  1. Down to 37 here. Wouldn't be surprised to see some flakes mixing in as some returns are coming across the Sound.
  2. Heavy sleet in West Seattle. Ground is turning white.
  3. That band moving through the metro is rain here
  4. Solid moderate snow here with big flakes as those bands roll in from the southwest. No sign of a transition yet.
  5. 31F with very light snow. 1 inch of new snow accumulation today so far.
  6. Big dendrites with that band stretching from the Kitsap Peninsula to the Seattle metro down towards Kent
  7. Will be interesting to see how long we can stay snow today with those winds still coming out of an easterly direction. Yesterday’s models showed us hanging on to snow till late in the afternoon. The ECMWF show 2.5-3 in. here. Temperature currently 30F.
  8. Things may start out drier but as we get closer to the transition, the lower parts of the boundary layer will increase slightly above freezing which allows for melting and wetter snow. We'll see dew points increase with increasing moisture/warm air advection.
  9. NAM 3km 06z indicating the possible of some heavy wet snow before the transition to rain later in the morning.
  10. Hopefully this makes more believers of the Kuchera ratio.
  11. Dumping snow under that band moving in to the central Sound now.
  12. I'm not sure. You're best bet would be to monitor the radar imagery. Surface wind streams reveal and axis of convergence is located over the southern Sound which favors precipitation to the north it where there's still upper level divergence.
  13. Heavy snow incoming for the metro from the south
  14. There's some returns coming from Victoria that may clip you guys as it moves to the SE
  15. Latest NAM and HRRR suggests another 4-5 hours of snow in the Seattle metro area associated with the back-edge of the low as it moves east of the area. Look for precipitation to funnel in from the north.
  16. There seems to be a pattern of the ECMWF showing warmer temps that fail to materialize as much as it forecasts and it ends up having to correct itself on the next run. The low came in further south than it had forecasted.
  17. NAM and HRRR show snow continuing for another 7-8 hours in the Seattle metro area.
  18. The low is located just south of Aberdeen baed on surface observations and radar imagery
  19. 8 inches here. We should be able to easily get over a foot before all is said and done
  20. Definitely some strong returns developing over the central Sound. Was going to take a nap but it’s hard to now.
