For better or for worse EURO is no longer showing that wild mountain wave event-- wishy-washy and disgraced "king" for all the weird stuff it's been putting out lately.

NWS Spokane is calling for average temps here in the long range.  All the ensembles are showing us getting a good amount of snow.  Not sure why they think it is supposed to be so warm here Definitely not any major cold, but it honestly looks like average temps over east of the mountains.

It's a tricky forecast with that intense low so close.  Some places will be windy.

I agree.  Easterly gradients should keep it cool over there.  The ECMWF actually has the first 4 days of January below normal over here as well.  By mid-month the deck will be reshuffling and could get good for many of us.

Temps are probably best.  Regardless this looks promising.

Evidence is mounting we will be into a good pattern before the end of January.  It would be awesome to have a good event the second half of January to say the least.

The ECMWF is pretty bullish on a few frosty nights coming up.  That's something at least.

Somebody said it was snowing at 34 degrees.  Obviously the light and fluffy mention means it got colder or this is a higher elevation.  I'm glad for them.

it started snowing at 34F yesterday then after about 3 hours it dropped to around 30F. I got 36" in around 10 hours. Craziest storm I have ever seen.

Snow lab is at 6800' so just 500' higher than the lake.

Thought I would get this posted for record keeping sake…And at the gas station so I have internet lol. Slightly less liquid through the gage this year as opposed to last year. However we could probably add a few inches since I did accidentally wipe all the snow off the WS last January 1st trying to get the thing to send a signal. Also my temp right before midnight was slightly warmer than last year.

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!

All of the damage and power outages in Corvallis happened in a very short period at 4 am.  Winds are now much lighter by comparison.  SSE winds can surface here much more easily than SW.

Peak gust at my sheltered station of 33 mph is the highest so far in this location (since 2016).

Peak winds corresponded with a brief but rapid pressure rise from the lowest point (29.03") and a sudden temperature drop albeit only slightly more than a degree.  Not much rain happening at the time.

What sort of phenomenon would this be?  Passage of occluded front mixing winds briefly to the surface?

Pressure surge alone would augment vertical momentum transfer, possibly mixing down stronger gusts from aloft where wind direction was veered more W/SW. The wind shift could’ve also been a mesoscale phenomenon but the pressure surge would still have been integral.
