Portland may get more snow on this run... but Seattle gets hit hard in the first event just 48 hours away.   A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.   ;)

 

Can you post the Euro temp plots if they're out?

Victoria is in a historic snow drought. They are due

Crazy, I would have thought Feb 2016 would have done it, but YYJ must have been drier than here. It's been a long time since we've had more than 6" in a day, probably going back to Feb 2011. Probably won't happen this time though, even if we get 8" it will be spread between 2 days.

This thing is getting serious enough we may start to see some ice develop on some fairly good sized lakes this weekend when the next batch of cold settles in.  This is totally awesome!

Looking at things in a broad sense the ECMWF and GFS both still forecast the PNA and EPO to be deeply tanked at day 10 according the Weatherbell site. With that combo it will be impossible to not be cold to some extent. Any significant warmup would probably be due to a block reconfiguration and brief.

This event is looking increasingly likely to be historic in a number of ways for the month of February.



Ensembles mean i saw earlier this afternoon showed KSEA not crossing -5C (barely) until the 22nd. Even then, still cold.

For a second I thought you meant not dropping below -5C until the 22nd and I was confused. That's crazy!

Don't worry, Fred already sounded that alarm to The Stranger.
