OK, this is pretty funny.   "Nothing left alive except for small burrowing mammals which will eventually evolve and repopulate the region."

I have never seen it snow like this!  Coming down so hard while swirling and blowing sideways.  It looks like diamond dust the way it sparkles in the yard light. This is the best event I've ever seen

Some sunshine breaking through now. Looking like precip is over for the most part, at least for the morning.

Weather-weenies are out in full-force right now (me included). 

 

It's hard to look at maps that show 8-12 inches, then 4-6, then possibly lower again but part of model riding at it's best.

 

I think if greater Seattle received 6" with this Friday/Saturday storm, we'd all be very pleased.

 

Seeing Jim Forman in the orange parka, would be icing on top..

The cold trend on the ECMWF is crazy and very clear.

No no no no no. Believe last time he was here, it turned into a bust.  :unsure:

He was here for 10/15/16, right? That was a bust I certainly did not care to see.

If anyone can provide some 12z euro insight for Wednesday on through next week, that would be appreciated.

Can't post maps now... but it shows a little more snow for Oregon and not much up here... that is for days 7-10.

Man - the timing of this thing could REALLY disrupt the work and school commute.  This might be the real story for the next 24 hours - watching the timing!

I apologize for being kind of on edge. I promise I’m not trying to mock anyone for lesser snow totals, but just projecting my own insecurities about being trigger-happy in regards to the models. I’m sorry that certain areas are getting screwed out of snow, and I should definitely work on getting worked up about things I can’t even control (because weather is hardly the only thing I agonize about that I have no say in whatsoever).

There's always going to be winter weather winners and losers in such a large geographic area with so much topographic and micro-climate variation. In ten years, I will fondly recall January and February 2017 among the great recent events, while for large swaths of the Puget Sound region those periods were just...meh. I have a feeling February 2019 will be the exact opposite. C'est la vie.

Total snow for the 12Z ECMWF run.  

 

95% of the snow in the Seattle area comes in a single 18-hour period starting tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m.

 

The snow from Portland southward comes in so many events that I lost count.

Okay. Here is the guidance from the EURO for tomorrow- next week. I looked at SLE, EUG, PDX, and SEA. A lot of these are midnight or early morning highs and lows at midnight. Going to be a roller coaster for places south of Seattle, but overall incredibly cold.

Looks very good for Portland this run. It's going to change again though... the only system with high confidence is the weekend system.

I still think the low and precip are going to get modeled further north and that some of the precip details by the Euro are being underforcast, this based off of past performance and experience - but also, past performance is not indicative of future performance

 

also, the 15th still looks like it could be a jaw dropper for some

Those low temps though for KSEA. The surrounding areas will probably in the single digits as KSEA is typically a little "warmer"
