This is by far the lowest pressure reading of the season and the year for the area. 

Current pressure at SEA is sitting at 28.52Hg, which is equivalent to 965.80mb. 

That’s actually the station pressure which bias adjusted for elevation. Their altimeter setting is about 981mb currently. 965 would probably be close to an all time record.

It’s been forecast to begin with warming over Siberia around January 5th. Been pretty consistent 

At first in November it was forecast mid December. Then it was forecast for the end of December. Now the 5th of January. The next update it will probably start mid January. So we will see if it has impact this winter or not.

First time this season seeing water in my usual wet areas around the property. Definitely have reached the saturation point. Both main and backup drainage systems working well though. Way way better than when we first bought the place nearly 5yrs ago with zero drainage. I don’t know how the previous owners put up with all of the water that would flow right up around the house. (Before and after pic at the bottom) During the December 2018 AR I used a trenching shovel to try and divert some of the water away from the house as I just couldn’t take seeing that much water going under the house. The property line drainage now takes care of most of the water but this secondary drainage area was critical last year when there was a breach with the main one. 
 

Does look like I will need to do some drainage beside my new RV parking area however. I forgot that area likes to get soggy.

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!

You're correct. I was quite curious to know which pressure reading to look at. The altimeter makes a lot more sense than the station pressure.

It updates every run of the GFS or which ever model you are checking.  The PV has been pretty weak and stretched out so far this season.

Just thinking about the Oregon Ducks playing in the Holiday Bowl down in San Diego tomorrow night. I was a much younger man, and my brother and I drove down, enjoyed the game (A 17-14 loss to Oklahoma), and then drove back. We got stopped at Lake Shasta as I-5 was closed due to a ferocious storm. Just happened to be late December 2005.

Tragic: Buffalo woman, 22, dies in blizzard after sending chilling final video to family on way home from work (msn.com)

Apparently the death toll has surpassed the legendary 1977 blizzard...despite how much technology has advanced since then, there's only so much you can do to rescue people when a historic blizzard hits.

Just crazy on so many levels. Sounds like some people died in their cars a mere block from their destination.

The great part was Brady Leaf having a receiver wide open for a game winning touchdown, but instead of lofting it over the linebacker he threw it on a line right to the Oklahoma defender. Ballgame. 

I also remember mocking people from Oklahoma, and then moving there less than a year later.

Pretty sure Toby Keith got to be on the sidelines with Bob Stoops.

Sounds like the family assumed this young lady died from carbon monoxide poisoning after the snow blocked her exhaust. Also at the same time blamed first responders for not being able to get to her... I understand the frustration here and feel sad for everyone but can't see how the responders are to blame here when it's a blizzard. I'd heed the advice and stay the heck indoors.

I still don't understand why Seattle NWS did not advise more strongly on the local coastal flooding.  They worded it as "minor flooding." With such low barometric pressure they should have known that the tides would be significantly higher than predicted.

The NWS has been greatly struggling ever since JAYA left. We just lost to much experience and replaced then with east coast weenies who are not very experienced with our region.

Perfect example of an endogenous cold BC airmass towards the back end of the 12z GFS.

Stable pattern of jet suppression means interior BC can take advantage of the weak solar influence and lack of marine air, as well as the recently built snowpack. Without any Arctic advection, temperatures plummet below 0F. Pretty sick. This can happen to some degree into early February before the sun begins to be a bit too much.

The NWS has been greatly struggling ever since JAYA left. We just lost to much experience and replaced then with east coast weenies who are not very experienced with our region.

Honestly put me in there as an intern. Not majoring in meteorology or atmospheric sciences but at least I could be overly communicative and try to get the message across in layman terms.

They may be in a rebuilding period where they lost a lot of senior staff and the new people don't have the same experience yet. The question is whether they have a good work environment to retain the new people for decades to come.

Looks like the weekend could be mostly dry. Probably some nice AVERAGE weather.

Something to note. Because PDX was able to hold onto the gorge influence until this morning they are most likely going to end the month well below average. They are also above average on the month with precip.

I’m not a fan of ‘sting jet’. This is the first I’ve heard of it, isn’t it usually referred to as the (poisonous tail of the) bent back occlusion? Or is that just Cliff Mass’ preferred terminology and since he’s been the wind guru around here for so long that filtered down into the weenie community?

2022-23 Winter:

11/29: .25" + 1" = 1.25" | 11/30: .25"

12/2: .2" + .5" = .7" | 12/3: .2" | 12/4: trace

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

Total: 5.5"
