Totally incredible.  The FV3 is 100% on board for another round of significant cold just like the GFS.  How is this possible after having the block in place so long already.  Something really spectacular going on here!

This month’s mean is going to shatter the record for coldest February on records.

 

Edit: should mention for KSEA.

Heavy rain coming down, washing away the annoying white stuff that fell earlier.  :P

Pretty crazy stuff, I used to think February was a lost cause for winter weather in the PNW. Now we've had Arctic air/snowfalls in Feb 2011, Feb 2014, Feb 2017, Feb 2018 and now this. No other month has come close in terms of delivering winter weather in this area this decade.

So....we have the GFS, FV3, and Canadian showing some Arctic air seeping in again later next week, and the ECMWF not too far from it.  Good trend right now.

The lower solar cycles may be coming home to roost. It is thought the weaker solar cycles cause a slower (more blocky) atmosphere which causes the more extreme events. It's highly possible the last half of the 20th century and first part of this century were unrealistic compared to a norm of more severe weather.

Yeah, I read that a Super Grand Solar Minimum could begin next year according to one scientist. This is just unprecedented blocking that I've seen and it looks like it's not ending anytime soon.

If KSEA gets 15.3" more, the old 1916 record for February snowfall is toast. Probably won't happen, but something to think about.

 

Slightly possible, but I bet Sea - Tac had more than downtown in 1916.  This will be a more impressive February overall regardless.  Feb 1916 was just the end play of greatness that dominated January.

The Euro isn't as cold as all of the other models.  Waiting for the EPS to come in.

41 and cloudy. Been seasonably cool for the last couple weeks outside of 0.2” on the 5th. The new normal for EUG, make sure to be the most boring part of the region weather-wise.

Funnel of warmth. Sounds like a ride at the North Bend carnival.

 

Downsloping east wind.   It was the east wind that also caused all the snow.    Its an interesting micro-climate for sure.  

 

I just know there are lots of people who still need help and I am very happy to see the warmer temps there.
