I know this is a washington-heavy forum but does anyone have thoughts on situation in Portland and the return of offshore Thursday. Most forecasts are calling for a cold rain with temps in the mid to high 30s. GFS continues to show temps below freezing and more ice accumulation thursday afternoon/night. It looks reasonably borderline. Temps have been slower to warm this morning. my concern is that if we only make it to the mid 30s today, it’s not going to take very much additional cold air to create problems. But forecasters still seem confident portland makes it into 40s today. Would love any input. Sitting at 28 right now. 

It will be rain unfortunately

Landed! Looks like I got a couple of inches at the house!

Looks like 2-3” on top of the snow from Thursday which still hasn’t melted.

Starting to snow again here. Looks like a CZ might be forming.

Frolicking in the snow with the dogs and kids, and I got a message that the power is out at work…Sure enough…

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!

Well I'll be dipped.  North wind has already made it south of SEA.  The I-90 /18 junction dropped from 40 to 33 already.  Nice to catch a break.  My current temp of 33 might just hold for the high today.

Always be suspicious when the ECMWF shows brisk south winds in a situation like this.

Still 38 down in Corvallis while SLE and EUG are in the mid-40s. Low level cold proving much more difficult to scour out in the west valley than expected.

OSU has thrown in the towel and closed completely for another day.

I drove into Salem this morning around 10am, and the main roads were alright, but the side roads were horrible.

There have been a number of good runs recently.  Some support from other models as well.

Snowing again in the convergence zone!

Still hope for a good part of King County.  Love the fact the south winds were much less of an issue than some models showed they would be.  Very good chance my high ends up 35 or lower today.  I'll take any victory I can get.

Thanks to the CZ I get another hour or two of cold rain! 

It will turn to snow in all likelihood.

I have a small forested area to the northeast of my house that protects me a bit from the worst of the outflow winds. So I was not expecting it to be as strong as it is. 

Basically a near-total whiteout once you get to the more exposed areas of town. Drifts are building up very rapidly.

Just came back from an appointment, and it's looking like Hoth down here with the winds, I can't imagine what it's like up there.
