EUG's record high for the day is 62 set back in 1996. Going to assume there was about a 25 degree EUG-SEA temp gradient with that one?

 

SEA was 55 that day. The big snow was a bit earlier.

Every run from here on will have different details.  The screaming message is we have a window once again.

 

Hell, just some consistent cold is all I ask for.  Even if we end up in BSF down here during snow events up north, just some enjoyable nights to sit out and enjoy the crisp air a bit more often.

January is beginning to look kind of interesting. Not having a front loaded winter for once probably helps us out now.


It be nice to have a cold January for once. January 2012 was the last memorable January to me. If I recall that event was great for Puget Sound.

That was an amazing event for anyone with any elevation in Western Oregon. I had 21" of snow on 1/17/12 and 32" 15-17th. Then we had 11" of rain in 3 days. Very memorable sequence of events.

And a closeup of the North Sound.  Temp gradients are not believable (I used to live there).  Sure, I-5 is cooler than the water, but can't believe that Mt. Vernon area would be almost than 20 degrees colder than the Anacortes area, and also colder than the Cascades to the East of Mt. Vernon.

2017 was solidly cold at Eugene. Coldest January since at least 1993. 

 

I remember the first few days of the month were nice but I don't remember much else in the middle and end of the month. EUG missed out on the big event on the 10th by about 50 miles. Had a few inches on the 7th...an event that tragically missed a bit to the south.

This is interesting.  I don't buy it, the resolution is probably too low, but something for North Sound people to keep an eye on.  This is precip in inches that falls as snow.  This would mean Whatcom County and Bellingham would be buried IF it verified.

Yeah it was very cold onshore flow down here and then an atmospheric river followed. The flooding on the small streams of the Central Willamette Valley was pretty severe. Turner, Albany, and parts of Salem had some pretty severe flooding. 

 

PDX had 2" of snow with that event when their flow briefly went offshore. Salem and Eugene had about 1" of wet snow. Silverton had about 2", but by the time you got up to 500' there was about 6" and pretty much everyone above that got a foot or more.

Goodbye 2018!

I'll remember you for the late season modified Arctic Blast that brought not 1, not 2 but 3 separate snow events for my area.

I'll also remember the late spring to summer drought and the heatwaves that came.

The year ended on a boring note but onto 2019! Here's to a snowy and cold rest of the winter and another warm/hot late spring and summer!

2017 was solidly cold at Eugene. Coldest January since at least 1993. 

 

2013 was actually the coldest January of this century (so far) for many places around Puget Sound.  It was due to a short lived very minor shot of Arctic air followed by a long period of ridging / fake cold.  2017 was real close though.

Yeah, a clutch performance by PDX in getting down to 31 at the last hour. 2018-19 now joins 1953-54 in being the only other winter (besides 66-67) to not have a <31 temp thru December 31. Some better company there.
