It is worth noting that all of our recent big events had a mid-range pullback and then reversed it going into the event... as Randy often points out.  

Absolutely…late November into early December was going horribly then it turned around. Not quite as good as it was modeled beforehand but it ended up pretty good for a lot of people still. I’m feeling optimistic about next week more and more but we will see where we’re at in a couple days.

Seriously, this is the guy moderating this place??! 🤦‍♂️😂

Lol, looks like you’re a silly fun guy so you’re good in my book !  Great pics and I’m glad you’re moderating this place.  You do look like one of my friends from the 70s 😱.  He’s in radio as you can tell

I wish I had a time lapse camera going, we had a beautiful sunrise in the making with it being clear down low, but a nice shelf of clouds to catch the pink/oranges of sunrise.  I look outside 5 minutes later and it is socked in with fog, but its a dense but shallow layer so the fog is now glowing pink/orange.

Euro gives Portland a bit of snow with that system, the GFS has it way up north. Hoping it trends south

I hope it trends perfectly for everyone’s location.  
 

I’d actually be happy with like 4-6”of snow and then some prolonged sub freezing weather.  And you guys down south can have your big snowstorm

Just noticed the same over here! Beautiful pink fog. Glad we managed to finally get some real fog on my side of town this season. I hope the roads arent too icy, I almost ate s***walking in to the office yesterday lol.

37F high for yesterday since it never cleared completely. Currently 32F and cloudy let's see if we will see some sun today.

Roxy Ann Peak in Medford. We go there from time to time just to see Medford all cover in fog/clouds.

Gfs continues to trend colder sooner. Could be a great event for Bellingham. Fairly long duration up there too.

Yeah... that area was warm nosed.    While areas around Tacoma and from I-90 northward kept the low level cold longer.   It was a mess out here.   

That’s one thing I hated about Maple Valley. Seemed like we always warmed and turned to rain before everyone else.

Looks like 12z GFS is a bit colder for Sunday - Tuesday with some soldiers Sunday, but then dry and cold air spills east with no overrunning event at all anymore. 

Much different than the ICON... the initial trough is too far east to dig out over the ocean and spin up that big overrunning event the ICON shows.    The 12Z GFS is actually quite a bit faster to move the trough out than even its 00Z run.  

Looks like the 12Z GEM is going with the GFS type solution from what I can see so far.

Gem and gfs look pretty similar with the energy kind of split as it approaches offshore. 

Yes... both the GEM and GFS do the same thing and warm it up even faster than their 00Z runs.    I was thinking they would at least go in the direction of the ICON.  

The GFS and GEM are a little colder initially though.    But colder initially seems to end up being warmer faster.

It's been 'cold' down here. Pretty wet/cloudy the last week and a half, too.

Prescott and Flagstaff got hammered the other day.
