I’m optimistic regardless of the sentiment on here. Could be the best chance for flakes all year. 

Even though it only shows about a dusting for me I’ll take what I can get during a strong Nino.

We weren’t quite to this current level just yet, but things were very bleak here in January 2019…And Phil was keeping us updated regularly on the hopelessness…Just like right now. 😂

I was surprisingly on board for a good part of January.    Then started to doubt in the lead up.

Yep, if the airmass right now was just a bit colder it would be fairly decent more region wide overrunning event, I wouldn't be shocked to at least see a mix out this way for a bit at some point tomorrow.

I think you will get some light accumulation 

We come from the land of the ice and snow.

Yeah February 2019 was insane. My wife had an emergency appendectomy the day after the Super Bowl though. She went to work (night shift) and got sent home sick at 2am. Had to drive back home in the snow. Then decided to go to the hospital at 4:30am and drive down by herself in the snow. Our daughter was home and sick, so I had to stay home. That whole week was a bit of a blur.

Our favorite online bully always downvotes.     More than anyone else by a factor of 50.  Definitely a mistake.   😁

Wow... that is some chaos. 

i remember hauling the snowblower out of the shed and pushing it up the hill through the grass at half time of the Super Bowl.    Did not see that grass again for 6 weeiks.

35.6 here.  Surface temps are basically always meaningless the night before in these situations.  I’ve seen it go from low 40s to low 30s as the precip moves in many times. 

Antecedent conditions definitely seem meaningless in this type of set up.   Its going to drop to whatever the air mass supports automatically when precip arrives.   The opposite seems to be true with overrunning events.

I had my emergency appendectomy that August. Must have been something in the air that year, Andrew.

I liked it the following October when I was reliving the Jan/Feb 2019 progression, because it underscored how woefully wrong Phil (and many of us) were in the lead up.

I feel it coming... early February will be the time to score here.

This upcoming pattern is ripe for retrogression. And early February is a classic time to score here... and ENSO is close to neutral now. Its coming and I will remind you of this in 3 weeks.

12Z EPS not there in the 10-15 day period.   I think my early February call is on target still... and the models will wait another week and then start looking really good.

I was on board... but then really started doubting a week later so can't really say I called it if I pulled back during the lead up.

I appreciate that, but it’s best to just avoid adding fuel to the fire period.

You lit the fire.  Arsonist taking credit for putting out the fire.  🤨

00Z GFS is running.   Hood Canal and Vancouver Island are going to get snow.  Not so sure about the east side of the Puget Sound.

This snow threat tomorrow looks 100% legit now.  The GFS has gotten progressively better even for my area.  Some of the usual snowy spots look really solid now.

Currently 36 here and some places are already down to freezing.

I’m optimistic that East King County will at least seem flakes flying. Would be nice to get a surprise snow.

That's a positive sign.

Surprising the NWS is totally ignoring it given the numbers forecast for the mid levels tomorrow.

Offshore flow will be fairly weak and we are supposed to have good precip intensity.

The GFS starts shoving everything south of WA during week two.  Could leave us in a fairly chilly situation.
