No idea this was going to happen today! Mcminnville  

Some pics on the way up to my property.  The ones on the road are 1/4 mile down the road and the gate is the beginning of my 120 acre land.

Doesn't look like 18z is going to be as good in the long range.

Reverts to past runs where the trough axis is a bit to far offshore.

You should do alright for a few days if this verified.  It looks like it evolves into total craziness late in the run with quite warm temps with a southwesterly flow.

Today is one of those days the fog didn’t burned off and is still lingering also 39 degrees.

Medford is in fact one of the foggiest cities in the Pacific Northwest, simply because your area gets so many inversions in the winter.

It's called clown range for a reason.

Yeah, the 12z had that trough mid/late week dropping right over the PNW, this run it stays offshore and just pumps moisture onshore. Looks like after a day or two snow levels drop at least below pass levels.

Insane. I've been in 30 below and it feels cold water rushing in through any zipper on the clothing. 

My lowest experienced is -15F while in Moses Lake once. It was chilly.

38.6°F currently after a high of 42°F at midnight.
 

Weather station is up and running, looking forward to watching temps drop this week. Temp estimates from apps all suggest it’s 41°F to 43°F up here currently, so excited to have more accurate temps (cooler) for my property!

You are so tucked back in the dark there... I imagine its always cooler there than all of the surrounding stations.   Its 43 in North Bend right now.

On a positive note, it looks like the offshore ridge is trying to re-establish itself closer to our sweet spot at the end of the run.  Baby steps. 🤪

Only up to about 40 here today. Going to finally feel like winter. Looking at the models, I will either miss a lot of rain or a lot of snow next week.

The closest I’ve been to that is working in the Costco walk in freezer.  When the fans come on it’s time to get the job done quickly and get out!!! Just Brutal in there!!!  Could not imagine -73.....OUCH!

Definitely, especially in the winter. That, plus the rain intensity differences I observe over my neighborhood as you get further from the mountain, are why I thought a weather station would be worth it at my location.

You’d be surprised that we likely get more sun than many homes in our neighborhood in the summer, simply because of dense tree coverage over many homes (actually.. you’re probably not surprised).

Least snow we’ve seen in a winter since we’ve moved here half a decade ago. Here’s hoping!

Need one of those sliders between Sunday and Tuesday to bomb out, ie; Turkey Day 2019.

Yeah... the lack of snow up here has been notable so far this year.    We will probably make up ground between now and March though.  

We cut down trees that get too big... have to keep it open for sunshine when it happens!    That neighborhood back there where you live is slowly thinning out it seems as people take down trees that are a danger to their homes or they come down in windstorms.

Isn't it lower resolution past two weeks so It can't see evaluation very well?

I didn’t realize that you were responding to my post.  It looks like SHF and Brian answered your question.

I think this has the same issue but more realistic. February looks solid
