Tropical Tidbits has them both, but no precip products for the Euro.  The two models are pretty similar at 4 am Tuesday.

 

ECMWF:

ecmwf_mslp_uv850_nwus_4.png

 

 

GFS:

gfs_mslp_uv850_nwus_12.png

 

Both now show the low diving south to CA after this point, but there's not much moisture left then.

 

Where does the Euro show the low placement for the monday night / tuesday morning storm?  wanted to compare it to the wrf gfs prediction.

Hey everyone first post here! Really exciting weather and definitely reminded me a bit of 1990 late last night...well sans the wind.

Picked up 6" in Mill Creek. Got lucky with that consistent band through the evening. Hopefully South Snoho gets additional love the next week. Seems it's a bit south on the runs.

Easterly gust to 41mph at PDX is pretty impressive though. Too bad it’s coupled with downslope warming.

The 8 to 10 day period almost looks like a lock to still be cold.  Model agreement is extraordinary on that.  We might even see a stronger cold air intrusion at that time than what we have so far.

Nothing too redeeming about the 18z GFS for us down south. Near-miss after near-miss.

 

I don't see any big warm ups though.

I know Mark Nelsen will sometimes have a separate post for people to report their observations/reports. Perhaps that would a way to do it. One thread for foreacasting, one for observations and reports. But this current way seems to work, so I am guessing most wont want a change.

At this point it's all for naught though if we fail to see a shakeup in where these things track. That block is almost too stuck, so it's just a rinse-wash-repeat cycle. So far it's been great for the Olympia to Everett region and up through the Olympic Peninsula. Pretty disappointing everywhere else.

The 18z GFS s non stop cold and snow for the Puget Sound region.  I'm speechless.

Yeah, crazy.  The coldest date looks to be way out on the 23rd with well below normal temps throughout.  A classic.

Ensemble mean down to -7.5C at PDX by Tuesday night. Any warm up is going to be pretty  brief. Then the mean rises toward average very briefly Thursday ahead of the next system before crashing to -5.5C by the weekend.

I would say through Tuesday morning. I think its going to be pretty "warm" Tuesday. Could even be a little rain... but generally drying out during out into Wednesday.

Showers are definitely trying to organize over PDX... Maybe a consolation prize of something for PDX while we figure out where next storm goes? Still tough luck for YVX however

My apologies for weenieing, really felt we would see at least a little accumulation from this one.


Sorry, that was more of a joke than an actual slam on people who got left out. You haven’t been bad at all and I understand the sentiment.

Redding.

 

Don't flatter yourself, Redding averages 5.5 inches of snow a season. More than we can manage.

I would say through Tuesday morning. I think its going to be pretty "warm" Tuesday. Could even be a little rain... but generally drying out during out into Wednesday.

 

I take it with the exception of the onset of precip, its going to be a bit of a washout and warmup?

At this point it's all for naught though if we fail to see a shakeup in where these things track. That block is almost too stuck, so it's just a rinse-wash-repeat cycle. So far it's been great for the Olympia to Everett region and up through the Olympic Peninsula. Pretty disappointing everywhere else. 

 

I mean, PDX has gotten about 6" of snow so far...not a bad February.

Going to be close for pulling off a sub-freezing high today, it's been sitting around 31F, but places north of here are well above freezing.

Onset?

 

Seems to warm up at the end of the snow event which starts Monday night.   That is a warm front.   ECMWF shows 4 or 5 inches of snow in the Seattle area on Monday night but then low 40s on Tuesday with some lingering precip.    But looks generally dry by afternoon.     And then dry through Wednesday as well.

 

So I would say Sunday - Tuesday morning will be nuts.

Wish we could get a transition event. This area does way better with those.

Hey now, Riverside is still capable of snow every couple of decades. Let's not get too ambitious here.

The 13th/14th period has a chance to trend a lot colder for PDX.

I mean, PDX has gotten about 6" of snow so far...not a bad February.

 

Very unrepresentative of the overall region in NW OR and SW WA. Places even 5 miles west, north, and south of PDX had less than half of their total last night.

 

I had 0.7" with the first event and 1.3" this morning, and I average almost twice what PDX does.

Still a strong chance at at least a top 5 cold February in the PDX airport era.
