  1. Below freezing streak for my PWS has ended. Wednesday evening through Monday at noonish, impressive! Lowest temp was 18.8°F on Saturday morning. Measured 12 - 17” of snow on ground today, variable because of wind and compaction. Minor freezing rain accumulation on branches, it was quickly alternating between snow, sleet and freezing rain for hours this AM. Once I finished shoveling my driveway I watched a bobcat walk up the cleared driveway, it was incredible! He’s been hanging out around house for a couple hours now.

  2. Whining always wins. About 3 inches fell overnight, with light-to-moderate snow currently. Gonna be a bit muted in in my celebration, though, 'cause I feel for you guys down south. Ice is THE WORST winter weather. And the scariest. Stay safe.

  4. This will be remembered by pretty much everyone from Salem to Bellingham. Pretty rare to be able to say that honestly. Salem: Huge ice storm Portland: Huge snow and ice storm Chehalis to Olympia: Two huge snowstorms that blended together. Tacoma to Everett: Huge snowstorm. Seattle's snowiest day in 52 years. Bellingham: 6-8 inch snowstorm with huge outflow winds.

  5. The snow has ended here and turned out to be a very nice storm. 5 1/2in is the amount I'm going with, it's quite possible that I have more than that. It's very hard to measure in an open rural area like mine when it's drifted like this. Warsaw, MO about a half hour from my house has 8in reports. Regardless, with the snow combined with record breaking cold this stretch of weather will be talked about for years to come. Oh ya and more snow possible Wednesday, more than enough to make this weather enthusiast happy.

  7. I wanted to wait until the event was over to comment on my thoughts. All in all it will be very memorable for me because of the large area covered by 8-14 inches of Snow. But it's been rather boring for my area only because we're capable of so much more snow than what we actually got. But the excitement leading up to this was worth the outcome to see so many of my my friends on here make up for February 2019. Extremely fascinating pattern and it all had to come together perfectly to cover such a wide area like it did. I'm still left wondering what happened here Friday night with the lack o

  10. An amazing stat I just worked out for KDSM - which I'am sure is true for many reading this. DEC 20' avg temp was +3.3F 3.3*31= +102.3 Jan 21' avg temp was +3.8F 3.8F*31 = +117.8 sooo--- FEB would need 102.3+117.8 = -220.1 to get to normal Through the 15th- avg temp is -18.7F (compared to normal) -18.7 * 15 = 280.5 so unless something drastically changes- this extreme cold and it's length has completely FLIPPED the winter from running 3.5F above normal to likely 2 below normal when this cold blast wraps up mid to late week. That's amazing.

  11. So what started as a quick drive around to get my cranky 2yr old to take a nap since she was fighting it so much turned into a drive to Lake Cavanaugh and it did not disappoint. I had only been there once as a kid and it’s not too far from my place, about 35 minutes or so. Anyway it was snowing up there! I checked my altimeter and it’s just about 1,000ft. If anyone is looking to relocate and wants quiet (in the winter anyway) and snow this is your place!! I love that area!! Side note, I drove past the place near Big Lake we had looked at before buying our current place and they had hardly any

  16. The thoughts this evening seem to be: -The event would have been better with less snow and more cold dry weather (opposite of what people here usually say when we see the latter) -This snow and cold event was in fact a symptom of climate change -We want the snow gone as fast as possible now since it’s an ugly mess Sort of a surprisingly gloomy post mortem for such a fun and winter saving event.

  17. Wow, with deep snow cover, clear skies, and light winds the temperature is absolutely tumbling out there... wonder if Omaha will have a shot at the all-time record low temperature of -32? We might end up closer than expected at this rate. I noticed the First National Tower downtown went dark tonight to help with the power conservation effort... what a historic arctic outbreak that will be remembered for a long time around a large part of the country.

  21. I figured I needed to deviate from my incessant whining about KC's lack of snow and look for some kind of silver lining. And although most people would consider it very much a negative, I'm mildly excited that I'm in the midst of what will likely be my second longest experience of below freezing temps in my life. KC looks like it will go about 15 straight days below freezing before we warm up a few days from now. The longest I've ever experienced was 18 straight days in Minneapolis during January and February 1996. We bottomed out at -32 F on February 2nd that year. For someone like me wh

  23. Thanks! The GRR disco.. .UPDATE... Issued at 1114 AM EST Mon Feb 15 2021 We have not made major changes to our on-going forecast. We are considering upgrading a few counties in the I-69 area to a Winter Storm Warning since it now seems snowfall amounts, gusty winds and low wind chills will all be factors in this storm tonight. We have increased the snowfall amounts around a inch in most places in our CWA. That is the result of most of the recent model guidance is suggesting this. Note too that the last 8 runs, in a row, of the RAP and HRRR have had nearly the same storm total precip

  26. I've managed to cross the zero degrees threshold so it looks like I won't set any kind of really long consecutive hours stretch below zero. It's been pretty cool to watch the temps jump around real time with the network of Ambient weather stations online on this site: https://ambientweather.net/ I'm zoomed into Omaha and you can see the variance across town. My temperature seems a bit warmer compared to other parts of the city, but there is another station not too far away that's been pretty close to what mine has been reporting. It refreshes every two minutes and has been jumping a

  28. Just a few thoughts. This storm was memorable but February 2019 and December 2008 were far better imho. The thing about those two storms that I really loved was the duration. Would have been nice to have cleared off this week. I just went outside and it is nasty out there. It was fun experiencing the wicked cold winds and blowing snow! We still have yet to experience the full extremes this climate is capable of.

  30. Had to run down to Smokey Point this morning so I took a drive up to my old place as well as up around the lakes... First I was reminded that my old area will retain the cold slightly longer than many places in the area, the trees were all still coated was a full degree colder than my current place. Also that minivan off the road at the south end of Lake Goodwin was the exact place where my school bus went off the road on a cold and snowy day in late 1992, you tap the brakes and the angle of the road takes you right to the ditch! That was a fun morning as a kid with an impromptu snowball

  41. Great event for Oregon. But for Western Washington, that winter was defined by a slow bleed of cold air out of the Fraser Canyon that totally buried the Fraser Valley and extreme northern Whatcom County, while leaving the rest of the Puget Sound mild and rainy. At one point, I had like a 36-inch snowpack after 7 straight days of measurable new snowfall. Drifts reached to the rooflines. It was insane, but very localized. Even in Bellingham there was very little snow despite the border communities just 30 miles away looking like the Arctic. It's really the flip side to the pattern we just

  44. Well, KC managed to be the big LOSER again....only a dusting here in my part of KC yesterday. It was so bad that even the sun came out for awhile yesterday afternoon just for fun. I have never been so let down by the model promises of accumulating snow over the last 8 days. Congrats to all that are scoring big with this storm, it's quite impressive what it is doing that far south. After today, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky and northern Louisiana will have recorded more snowfall this winter then KC. (I just threw up) Nonetheless, what an impressive cold snap this has been.
