develop a pretty powerful system with a strong jet streak there off the OR coast. Pretty good bet that puppy produces some damaging wind and/or impressive rain totals somewhere.

Ya. I've been following that potential since Wednesday night/Thursday. It's just real nice to have something to watch on the models and I have modest confidence on this right now that somewhere between Bellingham and Red Bluff sees gusts at/above 50mph.

Just a dusting overnight here. Echoes increasing right now so maybe a little more in the next couple hours.

Low of 29.

It was 32 when the snow and graupel was falling... went up to 33 when it stopped and 34 now.

 

The roads are a mess... schools are 2 hours late.   This has to be the most dense 3 inches of snow I have ever seen.   Its really slick underneath as well and now its even heavier than last night because its above freezing.   Just tried to drive out and was spinning away on a flat stretch which never happens with 3 inches of regular snow.

Yeah must be because of the grapuel. Sounds like a mess...

 

Some more snow falling here now, about a 1/3" or so on the ground. Just straight snow and 31 degrees so I don't anticipate any issues on the roads.

For those that like spring snow... Really impressive late season snow storm about to hit all of Montana.

 

 

 

 

 

My son was just back there again this past weekend for another tour of MSU and to meet up with various professors and directors.  Sounds like the weather was pretty nice when he got there, cold cloudy and windy Friday, then Saturday they moved over to the Flint Creek valley for his great grandmother's 97th birthday party, and the temp was down to 11. Then I think it warmed up to freezing on Sunday when he flew home....All I could say was....."that is but a small taste of what you will experience the next 4 years....."

 

Looks like he is all set to go there, this trip finalized his decision.  He will be back in late June for freshman orientation, and then we will move him out there in mid-August as an Environmental Engineering major/bass drummer in the marching band

 

 

Back to the topic of weather, I guess this winter has been a bad one on the family ranch, as they have lost a lot of calves.  My wife's uncle and cousin have been having to watch the herd pretty much around the clock and as soon as a calf is born, scoop it up and get it into a barn to keep it warm.  The ranch is not included in the pictures you attached, hopefully this means the storm is passing to the east of them....still sucks for the ranchers who will get hit, as they are all dealing with the same stuff my wife's family is....

Exciting that he has made his final decision, he's going to love it here! Bass drummer in the marching band should also be really fun! Hopefully you will be able to make plenty of trips out this way to experience the great seasons we have here. Some will joke that we only have two seasons here, winter and construction season but summer is really quite beautiful and fall, albeit short is stunning here.

 

We were down in Utah all last week where it was in the 60's. Drove back up to Bozeman on Saturday and it was in the 20's with some fresh snow on the ground. It's been a wild fall/winter and now spring out this way with all sorts of snow and cold records falling. Definitely feel for the ranchers out there. Woke up to a fresh 6" of snowfall this morning and it's still snowing and forecasted to continue throughout the day. Welcome to spring in Bozeman! 


Cold Season 2018/19:

Total snowfall: 41.0"
Highest daily snowfall: 7.0"

Highest snow depth: 8.0"

Snoqualmie Pass has been closed for hours for snow removal.

 

Snoqualmie Summit received 15 inches of snow at the base overnight.    A base of 219 inches now at Alpental.  

 

Rivers are going to be roaring all summer up here.   Looks like the dead of winter up there.   Facebook just reminded me that two years ago today my son was skiing in shorts and a t-shirt up there in 70-degree sunshine and they were about to close for the season.

Rain/Snow mix this morning in West Salem. Was down to 33f earlier with clear skies. 35f when I left for work at 8am.

 

I miss the 75f in Phoenix
