You can see the low clouds clearing out really fast tonight on the sat loop.  Might be a chilly one.

It’s cleared out quickly here after another disappointingly mild day. Some nice pink skies around sunset and Mount Hood even came out for the drive home. 52/44 spread here so far, but already down to 46. Should easily see a midnight low.

Mostly cloudy with some widely scattered afternoon showers today. PDX somehow made it to 56.

Maybe PDX will get into the mid 40s for their upcoming icon snow event.

You’d think they were all over up there as bad as you make it sound. Sadly I don’t think they could ever survive in Spokane, even with lots of global warming ☠️🌴

Being from the east coast, I’m not sure if you even have the regional context to grasp that you live in one of the best climates on here.

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.

I would rather have cold rain… and lots of snow in the mountains. Especially given the current snowpack deficit.

It's called clown range for a reason.

00z ICON came back North more in line with other models. 18z kept Puget Sound totally dry.

Looks like a big storm across the blue mountain foothills in Oregon. Massive event for the Oregon and S WA Cascades.

I might end up with over a foot and a half of snow here if I'm lucky. The models are great at underdoing my totals

Coldest temp this winter: -6 Jan 13th

Snow depth at Mount Bachelor (last updated Feb 21st) 94" 

Snow depth at my home (updated 2pm Feb 21st): 1.5"

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

Missing this one by a razor’s edge. :(

Just a *little* more confluence to the NE would’ve put me in the jackpot. The most subtle of aspects can prove very consequential with these coastal storms.
