18Z ICON abandoned the Washington snow. Looks cold and dry for Washington with a potential snow event for Portland. That’s different!

Let's lock it in, just triple the Snowfall totals in the willamete valley, and I'll be happy! Glad to see there's still a model to give us Oregonians hope

The ICON is quite a bit colder than earlier runs after Wednesday night.  Instead of cutting under the block it drives chilly air southward over WA.

I would sure rather have cold and dry than just cold rain.  Just amazing how unsure the models are with this.  Certainly explains the unusual amount of ensemble spread so close to the event.

Totally unrecognizable from the 12z.

Another little chilly interlude on the GFS around day 9.  We could be doing much worse this month.

seasonally chilly + unseasonably mild interludes +

(one arctic blast) = summary of winter

Temps have been 3-4 degrees above normal so far. Doing any worse would mean close to an all time warm February.

Sounds pretty marginal and Tacoma doesn’t typically do well in marginal situations. So I’m expecting nothing and am willing to be pleasantly surprised. 

Yeah this one has just never looked to be more than a 500’+ event to me…wherever the precip actually ends up.

If the precip is heavier you could score some. The airmass looks chilly with good offshore flow.

We come from the land of the ice and snow.

Anybody else tracking the east coast snowstorm? They are in full weenie mode on Twitter as it shifted from Boston to NYC the last day. 😂

This was the forecast 24 hrs ago!

I have a friend in Worcester, MA and it looks like the forecast totals have dropped significantly in the past day there.

You can really see the cold front sweeping in from the north on this sat pic.  The North Cascades look really nice.

There's a little bit more time for the cold air to push south before the precip sets in.  Pretty good chance we will see it move a bit more the same way on the 0z.

These snow maps are definitely reminding me of the chilly weather in late February and early March last year here that didn’t amount to much near sea level.

At least we're not Minneapolis, where it is currently running 19 degrees above normal this month:

But even at +19 they have had lows in the 20s almost every night this month.   So maybe people would take that weather!

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!

I was actually taking a pretty good look at it early. Noticed the jump to the south.  Was affraid to mention it on here. 😂

And yet these are the lows from the same model Wednesday night. Really annoying how much more 35-38 degree phantom snow the models show now than they ever used to.
