Silver Falls hit 1 with that cold snap. Pretty amazing we can have a massive arctic blast and no snow and then score accumulating snow on days like last Wednesday and Saturday .

Yeah, definitely some of the most impressive bare-ground lows on record in western OR with that one. Similar to December 2009 or January 1974.

Take that for what it’s worth. He pretty spot on with whatever is coming usually. Emotions don’t play a role in his world. 

He pretty much nailed the ice storm in December in terms of temps and exactly when we'd warm up. No other met came close really

ICON actually looked pretty good for a quick Portland snowstorm this weekend. Very 2/12/95 esque

This

and this

would almost certainly be snow to the north of that little low as it drops down the coast, but we know the ICON sucks with precip type.

I think I'm sitting in an okay position for anything Saturday night. A 2/12/1995 repeat would be amazing. From that video posted earlier it looked like some places in the metro area had 12-14" in SW PDX?

.22” so far on the day, 3.53” for the month. 
41/37

Currently 40 and moderate drizzle which hasn’t changed at all the entire day.

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!

Yeah, SW Portland up through downtown had 10+" and areas in the hills had up to 14".

Had about 6" where I was in Salmon Creek. Cleared out and got down to 12 on the 14th.

That trend to push the block south delays its eventual escape to the Arctic. Verbatim should add potential to the long range should it continue.

Push it far enough south and you get zonal flow which cannot physically float to the pole. Problem solved!

We were watching a movie and I fell asleep.   I see the 00Z GFS was quite snowy!   Sure makes up for the lack snow over the weekend in a hurry.    😀

Guardians of the Galaxy with my daughter who had never seen it.   I have seen it so many times that I couldn't make it through.

Hmmm… released 8/1/14. Not exactly an inspiring analogue.
