I give it a c+. The 2 reasons it wasn't an f were the 15 degrees at work at 4:30 in the afternoon was amazing and the snow rate today was 4.4 inches per hr which is amazing for any lowland area in the nation. Normally those rates are high in the mountains or in lake effect snow. That was the fastest I have seen 2 inches fall here since 2019. Decent chance this is the last snow chance for places below 1000ft the next 2 days so it was a good way to send the winter off here. This is the first winter since 2016 I haven't had a large snow of more than 8 inches.

I'd agree with you, I'd say it was a C+ here which could get bumped up to a B- if we score a foot or more tommorow night. Guaranteed to end the season on 70+" snow, a low of -6, quite a bit of sub zero and single digit lows, a -2 degree snowstorm, a daytime high of -1 and midnight high of 2, a nice torch in late January with temps up to 67 which was fine with me because our snowpack is above average now. It'll probably be a C- in terms of snow but everything else bumps up the ranking.

Coldest temp this winter: -7 Jan 13th

Snow depth at Mount Bachelor (last updated April 29th) 88"

Excited for tonight! 18z EURO added quite a bit more moisture out here. 925/850s look good as well. We won’t see this much but a few inches is certainly achievable. image.thumb.png.c6b05a32fd7212869aac47d4169ab53b.pngimage.thumb.png.be7e261d7526b0931fb01d32de5675d5.png

4” for me!! 

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!

You don't know where Randy lives???   He has only circled his house on the map for us about 1,000 times over the years.  😀

Its easy to pick out his area on a map because he right on the Snohomish/Skagit County border just a little east of the Sound and I-5.

Yeah, I don't really pay attention to posts that aren't data related or model runs. I'm more likely to remember one of his PNA chart posts. But that's roughly where I thought. south to north is King, Snohomish, Skagit, and Whatcom?

You just listed south to north... that is correct.

And his circles are always on snow maps so its model run related.  👍

Just 100 miles north there's heavy sticking snow right beside the ocean. I'd never guess it looking at the conditions around here. Feels like spring with sun breaking through the clouds.

Yea. Some areas from Duncan and north are doing okay this afternoon.  
 

Temps have cooled here this afternoon with a north breeze.   I’d bet we see a quick hit of snow this evening before things dry out.

I’m at the red dot! 🔴 And wow I was not expecting anymore snow since the snow maps this morning were looking terrible for my area. Hopefully it happens.

This post made me think about how I don't know that temps would have been any different here, had this occurred in December or January. The past two days have had about 522 500-1000mb thickness and -6/-7C 850mb temps, Friday was slightly warmer aloft. We had highs of 36,32,34. Seem about where one would expect in the winter. I generally expect a high around 32 with 522 thickness. 

Yea I’m not sure if this would have played out much differently in the heart of winter.  Perhaps daytime highs might have been a degree or 2 cooler but most areas would have still seen like 40/33 type days and been dependent on steady precip to drop sticking snow levels to the surface.  SeaTac has only seen 0.7” of liquid over the last few days. Even in December there would likely have never been more than a couple inches of snow on the ground.

Yeah, highs might be cooler just because there is less daylight and lower sun angles, but the convective nature of these showers might be weaker because of those factors too. I don't see lows getting much below 32 due to the raging onshore flow. On the other hand the Tuesday-Friday period coming up, would be much colder at the surface in midwinter.

These were my stats from December 2021. Not super impressive temps definitely 4-5 degrees colder on the coldest days, but it was also a much colder airmass on the 26th and 27th with sub 516 thickness and 850mb temps in the -9 to -10C range. 

December 24: 36/32 1.27” 5.5”

December 25: 33/29 0.46” 3.8”

December 26: 29/27 0.77” 8.0”

December 27: 28/23 0.39” 4.8”

December 28: 34/26 0.15” 2.0”

How does the storm look for tomorrow down south? Hope y’all score! Haven’t been tracking it 

It's going pretty far south, might give DareDuck and SunRiver some backwash snow. Not sure how it's looking for the Rogue Valley.

00z HRRRRRR, NAM, and NAM 3KM all gave me over half a foot of snow. HRRRRR gave me less than the 18z, but the other models trending north is encouraging, it's going to be fun tracking this thing!

This would be nice, but not counting on it. Been halfheartedly raining with a little slush in it all afternoon. If only the precip rates were higher it would be fun times.

I think you’ll see some tonight.  Higher elevations could do well over there.  
 

Picked up 1/2” here but I think the precip is finished already
