35 down from 36

I have plummetted from 37.2 ti 36.7f  Light rain mostly.  Snow on the ground just about 6 miles west and 33f.  Same as '17.  I know eventually I'll get a little.  Just don't want to stay up till 3am to watch it happen.  If the east winds will break through in the next couple hrs, then I have a chance.

32.4F and light snow. Non road surfaces are covered. Need stronger precip rates but it does look like the radar is starting to fill in overhead. 

Same here. Hoping we can manage at least 2"

Heavy flurries in the Puyallup Valley.  I mean heavy.

Someone hoist a special weather statement.

Halfway up the hill it's starting to stick to surfaces but not much on the road yet. My wise phone app seems to think the temp will keep dropping as the snow turns to rain.  Ha. Temp dropped from 39 to 35 in the last 90 minutes.

It seems to come in spurts though, light, then heavy. We'll get a little accumulation if this continues but it'll take a few hours to amount to much, and I'm not sure we'll get it.

Home now. Currently 29.8 degrees with flurries falling. 
DP 27.

34/27 so far on the day. Definitely lost a little snow during the day but the trees are still flocked.

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!

Things seem to filling in but I'm not sure if the enhancement is starting yet-- we'll see. Good timing if so!

Pretty cool watching the temp and DP plunge and the precip starts to hit as the east winds arrive at HIO. I was out on a walk earlier and it just felt like a normal upper 30s PNW rainy day. Turned wintery impressively quick.

Great timing. Won't have to deal with melting during the day, everything after this will probably stick

Pity anyone on the roads right now-- barely any visibility here and dumping snow.

I don't think this band of moisture is going to last very long.

Maybe get a slush 1/8".

Fun to watch though.

I swear the low is lifting north. The train of moisture that was heading towards me, is now trending north.

36f and still a south wind. Quite snowy in Stayton most of the day earlier, but little stickage.

This sucks

Based on the radar loop it does look like it is ever so slightly lifting north.

I’m going to get skunked down here in the mid valley

Mark Nelsen just said you guys should probably get some more snow tonight, T-5" depending on elevation. Really hoping that happens for that area

I now have about 3.5 inches. Has been snowing hard for about 3 hours. I can't complain any more. Most single snow event since 2018. My son-in-law is coming home from downtown. It has taken about an hour and a half to go four miles to I-84. Everyone is trying to get home.

Radar is really looking good in the south sound now…echoes increasing to the SE and moving northwards. Down to 35 as well so things are looking very promising right now.

33/28 t/dt spread here on the north end of the city with mostly overcast skies and an ongoing flurry. To add to the wintry conditions, there is a northerly breeze sending these tiny little snowflakes on a direct sideways collision course with my face at the bus stop. #KoldAidanCheeks aside, today has been a very impressive winter weather day for this late in the season, and a welcome respite from the overal blandness of the better part of the last two months.

Since dear old mother nature is sparing none of her slushy tricks she has stashed up her sleeves, it looks like Seattle will once again get in on some accumulating snowfall overnight, as a broad frontal shield is currently expanding far north of this morning's projections. The Euro and the GFS have both in tandem hopped on the white Thursday train, depicting light to moderate snow increasing over western WA into the overnight hours, and peaking shortly before sunrise. This is giving me some 2/7-2/8/2014 vibes for the central Sound, where an empty forecast suddenly seems destined to bring about a light but significant snowfall based entirely on a last minute jog north with the deformation band. It's a pretty common type of snowfall error in these parts, and on the east coast.

Hoping for a miracle and it can make its way up here 🙏

Models showed it lifting north before heading back south.

Hard to complin about this last minute change!  The fact the 18z models were so dramatically improved for South Sound and Central Sound snowfall means it could end up even better than shown on those.

And how about that weekend system!  That is looking like a pretty big deal at this point.

In the meantime already freezing here with a very cold east wind blowing.

Tomorrow could be historically cold here. PDX already has a decent amount of snow on the ground

Not really at this point. It likes it wobbles in place for a second before heading south according to the models. The radar shows it possibly moving north rn…. Who knows doe

Cliff Mass is already on board. Roads may not be too warm.
