Here's the snow thus far

By far the most impressive October storm I've witnessed here since 2012 when I bought property. Ended up with 9 inches of powder and is currently 22 degrees down from 24 at 9am. 

Just catching up to everything this morning. I think given that the user base of the forum has been somewhat of a close knit community for 15+ years, there is a bit of leeway given when it comes to be

Down to 50F. Should be a pleasant night before the fog rolls in.

A mostly sunny 34/53 day, with a surprising amount of fall color. Surprising because so many trees got stripped by the outflow winds a week ago. Now 46°F. Would not be surprised to see frost again tomorrow morning, despite the forecast low being too warm for it. Last night overperformed on the cooling as well.

It's called clown range for a reason.

Perfect weather for Halloween with fall colors peaking under bright blue sunny skies.

Just got back from a very light round of trick or treating. A fair amount of kids out but not too crazy - was still able to keep our distance. One house had a "candy shoot" that they flew candy down a pipe into the kids bags. Pretty clever and fun way to still safely celebrate.

Nice!

i set up a table to grab from.  So far just a few kids.  I’ve got my singing pumpkins going with lightning and fog!  Look pretty cool.

Nice to see a lot less energy going offshore. ICON also took a much more favorable shift tonight as well.

Really bright outside.

For Chris... that does not mean it's daylight.   Its brighter than usual for night.  ;)

Solidly cold GFS run tonight.  The pattern evolves a lot more favorably to deliver a Canadian cold front.

We actually had 10 kids show up tonight.   Highly surprising considering last year had none.  I think people are ready to be done with COVID.

We had 20 plus show up, less than last year but higher than the 7 year average.

Amazing how that GOA ridge keeps reinventing itself in the longer range.  Maybe that will be a semi permanent feature this winter.

Yeah Jim... pretty sure people were ready to be done with COVID last March.   But unfortunately it does not appear to be done with us... as people who work in hospitals across the country can tell you.   I have 3 relatives who work in hospitals in Wisconsin and it is bad there.    Keep medical professionals in mind when implying we can just move on and pretend nothing is happening.

Already down to 41 tonight.  If it stays calm all night it should easily drop to freezing here.  Sometimes these nights where we go through a northerly to easterly gradient transition we can do quite well on lows.

Kind of a slightly off topic post here.  Last year we got a new cat and we later found out she is a Maine Coon.  Over the last couple of weeks her coat has puffed out to where it looks she could weather a winter on the North Pole!  Probably just because of the kind of cat she is, but maybe we will see a winter to put that coat to the test.

My parents had one. They are beautiful cats.

I've got a tuxedo with a thick coat as well. She's super friendly and loves attention, even from my dog, who despite playing quite rough, has yet to strike any sort of fear into my cats innocent little heart.

It's the best when you cup her in your arms on her back. I call her a living pillow, though I don't think she's partial to letting me rest her head on her back 😆

My smooth coated Border Collie is currently chilly so she is snuggled up with me...Must mean winter is going to be massively cold! 
Or she is just laying next to me hoping that I might share my gelato...

39 degrees now.  We have arrived at the time of year where it can freeze at night without a cold air mass in place.

The ECMWF delivers a pretty solid cold shot next weekend.  Looks like it gets pretty continental at least down to Seattle.
