All focus should really be on experimental gardening going forward.

I agree with you, someone needs to get rid of the admin of this forum. Do you still have his address so we can send him a strongly worded letter? Maybe we can get a lawyer involved.

Beautiful day for a snowshoe to Trillium. Snowpack isn’t great but at least it’s not dismal either. A lot of people out walking on the lake. I’m guessing it froze pretty hard during the January cold spell, but I still wouldn’t trust it.

Temps were in the low to mid 30s with lots of sun.

Do they have a 50:1 ratio map?  This is going to be absolute dry powder.   😀

There was some nice eye candy at the end of the 18z.

This would make up for January 

Seriously could end up in Portland again.   Remember GFS showed the Seattle area getting buried just a couple days out in January.     The 18Z control run today put the snow band right over Portland.

Wow, checkout the 12z CFS! Early March historic arctic outbreak, thanks to the good ol' SSW. It's a lock a this point.

Next week is interesting and worth keeping an eye on, but I hate to say this, I doubt it'll be anything special. Last few days of February and early March is what I'm really keeping my eye on.

Now that's the spirit! When has the long range CFS ever been wrong? especially when there's a ssw!

Niiiceee! Puts the lowland snow bullseye right over salem, which is where I'm always rooting for because some of my grandkids live there! A good amount for me too!!

00z EURO shows enough of a Cold Pool in the Columbia Basin for snow down to sea level with offshore flow as a system moves onshore. It’s just going to be a question of where the low tracks. Right now Salem/Corvallis is in the bullseye but expect this to change as we get closer to the event. A snowstorm is looking likely sometime later next week somewhere along the I-5 corridor between Vancouver BC and Eugene.

NWS mentioned the chance in their latest AFD
 

However, if the first, colder scenario materializes, lower
elevations could see some snow concerns once again late this week
into next weekend due to the combination of Pacific moisture and
potential cold air intrusion from Canada. However, this is one of
those situations where the timing and location of each feature needs
to be nearly perfect with the cold air from Canada making it west of
the Cascades or having enough of an easterly wind to pull cold air
through the Gorge from eastern Oregon by midweek, then remaining in
place through the end of the week or weekend as the approaching
Pacific frontal systems push precipitation into the region. The
timing of said snow chances mainly centers on Wednesday night through
Friday, with a few outliers bringing additional lowland snow chances
into the following weekend.

Yeah, it'll be going back and forth the next few days, whoever gets the goods at this point is completely up in the air, I dont think there is any location it is leaning more likely currently. I just hope it ends up about the same as tonights euro, but ideally a bit stronger, and a couple degrees cooler. It being a bit stronger is really all we need for it to cool down more. This thing has got good potential.
