Light snow falling again this evening on the Southern Oregon coast at Coos Bay. 

 

18z EURO looked good. Very encouraging. Nice to see this snow band go over the valley. Seems to be expanding as it moves north and west. 

 

South wind is completely dead in the valley now and the flow is offshore down to EUG. DP's already into the teens in the PDX metro area. If the winds slack off anywhere tonight there could be some very cold lows.

Is it moving N towards Washington County? I really want them to get some snow.

Pretty rare to see snow on each day of the 7-day forecast.

Even rarer to see a WSW extend over three days.

Northern areas certainly gain some ground on this one:

 

nam3km_asnow_nwus_57.png

One thing I don't get is why there is a persistent purple line across the lowlands east of cascades on all of these storms. And this is not Kuchera, this 10:1 ratios! I think this might be a really unprecedent amount of snow for some of these valleys, like surpassing late 1800's for puget sound in terms of rareness.

I think another 2" for most of PDX will happen tonight. Deformation band is consolidating north of Portland and goes East all the way to Pendleton Radar technicians. Second lobe of surface low is forming over SE Oregon and will rotate that band with strength over Oregon if it follows the projected path towards Pullman...

Someday you will be an ADULT and not care about such silly, trivial things as snow and weather. Because you will know what REAL PROBLEMS are. I say this as one of the couple dozen grown a** adults who spends an inordinate amount of time on this forum obsessing over snow and other kinds of weather, with zero sense of irony whatsoever. ;)

Its all fun and games until you are sweating it out in a school with no air conditioning in early July in the middle of another hot summer.    ;)

 

Experiencing lots of snow is fine... but it does start to become seriously disruptive when it goes on and on.   Nothing you can do about it of course.   But it does start to make it more stressful and you look forward to when life can return to normal.   As Matt can tell you from January 2017!

Same as before. It's currently 29F here with a 10F dewpoint, the low is forming out of a pocket of very cold upper level air, and this event begins within 24 hours from now. Rain is the least of our concerns, if we get missed tomorrow it will because it tracked too far north or south of us and we missed the heavy narrow band of precip. This is not an atmosphere that produces rain in this area:

I agree, was just reading what the model said. According to spot wx much of the city only gets 8.5 cm from that one. Looking at the qpf I would expect higher. What are your thoughts?

Sorry about that. I was actually really happy with the ECMWF scenario of few days ago that took all the activity south from Sunday-Wednesday and allowed the possibility of schools being opened up here.

The 0z GFS looks mostly on board now, still seems a bit south of the other models but it might not have much of an impact for Victoria. This isn't an easy one to predict, I expect there will be a narrow band capable of producing upwards of 20cm somewhere. The 5-10cm range is probably a safe bet for here, but far from certain.

Downslope. Air is too dry. No go.

Needs to start snowing in Longview, very possible as long as there is enough north or northwest wind at various elevations to provide enough lift to overcome the downslope effects. Happened with the much weaker zone of the first system a week ago.

I dunno, cold's just unpleasant without some sort of wintry precipitation to spice things up. It's a week of 34 degree rain.

If the 12z EURO is correct, we'll have another good chance of snow here in PDX Metro starting in about a week. Winter isn't over yet.

I dunno, cold's just unpleasant without some sort of wintry precipitation to spice things up. It's a week of 34 degree rain.


It’ll be warmer than that at times.

Sub 45 degree rain, then. That might just be worse.

3 weeks ago we would have killed for an opportunity like the Sunday-Wednesday period for NW Oregon...Snow levels near Sea Level again Tuesday night.

The 0z GFS looks mostly on board now, still seems a bit south of the other models but it might not have much of an impact for Victoria. This isn't an easy one to predict, I expect there will be a narrow band capable of producing upwards of 20cm somewhere. The 5-10cm range is probably a safe bet for here, but far from certain.

I agree. But I do want the euro on board tonight. The past couple of events a bunch of models were showing gorgeous eye candy up until the day of the storm and nothing really happened (meanwhile the euro showed much more realistic totals)

Perhaps I should have clarified- cold that isn't historic (or below 25 degrees) is just unpleasant. It's like nothing worthwhile is happening.

Can’t you just let Bryant just have a LITTLE, Tim?

You should fire up the boat and go waterskiing. Just be sure to steer clear of any icing...

Got the family in the truck and headed to the lake house (Lake Goodwin in Stanwood) to check things out and then a stop at the store on the way back (was a ghost town, perfect time to shop) Our lake house faces the north, there was snow piled up on the sliding glass door! And my boat is still hibernating. Saw some vehicle casualties on the drive to the lake as well.

00Z GFS does not show a crippling snowstorm for Seattle on Monday night into Tuesday. Cliff Mass is saying this now. There is snow... but the system tomorrow night looks more snowy.

It shows 18hrs of steady snow starting monday night.
