Solidly chilly. 28 at PDX is impressive for PDX if it verifies.

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

I'll never forget the first winter in our Eastern Washington house. First snow was 4 days before Thanksgiving. I had not raked the leaves yet. Woke up to 6" or so of snow. Was super stoked and excited. Kids and I rode the 4x4 atv all day with the sled in tow. Temp never rose above 25 degrees for weeks on end despite clear blue sunny skies, It was awesome! But then another snowstorm came and another and another. By the time mid March had rolled around, the temp managed to creep into the upper 30s for daytime highs. The snowpack was beginning to melt away. I had  forgotten about the leaves I so lazily failed to rake up and burn. Once the snowpack melted down far enough to where blotchy patches of hibernated grass were showing, I seen the leaves. There they were, waiting to be raked up and burned. It was then I realized that my laziness was my undoing. 

 

Never again will I procrastinate on winter yard work preparations....

Another warm day at PDX. 64 for a high. 

 

The cool down is going to be nice. 

Seems they keep overachieving. Today was forecast to be upper 50s to around 60.

Cooler air should FINALLY take hold tomorrow. First sub-60 high of the season there?

Sorry guys I ended up getting chased around the outside of the building at work by a whacked out homeless guy on drugs...That was a first! I was mostly worried about the snot coming out of his nose as he is screaming that he was going to kill me and everyone in the building for “abducting his cat and then murdering it” I could almost see the COVID flowing from his mouth. Anyway he got tased by the cops and hauled away. That really cut into my forum time! 
 

So I might see some snow...How about that!! 

Michael Myers?!?  That just Crazy! Glad you were able to stay ahead of him

Gfs has been pretty consistent with the runs in the last 24 hours. Not joining the cold train as much as the other models still. :( 

Yeah, no changes yet with the GFS.

Even the GFS solution would be pretty chilly.

Either way a record warm October is being taken off the table, so that’s always nice.

Absolutely. I'm not complaining.

No worries, mother nature might just be saving the cold anomalies until they're useful to us this time instead of one of the precious few coming through when we can't get any snow.

00z ECMWF in 1 hour 29 minutes

As far as the small details, I am guessing that the GFS is trending towards the Euro and Canadian.  I say that because the Spokane AFD mentioned that the Euro and Canadian have the surface low a bit further north than the GFS, and have trended their forecast for slightly less snow for Spokane but more for the Cascades, which is what the Euro and Canadian have been showing.

So the 0Z run of the GFS and the NAM have also shown more snow for the Cascades than previous runs, more in line with the Canadian and Euro.  May not be significant differences in the bigger details, but could make a bigger difference for "my backyard".
