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!

I think if things still keep improving, later this next week is when the forum will start getting busier again. I really want CFS support though, and it’s just not happening each run.

he ALWAYS over hypes these mega cold events because he's a climate denier like Mass and Bastardi and he thinks these events prove his point.  seen it in his tweets for years (although he blocked me years ago) so they are always reposts on wx boards like this

 

with that said I'm still all in on something coming, but not siberian vodka cold

Cliff Mass thinks there is global warming he just thinks it's exaggerated by the media

Saying that something will happen 100% seems kind of ridiculous though I definitely think we'll see something.

There is some exceptional cold in Siberia right now.  Apparently he thinks that might move.

The ECMWF temperature output for the next 10 days is pretty lame in spite of chilly 850s at times.  Kind of disappointing.

Lovely drive to Bellingham over the last 2 hours.   Partly sunny and dry with a temp between 50-52 most of the way.   Currently 54 in North Bend.

I am guessing there will be some more 50s over the next 10 days.

Kind of makes it easier to take when normally cold places are torching way worse than us.  I'm just dying for the below normal temps to begin again.

I’ll never understand this mentality. I hate seeing other places torch just as much as I hate seeing it torch here.

Jim would be just fine with it being 70 degrees across the eastern 2/3rds of the county the entire winter if it was cold in Covington 😂

If the EPS is trending in the right direction, then the CFS is meaningless

EPS has considerably colder 850s at months end than the 0z.  Pretty decent.

I wonder if anyone still has a 1893 snowball in their freezer! 

That event was nothing short of jaw dropping.  I read there was an unofficial backyard temp reading of -10 in Woodland Park in Seattle, and a -15 in Skagit County.  Fraser River froze over very solidly.  And of course about 4 feet of snow in a one week period in Seattle.  It was so cold a meat market in Seattle was forced to use saws and axes to cut the meat they sold to customers.

And that was after a 29" snowstorm in Downtown Portland in December! Then another 31.8" of snow from 1893-01-26 to 1893-02-08. Wow
