You might be due down there... but I have doubts that this November will be seriously wet.    Blocky theme so far this fall.   I do think there will be 2-week stretch of wet weather though. 

Quite a blocky ride in September and October 2006 as well. Culminating in the Halloween cold here.

Only rained about 4" here those months. Then it rained over 6" here in the wonderful November 5-7 deluge 🤩😍🥰😊❤️💕💗😻

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

Fascinating.    Good luck with that.

I'm sure we all have stories about this night.

My dad got stuck on Hwy 522 in Maltby on the way home from work, but at least he could listen to the game!

This GFS run says the trick or treaters are getting wet!

The GFS now says they are staying dry...

Quickly recover though by the end of the run... also interesting that it shows 2 major hurricanes which is pretty rare for November.

That Pacific cyclone off Mexico looks interesting.

Side note: I wonder if Hawaii will get any strong storms this season? @Phil?

I had about 16” of snow on the ground with temps falling into the mid teens that evening. No power. Trees down everywhere. It was epic.

We had a wet snow shower at some point, so pretty much the same.😍

Yeah... it was pretty ironic to be playing the Packers in the snow at home.

ECMWF keeps shifting north and east with each run with the heaviest snow tomorrow... the 12Z run does not even show the central Cascades and Snoqualmie Pass getting much at all.     Previous runs also showed Pullman being buried (tracking for my son) and the last couple runs have shown the heaviest snow farther north over there.   Looks pretty snowy for Spokane now.

North wind was wild and took out our electricity as the front went through! 
When I left for work the following morning people were still trying to get home from the evening commute before!   Crazy fun night!

It will probably change up until the actual event. October 9th, 2019 was suppose to be light snow or snow flurries. Parts of Spokane got 5-6 inches of snow.

Nah like, I genuinely am bummed for you that you didn't get your first freeze yet. Apologies if that came across as condescending.

PDX was never expected to get a freeze with this pattern. 36 was actually a decent overachievement. Still managed to score a freeze IMBY though.

12Z ECMWF brings more energy over the ridge next week... wetter for WA than the GFS.

Euro looks like it’s going to try something interesting for the end of the month. Would be a big improvement on the stale ridging the GFS has advertised for that period.

Change in the ECMWF appears to be related to that low cutting off much further west over the Pacific.  Could be its cut-off bias coming into play.   Time will tell.
