We did very well out here back than. Snow on the ground for a few weeks. I didn’t measure it, but definitely one of my most memorable snowfalls in recent history.  There was a very sharp cut off though just west of here. 

I remember that cutoff all too well. We did great here with the first two events during Feb 19, but during the third event we maybe got an inch where even the other end of MV got much more. I was amazed how long all that snow in Ravensdale stuck around. I don’t think it all melted until late March.

Double what the 18z showed. Progress.

Good catch... I was comparing to the 12Z run.

It was 2 feet of concrete here by March.   You could easily walk across the top of the snow and not break through.     But it was all gone by the middle of the month when it got up to 80.    And by late March the grass was green and trees were starting to leaf out.    It was a month of great contrast here!

Agree, I have a gut feeling that the east wind will deliver if we can just get steady moderate precip. Annoyingly the Euro is being inconsiderate...

Betting against King Euro w/ your snow goggles on leads to disappointment.

Snow is picking up again here too.

East of HWY 18 is not a bad place to be in certain situations. Plus much of the area is between 500-700 feet elevation as you move east towards the foothills. Helps in marginal situations.

There’s nothing quite like willing and watching the snow turn from rain to snow. ❄️

5 inches since 6pm and it's still coming down moderate to heavy. 32 degrees.  Probably another 5 inches left to fall just by looking at the radar.

No one on here deserves this more than you man!

Par for the course, of course :P But at least you're not alone in it. :)

- “oh, you’re cold enough? Nah I’m gonna go north”

 

  -“once again, you’re cold? I’m gonna aim west and south.”

 

-“great! You get precip this time… but I’m gonna hand you 33 degrees rain instead”

00Z ECMWF looks really wet later next week.    So much for the models looking dry.     The 00Z ECMWF is showing a great mountain snow pattern but its a little too warm for elsewhere.

Everything is turning white again here. Refilling in the patches in the snowcover! This week just keeps exceeding my expectations.

Awesome! I think things may be improving over here in Belltown, but my snow weenie heart has been broken so much this week that I don't want to believe too much.

ECMWF shows the heaviest precip for Seattle is coming in a couple hours... its going to be another sleepless night for many!    Probably won't get any snow out here.

Pretty sure just enough east wind is getting through the highway 2 gap to kill some of the precip here. Seems like everywhere a couple miles north/south is getting some good snowfall right now. Still mainly flurries here.
