Pretty cool you had snow last month and this month. Have to get up at 4:30 for work tomorrow morning but there’s a chance we could get some snow here tonight as well. Might have a hard time sticking though. Currently 39 here with light precipitation starting moving in from the north. 

Yeah I’ve gotten measurable snow in Nov, Dec, Feb, Mar, and now April. And a trace in January. Pretty cool to have gotten snow for 6 straight months though I wish Januarys snow was measurable. Tonight would probably have been a pretty decent event for a lot of people if it was Dec or Jan. I still feel like a lot of people will at least see snow in the air. I wonder how much longer it’s going to continue IMBY I’m down to 32.8 now.

Had some light rain/snow mix but not much out here... at least not yet.   Activity seems to be more focused towards the Sound.

Getting ice pellets and rain mixed now. Probably a sign that we may see some snow soon. Very interesting radar loop almost like an arctic front sagging down through the Puget sound…just the early april version. 

That’s what it looks like on the cam….like a wall cloud moving south. Will see if I can get a time lapse to work to see the motion of those clouds tonight

I haven’t seen any flakes yet just been some hail mixed in with the rain so far. Heaviest precip hasn’t really worked in yet.

The GFS is close to what we have now by day 9 and 10.   Pretty funny... persistence is hard to break.   I have assumed there would be no warm spell for a couple days now.  I am sure there will be some decent days mixed in there regardless of how it plays out.

Hard not to get some nice enjoyable outdoor days this time of year. This springs been chilly so far…but it seems like there’s been more nice days mixed in than last spring so far.

Down to 30, about another half inch with that last shower. 3.4" on the day and a little over 2" on the ground.

Probably won't see much of the foothill snow moving forward, but definitely a lot of mountain snow on this run!

Perhaps they are part of the “East of the Rockies” thread and wanted to get the footage to post on the forum! 

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!

0.75" more snow than I have received IMBY in the past 34 winters.

It kind of surprises me you haven’t seen any measurable snow the past 34 years in the PNW after March 1st. From what I can remember I’ve gotten measurable snow past March 1st in Apr 2008, Mar 2009, Mar 2012, Mar 2013, Mar 2019, and now Mar 2023 and even had trace amounts in Mar 2017 and 2020 and Apr 2022. So it’s been pretty good IMBY after March 1st.

I've had trace amounts but no measurable ones. YVR recorded a trace last night, and wouldn't be surprised if a few flakes fell here when I was asleep. But the measurable-snow jinx continues.

Mind you, other than the jinx continuing, it's been a great winter IMBY.

It's amazing how the GFS has just completely abandoned the idea of any ridging at all.

At 5am, Eugene, Grants Pass, and Seattle were all reporting either flurries or light snow. Not bad.

Over spring break my daughters school announced they would be making up their snow days by starting 15 minutes early each day the rest of the year. But they are currently on a two hour delay today...

Lee's Camp had a good bit of snow overnight. Some precip making it over the coast range, I wonder if it'll be snow.

I went to bed around 11p and we picked up 2.5" between then and 6am, not sure when though, but looks like more moisture about to move in. Great trough to end winter with, though I'm not convinced it is our final flirtation with snow up here...
