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. 

That is really amazing.    Glad to see the South Sound scoring again.

I've picked up about another inch this morning.  Looks like a nice area of snow east of OLM right now.  Hard to tell how far west the snowfall from that will extend when it gets further north.

28.1 degrees. No snow falling. Might never snow up here again. It’s over, dreams are dashed. Time to move down to Puyallup. 
The snow is now crunchy with the paw prints frozen in time.

Elevation 580’ Location a few miles east of I-5 on the Snohomish Co side of the Snohomish/Skagit border. I love snow/cold AND sun/warmth!

We had a dusting of snow last night. Not enough to measure and really just a coating. Still interesting.

Looks like the South Hill is about to get blasted with snow.

Hope that band over Olympia can move NE

I think you're going to catch this big shower moving up now.  It might be far enough west for me too.

The 06Z GFS showed the next significant precipitation here is on December 12th... that it 12 days with almost nothing.    Pretty unusual for early December.    The snow here is going to be around for a long time... until we get a SW wind and rain event.

Dry is nice once you have snow on the ground.

That big shower is going to be a close call for this area.  The more steady stuff has stayed a bit west for the most part.  Great day for Tacoma.

Radar shows a nice band moving north from Puyallup into E King. Hope it can hold together!

This has your area written all over it.  I think it might link up with the area of steady precip just to the west.

With any snow Friday Night this could be a very period with snow on ground for a long time

Especially with that dense base of wet snow you got.

The snow on Tuesday night was dense here as well... it was unusually tough for the snowblower to throw it and it kept getting clogged.

Nothing here but a light frost. Glad I stayed up to watch the Tuesday night slush, hope that’s not the only snow of the season.

12/18: .4" | 12/19: .2" + .8" = 1.0" | 12/20: .2 + 1.5" = 1.7

Total: 5.5"

Had some flakes in the air earlier but nothing sticking yet. Down to 35 which is the low for the day so far. Heading down toward Corvallis today so should be an interesting drive at very least.

Ended November with a 46/38 day yesterday. PDX put up an absolutely pathetic 49/41.

I'm glad you had that problem too. I thought it was my blower but the snow was like concrete. I was going to message you and ask how yours was working.

We come from the land of the ice and snow.
