Was just about to make the topic, thanks. Let's see if the south valley can break their pathetic, 28 year streak without a White Christmas. Hell, any appreciable cold, even with BSF, would be interesting at this point.

28 years? That doesn’t seem right.

In Silverton we had a solid dusting of about 1/2" of snow on Christmas 2007 and about 6-8" on the ground in 2008.... For Eugene though he is right.

Seems like there had to be a pattern that left them with snow on the ground on Christmas over the last 28 years. Maybe not.

Nah, 1990 was their last one.

 

Snow isn't that common in Eugene on any given day though, so I'm not sure why it's a big shock.

I guess maybe because the last decade hasn’t exactly been a snow drought for the south valley. At least no more so than for any other area. They have had some decent events. I guess none happened to line up around Christmas.

Sure, but if you took any  other random day on the calendar in mid-winter, I'm not sure a 28 year snow drought would really stand out all that much, but with it being Christmas Day it just feels like a bigger deal.

 

As one example off the top of my head, I''m pretty certain that January 22 hasn't had any measurable snowfall or snow on the ground since 1982 here, probably longer for Eugene. There are a number of other days like that too.

Eugene averages 5" of snow a year.

 

Yes and their median is 0". Snowless winters are common there and the average is beefed up by the big outlier years.

Not much accumulated. Roads are still wet, must be 33 degrees out there. But about 0.20" on grass and a bit less on cars.

Since 1:00 it has gotten much thicker out there and now a road accumulation. I'll have to take another measurement sometime later.

 

NWS thought the heaviest would be before midnight. Not here!

06z GFS shows cold onshore flow and a great mountain snow pattern setting up after day 10.

Stormy for the lowlands as well with multiple sub-990mb lows heading into south/central BC.

Something to look forward to hopefully.

There is at least 3+ inches since my last pictures. It dipped into the upper 20's and started snowing again. I will take more shots pretty soon.

 

For my first measurable snow this is actually a pretty good one.

I like the 12z GFS.

The ridge over the middle of the country is much weaker which allows the trough offshore to move in much sooner and usher in the stormy, cool onshore flow pattern. I'll chalk it up as a W.

I sure hope this dry trend don't last all week because we need some real storms for the mountains in a bad way. There is the least amount of snow over here in the okanogan highlands then I've seen in 7 years. All the rain that parts of Washington got really did nothing for us as most of the rain just went back in the ocean.

We come from the land of the ice and snow.

Finally got a nice clearing on my big piece of land which is about 3 miles north of my cabin property. Alot of work to do alone!!! Pretty amazing how much more it snows on this property compared to my cabin. Last year max depth was about 40 inches at cabin on march 1 and at this property there was 57 and elevation is only 300 feet more here. I chose this spot also because it's a north facing slope and that is a huge factor for keeping snow on the trees and ground. Yes I'm a huge snow freak lol.

Had a very cool happen lastnight as i was leaving my property. A bull moose walked out of the woods about 30 yards in front of my truck!! I've seen every animal there is to see in the woods but nothing compares to a moose. There so big it almost looks out of place. I had a horse that was 18.5 hands tall and this moose was bigger. Amazing animal.

I sure hope this dry trend don't last all week because we need some real storms for the mountains in a bad way. There is the least amount of snow over here in the okanogan highlands then I've seen in 7 years. All the rain that parts of Washington got really did nothing for us as most of the rain just went back in the ocean.

 

 

The 12Z ECMWF shows a warm conveyor belt of rain approaching the coast by next Sunday afternoon just like the 00Z run... basically dry for the next 8 days.   

 

Looks like the trough will actually move through by next Monday which should lower snow levels again.

Finally got a nice clearing on my big piece of land which is about 3 miles north of my cabin property. Alot of work to do alone!!! Pretty amazing how much more it snows on this property compared to my cabin. Last year max depth was about 40 inches at cabin on march 1 and at this property there was 57 and elevation is only 300 feet more here. I chose this spot also because it's a north facing slope and that is a huge factor for keeping snow on the trees and ground. Yes I'm a huge snow freak lol.

Amazing views! Your properties are the envy of every snow freak on this forum!

Just gets me thinking even though my wife would never live out there. How much is the land out there? She is into tiny houses currently, perhaps I meet her halfway. She get a tiny house and I place it here!

Looks like the 850's are pretty normal at day 10 with another storm heading our way.  Normal December weather, in other words.  High pressure is off to the east, so it doesn't look like it would split the next system, and with high pressure to the south, it looks like it would be heading our way.

Spiders apparently are still surviving. How, I don't know. I just squished two on the window sill, it would be nice if I saw more centipedes but please there is a reason it's December now! Spiders should be extinct!

I followed the cold front up the mountain yesterday. I started in Sandy around 5 when it was starting to really pour and began heading east on highway 26. Just after Sandy there was already a little snow in the rain. The mix of snow and rain kept up until I got to welches and the precip rate dropped and no snow was in the rain anymore. Nothing changed until I got up to silent rock and hit some decently heavy snow. The heavy snow kept going into government camp but the roads remained just slushy and no chains were needed. The snow stopped pretty quickly and they only picked up an inch or two up around 4000'. No more fell overnight either so another disappointer has happened.

Given the high precip rates as that front passed the metro area I would have expected much better than 1-2 inches at 4000ft. Pretty lame. Seems like things just dried out very fast once it started to actually cool down. 

 

The sunset rest area on 26 @ 1400ft in the coast range was at 32-34F last night but there was very little moisture left.

It seemed like the front died once it hit the cascades.

We’re in Government Camp right now. It seems pretty snowy.
