I know I keep updating ever two seconds but this is evolving quickly. The good events tend to do that. Absolutely gnarly sky. Been hearing more thunder.

Most of the action has been a few miles south of me since this morning. Met up with my dog training friends east of Mt. Vernon earlier, had a few moments of hail but otherwise dry. Cold though, currently 39 at home.

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!

Nice looking cumulus. Something to know about me... I love clouds. Kind of a shocker I know but I thought coming clean would be best.

Turning really dark to the west despite radar remaining relatively blank. I wonder if there's a cumulus tower shooting upwards faster than KATX scans. Would make sense since the best lift is now entering north Seattle, where the environment is quite primed.

Total april fool's joke. Prank'd hard. Not even a sprinkle, just some grey clouds and gusty winds as the lifting mechanism (advancing cold air pool) fell apart fast. Actually really funny how things played out given today's holiday.

These parcels are sharing no pause spilling their contents all over southern snohomish county though. There have been red echoes there for like an hour now. As is the way things typically seem to play out.

Had some moderate rain earlier but we’re just a little too far north with this WSW flow coming in. Flow needs to turn a bit more southerly for us to get nailed. 

Getting a good soaking here from this shower.  Some splats mixed in.

Seems quite possible that there could be snowflakes in the overnight hours with how cold this airmass is. That’s if there’s precipitation of course. It’s pretty darn chilly hit 41 a bit ago in mid afternoon that’s pretty cold.

As cold as this airmass is, april 2022 was a beast in its own league. That was mid month and we pulled off 2 days with trace accumulations of snow. Coldest April day I’ve ever recorded with a 42/32 temp spread on 4/13 last year…which was totally insane for that time of year.

Yeah this isnt much different than April airmasses we have seen in 2020, 2018, and 2015. Potential to be in the same league as 2012 which was a very cold early April airmass. Early April 2009 seems like a decent analog too.

That same airmass briefly affected us here, delivering a low of 10 on 4/13, the second latest DEN has been that cold.

And then 9 days later we hit 89, the second earliest to reach that temp.
