Switch to CASAG on RadarScope. That picks up super light stuff in the central sound way better for some reason, and must be what NWS integrates into their combo radar map. 

Changing the tilt on KATX worked too. It's moisture higher up in the atmosphere that isn't making it down to lower elevations where the lower tilt would see it.

I definitely hate the fact there’s an ice storm coming but it’s a very interesting phenomenon still. It’s pretty rare here to get ice storms haven’t had freezing rain in 11 years now…one of our more rare weather events and it’ll be very interesting to track and see how long the cold air holds on.

EUG is a very good station, just a notch below OLM. I have faith.

I was worried SLE was going to somehow hit 30 this afternoon, but it doesn’t look like it. Even if they are warmer than any other mesonet station in town.

Yep, NOWcasts incoming!!!  They already changed us from 80% chance of snow to 100% and they extended our timeframe, now expecting it to snow until 7 AM, 7 AM-1PM freezing rain, rain after.  This bodes well for you guys further north.  Could be stalling and be more of a prolonged event.  This intial push does appear to be elongating west to east as opposed to more of a SW/NE push.

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!

Cold air layer is much deeper east of the mountains, though.

I'm just talking about the delay of the front.  The longer we can get this pre-frontal moisture without the wind shift, the more frozen precip we will all get.  We want this sucker slow slow slow.

Winds have absolutely ramped up even further-- we usually don't lose these many branches from easterlies

Looks like our roads up here right now, traction is really good! 

Can confirm (after spending 4 hours in a ditch this morning) that traction is not "really good". To be fair my tires are nearing the end of their life and I think if they weren't almost bald the roads wouldn't be terrible, but definitely still some slipping and sliding even with good tires.

The precip over North Seattle that looked like it was just virga seems to have darkened into green a bit. Anyone seeing anything there, or is it phantom snow?

 

Nothing, ironically the dewpoint has dropped back down to 9 with this supposed band! It's 25.5 and the wind is continued light out of the east.

Light snow reported at Astoria, that's a good sign.

For sure... it appears the 850mb temp is above freezing there.

Waves at the crowd of Weather aficionados. My first post. Learned and ghosted you all during the major freezing rain storm two years ago. On Genny power for 11 days.  Back to your question SilverfallsAndrew, I'm in Oregon City, maybe 10-12 miles south of PDX proper depending on how the bird flies. Been complete cloudy skies all day. 23.7 degrees at my house. 

I saw some sunlight peeking through the clouds at one point today. I'm a sleep deprived zombie today so I can't tell you what time that was.

You can actually see this looking at Google Maps traffic. Highway 202 is orange in all the roads of North Bend and suddenly flips to green at the Snoqualmie border. I had thought it was just that NB got more snow but it must be due to what you’re saying.

Looks like Bozeman only made it to -24 today, Spokane made it to 3, Mazama -1, Wenatchee 2, and Pullman 3.

Which means today will officially go down as the coldest day on record for the airport with a staggering average temp of -34.5. The high today was also their all-time lowest on record. Unreal.

Have to wait a little longer to see what Bozeman MSU numbers come in at.
