Looks like one more significant cold shot set to arrive on Sunday or Monday.  Could be pretty similar to the windy CAA event we had a couple of days ago.  I still can't believe how wicked that was for so late in the season.

Decent late-season cold east winds could happen over the next few days here in PDX. There are even hints of a very late-season overrunning event later on.

The seasonality of your climate baffles me to no end. It’s almost an enigma given the thermal inertia of the Pacific Ocean and your overall latitude that your winters would wind down so early. I almost wonder if it’s simply a giant fluke that the averages are the way they are right now.

I’m literally in the subtropics, and late-February is still part of the “midwinter” period here..beats the living crap out of December. Even March is “winter”. It will be in the teens next week with multiple shots at snow as we approach the solstice. Lol.

It just seems like the mean trough has a tendency to settle into the Eastern half of continent late in the winter.  It is an interesting question whether that is simply a recent manifestation that could change with little notice.  I do know that February used to average colder than December in Seattle prior to 1940 or so.

The more I think about it, the more I think it could change at some point. At the very least, I don’t see why an early March blast would have any less potential for greatness than an early December blast. There’s much more cold available in the Arctic and Subarctic on March 1st than December 1st, and the Pacific is much colder as well.

So what’s stopping it? Sun angle certainly won’t. Has to be something with the wavetrain.

Well if the euro verified that would be pretty cool too see one last snowfall here, still way too early to get my hopes up though considering that it’s still a few days out. It is pretty interesting that we are looking at the possibility of snow in March though
We will see if anything changes the next few days for the better or not

It looked much snowier than that in my area last weekend and on Wednesday night... and we got nothing.   Gray shading usually means nothing more than some snow in the air... unless its really cold.  Even blue shading is often overstated.

 

I looked at that map and thought it basically will not snow any more at my house unless it changes again.   Of course... I don't want any more snow.    ;)

Oh I definitely think it’s unlikely it will verify and end up snowing I hope things change but it’s more likely that we won’t end up with measurable snow. I can understand you not wanting snow considering the few feet you’ve had

I’m hoping to see some more crazy outflow winds, the other night we had very strong east outflow winds, probably some of the strongest I’ve ever seen will be interesting too see if it can happen again or not, usually where I live being fairly distant from the foothills it’s very uncommon to see such powerful wind here, gusts were about 45 or so.

I would not mind a few inches that melts by noon, provided what I have on the ground now melts. Only about 30 this morning, so I'm thinking I could get well into the 40s today and melt off a couple of inches. Sunday-Wednesday at least probably won't see a great deal of melting, probably none in the shade.

I was thinking yesterday that a scenario where it snows in the morning and then melts by noon might be better than this sunny, dry air scenario for melting the existing snow pack.

A very cold and rather wet February! Keep in mind I've only kept weather records in Battle Ground since 2010...but many areas experienced their coldest February since 1989. So, unless you're over 30, you've never experienced a colder month of February!
 
Here's how it ended up at my house...
 
Average High: 43.7 (6 degrees below average) (coldest ever)
Average Low: 31.2 (3 degrees below average) (coldest ever)
 
Highest Temperature: 54 on the 2nd (coldest maximum temperature for February)
Lowest Temperature: 18.5 on the 7th
 
Peak Wind: East at 33 MPH on the 26th
 
Precip: 6.63" (2" above my average)
Snowfall: 3.25 (barely above average)
 
Cloudy Days: 23, (1 above normal, tied for most ever)
Days with precip: 25 (most ever)
Days with thunder: 0
Temps below 32: 15 (tied with last year for highest ever)
Days with snowfall: 14 (highest ever)
Days with hail: 3 (highest ever)

I lived for a year in the SF Bay Area, and the coldest weather of the winter I experienced there was in *March*. I was in a third-floor apartment and the only time the heat coming up from the units below was insufficient (and thus the only time I ran my own heater) was in March. I thought this was odd, but the long-timers I knew were all "the ocean makes our seasons lag, so OF COURSE the coldest weather happens in late winter, duh". Yet up here well to the north, March is distinctly a spring month. Definitely very odd.

They use to have them here but they all closed down several years ago.

I heard In-Out-Burger is opening up a location in Keizer. They filed for a building permit back in December. It's about time, their the best.

 

Gross.

Pretty impressive.

Haha well this morning pretty much all the models showed no accumulated snowfall for my area for the next 7 days now the gfs fv3 icon and Canadian all show about 1-2 inches over the next 7 days, not counting on anything but winter isn’t totally dead yet it appears

Very cold morning in NE Washington. Cheney down to -9.

 

Looks like -10 at Spokane 17SSW as well.

The crazy thing is there will another bout of very cold lows over there late this weekend/early next week, with another arctic airmass moving in. Could get into some historic territory with what looks to be clear skies and very dry air combined with the unseasonably deep snowpack over most of the east side, even in the lower basins.

Yeah, I'll be curious to see what kind of readings they pull off. Pretty incredible stuff.

Here's a good one - Wilbur, WA never rose above 34 in February. First time they didn't hit 40 in February (records back to 1899!), and they didn't even come close. 

 

Only three other months have stayed under 35 previously, all during January (1929, 1937, 1979).

At least 0 degrees in Spokane this morning.

Only their 3rd on record for March in the last 120+ years, joining 1955 and 1989.

 

Looks like their official low ended up being -1.

Nice. They squeezed past the March 2009 cold wave (2 deg), and 3/1/1993 (3 deg).
