GFS wants to keep us cold forever!  That thing around the 10th or so looks great on this run.

That's awful I am sorry. I lost my Dad 10 years ago to ALS. A horrific evil disease. Where has time gone. A decade? It's like we've been living in an alternative universe. Lost my brother in June. Still not coping with it. I'm 50 myself, and it just puts everything in a very clear perspective. This holiday season is rough, just have my Mother who sadly is declining now I think my brother passing has just taken too big of a toll on her. I see her fading every day with her memory and so on. It's killing me. Trying to be positive and had my nephew here today to decorate the house for Christmas. Thankfully all three of us were in good spirits today, enjoying each other, trying to make the best of it all. I just don't know and the future is very depressing. Since June I have been just very lost and destroyed. I have to find joy in life again somewhere. Thankful for this weather forum, all you weather geeks and geekstresses, and of course my PDX WX Analysis group on Facebook. I enjoy all of that tremendously and it is also a good distraction from things.

Brother I promise you that happiness will return.  After my wife died I truly thought I would never feel happy again, never smile or laugh. It returns. We lost a child 2 months ago and my fiancée is coming around, smiling and feeling better. It takes time but it will get better buddy.

You have such a great attitude considering the pain you have been through.

It looks so cool when it snows over there when it is below zero. The snow looks like diamonds falling from the sky. I've had heavy snow there at -5.

I have been really good, I do not look past 120 hrs anymore.  Makes no sense. 

Incredible discipline.  Past day 7 or so I just look for strong signals and trends.  That thing around the 10th is really gaining momentum.

We get that sparkly snow here sometimes.  When it does that you know it's real.

I couldn't imagine not having my wife of 37 years around.  We are two peas in a pod.

I had a hunch we might be on a good road, but seeing it actually happening (at least for now) is awesome.

You've been through so much buddy. I am sorry. I guess focusing on those we still do have with us and finding things we enjoy. Thank you, I appreciate what you've said here and I do hope it comes back. Soon.

Down to 28 here.  Falling a bit slower than I thought it would but still cold.  Bellingham is at 18 and Lytton at zero.  The BC cold factory just keeps giving!

Some real cold in place east of the Cascades now.  The easterly gradients coming up are going to keep us cold.

You're the kindest person on here my friend. You and your family will be stronger and always keep lifting one another's spirits. Thank you for showing such graciousness and I'm truly heartbroken to see what you've been through, I'm so sorry. Y'all deserve mother nature's snow gifts more than any of us.

Should be a record low at BLI today. Tomorrow is pretty low-hanging fruit as well at 20.

Some of the models are still pretty moist for tomorrow's system, which would theoretically bode well for snow in the lowlands. The UKMET, for example, has .6" of QPF in the Seattle area.

qpf_024h.us_nw.png

And yet, almost none of that is considered "snow" by the model. Part of it is surface temps slightly above freezing. But I was also looking at the WRF-GFS, and there is a distinct warm-nose up the valley.

slp.30.0000.gif

I haven't seem temps discussed much regarding tomorrow's system, but some of the models with higher QPF are not outputting snow, and I wonder if temps are more marginal than we would assume with the current airmass.

Pretty clear at this point that the default/background state for this winter is not going to be warm. There was a point where a warmup / switch to SW flow was forecast in late November and it pretty much fell apart. Reminds me of the multiple warmups forecast through April/May that ended up being one or two days before it went right back to cold.

It’s December 1st.

I assume schools will be closed here tomorrow because there is snow on the ground.   😀

The Snoqualmie Valley school district goes through the same routine every year.   Early in the season they are shut down happy.    Then by later in the season they stay open through everything because they have run out of snow days.   I remember driving my kids to school in a blizzard one year... 40 mph wind whipping snow around and roads snow covered but the district was worried about going to school until almost July.  

Seattle schools already go till after the 4th of July this school year because of the teachers strike.
