First snow of the year! Melting quick but at least a little left. Was down south picking up a new family member. 

Beautiful morning in the Blue Mountains of eastern Oregon. It was 12F when I took these pics around 8:30am. Gotta get our winter fix somehow.

Major shift on the 12z EPS to lower heights over the West with rising heights in the SE compared to the 00z last night. Looking like a really fun mid month on through the Holidays. Perfect timing IMO!

2010-2011 was a very strong La Nina that was worlds different than this one. That one kicked into gear in Oct for us. I had 70" of snow that Nov and another 60" that Dec. Then a Jan shutout before Feb and March went crazy. Finished the season with 330" at my house which was a top 5 all time winter.  Only at 26" currently on the season. Some areas of California are still sitting at 0" precip for this winter. While Dec 2010 had juicy AR's slamming Southern Cal. 

Even in 2010 I kept alternating between snow and rain. I think when school was out mid month I had an AR or two dump rain in K-Falls, then back to snowstorms at the end of the year. Nice balance of weather.

Also had an AR in February before we started getting blizzards.

On the 18z GFS,  the northern extent of the ridge over the central CONUS is more zonal than meridional compared to the 12z GFS, this leads to a less amplified solution not allowing the shortwave within the 500mb trough to tilt negative compared to 12z.

18z still keeps it fairly cool next weekend. If not for that annoying cut off low things could get downright decent.

How did your area do in March 2011 for snow? I ended up with 120" at my house that month and the storms kept getting colder and stronger the further you went into the month which was a little unusual.

I had an insane number of days I observed snow falling, but not a significant total at my place. Lots of wets (happens a lot in early Spring) and for the most part I think the snow that happened at night time made a bigger difference. My notes below... I've had way snowier Marches (15.2" in 2012! or 9.0" in 2019)

Only around double normal March snowfall. But crazy list of days though.

120"!? How do you deal with that?

Honda snow blower for the win!

Feb 2019 we had 142"

March 2018 we had 102"

Jan 2017 we had 136"

The record is 238" back in Jan 1916. I think that amount would be to much to handle for sure. 

Also I would think that by the time March 1952 rolled around I would have been in a panic on where to put the snow. 

Dec 1951 - 106"

Jan 1952 - 195"

Feb 1952 - 56"

March 1952 -127" Like seriously WTF

Feb 2019 and Dec 2015 locked horns with our greatest snows. Feb 1938 had 39.0" and then 2019 comes in second place with 33.4" at a cocorahs site. Dec 2015 came in 4th/5th spot at 33.1". There are no examples of anything over 40" in Dec (I'm sure there were a few in the late 1800's). January 2017 was big here but ranks a bit lower because we've had more January snowstorms than any other winter month. Still should have been a top-10 tier though. 29.5" that month. Jan 1950 is our all-time snowiest month of the year at 56.5".

Holy crap!  the 12z ECMWF and 12Z WRF both show me getting 6 or more inches of snow here early next week.  This is the time of year we can pull it off without a major cold airmass in place or an Arctic front.  The ECMWF shows some baroclinicity with the system.  Shades of Dec 1974 perhaps.

What a wonderful climate. Do you get thunderstorms often during the summer as well?

So we're just going to ignore the 18z then? ;)

Snow loves to melt here between storms and doesn't stay around long.

I had a 20+ inch depth only once over a period of 10 years in this area. It looks like it does that every other time it snows there. 🤪

What a wonderful climate. Do you get thunderstorms often during the summer as well?

Spring time we usually get about 3 Thunderstorm days. Summer time Monsoon we get 3-12 days of Thunderstorms.

We occasionally get extremely deep hail in the summer time storms. I had 9" of hail on the level back in 2015 that stayed around for two days!

Does anyone have the 18Z ECMWF frames for the storm?  

Has not come out yet and the 18Z run only goes out to 90 hours for the surface maps which just gets us to Sunday evening.

18z GFS surface obs for SEA show three day with highs below 40 and several freezing low temps now.  The plot thickens!

FWIW the 12z ECMWF surface obs showed McChord plunging to 15 after the snowstorm.

The mid/late summer months tend to be better especially east of Tahoe in the Washoe Valley/Virginia/Silver City area/s, and again east of DT Reno (east towards area/s like Patrick, Fernley and Pyramid Lake).

Another area for good storms in the Truckee/Reno areas is NW of DT Reno along the east crest of the Sierra between Truckee and NE into the Verdi to Portola area/s along the CA/NV border/s.

I would say a dozen days where I can hear thunder for an hour or more. Probably 6 thunder days with precip. Most summer days here are a cloudless 82F in the afternoon and upper 30's low 40's at night

Both the ECMWF and WRF showed 925mb temps below zero.  With heavy precip rates that's a go for snow.  If a baroclinic zone actually sets up with heavy precip rates I think there will be snow at least down to couple hundred feet.
