Doinko Posted August 26, 2022 Report Share Posted August 26, 2022 I was scrolling through some old threads here and someone mentioned this tool: http://xmacis.rcc-acis.org/, and I decided to play around with it for a bit. One month I was interested in was December 1968 because of the 14/6 day at PDX and big snowstorm! I know January 1969 was snowier in most places though. So here are some totals around the lowlands in the NWS Portland forecasting area with elevation. The problem is some of these probably didn't report snow that well so I tried to only pick ones that seemed reasonable: Headworks Portland Water: 22.5" (Elevation 748ft) Timber: 21.5" (Elevation: 942ft) Portland Mount Scott: 20.5" (Elevation: 1015ft) - This one is not from the website but from the COOP forms instead Bethany: 18.7" (Elevation: 259ft) - This one is not from the website but from the COOP forms instead Cherry Grove 2 S: 18.5" (Elevation 781ft) Hood River: 18.6" (Elevation 500ft) Dallas 2 NE: 17.5" (Elevation 17.5ft) Battle Ground: 17.0" (Elevation 284ft) Forest Grove: 17.0" (Elevation 180ft) Estacada 2 SE: 16.8" (Elevation 514ft) PDX: 15.7" (Elevation 22ft) Oregon City: 13.6" (Elevation 167ft) Hillsboro: 13.1" (Elevation 160ft) Salem: 12.6" (Elevation 208ft) Molalla: 12.3" (Elevation 400ft) Downtown Portland: 10.1" (Elevation 30ft) Silverton: 8.5" (Elevation 408ft) I left out Longview (5"), Kelso (5"), Troutdale (2.5") since they didn't look right, but I'm not completely sure. Maybe the Mount Scott and Timber ones are a bit low because those totals at around ~1000 ft aren't much more than stations at 250ft? I'm not completely sure though. I thought I would share these totals though because that month looks impressive, snowiest December besides 2008 at PDX! 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
