Based on radar looks like N winds are colliding with the band of precip working in south. Snow is slowly getting heavier. Looks like some good upslope snow in port Angeles area.

Makes sense. Wind is light southerly here.

32. Big fat flakes are starting to come down and it’s getting heavy all the sudden.

Awesome. It’s a solid setup for you this morning!

Definitely! Should warm into the mid 30s today I’d imagine the north wind and lower DPs should creep back in and the snow should stick around the next couple days.

PDX has to be one of the worst official recording locations in the region at least. 40 degrees???

Temp at 31.3* DP at 30.4*  We have just under 2 inches of snow, and school is canceled in Yelm today, so, I am a happy camper. :)

I was so excited to let Tormund (6mo puppy) out and see his reaction to snow........Nada. lol He is thoroughly unimpressed and showed it by peeing on the deck.

The NWS has a graphic posted about wind chill and temps in the teens and twenties down here....but there's no timing on it, it just says "morning". There is no wind, and it is 31* here......Does anyone know anything about timing on that....or is it not happening....?

Took a quick measurement and we picked up 0.3” of snow with this first band this morning. Still not sticking to the main road much but it’s sticking on the side streets a bit.

Good question because I think tmrw morning and sat morning we are also expecting some showers? Which may eat into our potential dry out and coldest periods

Light snow with fat flakes here just started maybe 15 min ago. Seems like same situation as TacomaWx. Not covering main roads yet but close. Temp is rock steady at 32.0

Thanks. Traffic cams seems to say the same, looks like coming down good in some spots but roads bare for most part

We got just enough last night to start the covering process. Roads were half inch of slush when I took the dog out at 9pm. That mostly froze so I’d bet it won’t take long to cover unless they warmed up a bit this morning - also likely since I went up from 31 to 32 and I’m above the freeways and cams.

Yeah the forecast discussion talks about possible showers tomorrow, and about the other systems coming, but has no mention of the 18* wind chill the graphic shows....So I am very confused.

Radar shows it snowing here but the streetlight says otherwise. 

The first band came through and it snowed pretty good this one not so much. Just light snow here for now. Sometimes it takes the flakes a bit longer to make it to the ground? Lol

Radar is soooo frustrating in these situations. I tell myself the same things like oooh I bet they’re blowing away from the clouds at an angle so the radar signatures actually need to be north of me or some bs lol

That’s probably it. Something big is brewing up in the clouds. When it gets here…. Look out!!

I’ve done pretty well not going to the radar and just enjoying the background snow happening and doing my projects around the house.  Watching the radar or stock market I found is bad for my health at times!!! 
I have to say it’s pretty weird to be getting the action this week.  Usually we’re the ones to fail at the white stuff.

26 with DP at 13.  0" accumulation of snow overnight but we did accumulate 18.3 miles per hour in wind gusts. 

 

We did have some thick freezing fog around 9-10 last night, glad the winds did kick that up to push that out and get rid of the ice that was starting to accumulate.

Over 1.5” now and it’s coming down good again. Radar is looking impressive and this time it’s also impressive at the surface.
