Haha, me too.  Something tells me this may end up different than shown.

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.

No idea this was going to happen today! Mcminnville

Enjoy it while you can.  Almost all of this on the westside comes in the next 24 hours.

I thought the east winds were going to prevent most precip in Puget Sound Lowlands? Gusts of 50mph possible down in North Bend tonight. Edit: Just realized this is thru Feb 10th.

Light snow now and temp is up to 33F. A slushy half inch on the roads and probably over an inch on other surfaces. Looks like there will be a final last round of moderate to heavier precip as the backedge approaches.

The NAM is showing about the same amounts in the Puget Sound area tonight thru tomorrow morning.

Just did a walk around the hood over to providence park and back. Wet snow - not really even in the ballpark of sticking but mostly snow. Was nice. Still going good. Back end approaching on radar and picking up speed. Maybe another 60/90 min or so here.

Thanks, that's what I was expecting. I had missed the range of dates on your initial post, my bad! East winds don't really roar too much up here compared to down in North Bend so looks like it'll be a fairly non-descript night out here. Fun to watch the snow reports down in Oregon and California. I've spent plenty of time in Yreka, Weed, Mount Shasta and Lassen NP, I'll be glued to the reports/webcams from there.

Radar shows precipitation over us but nothing getting to the surface so far. No east wind here at all which is surprising.

Yeah I don't think the east winds are much of a factor tonight up here, more of a lack of precipitation moving north before morning in the north sound.  If dew points and air temp are low enough we could get some I spoze.

The radar looks good here, but it has really slowed down for some reason. Stronger east wind may be eating it up now. 

I'd like to give you about 20 likes but I can't.  One will have to do.

Low dp and relative humidity may be the culprit, so the airmass is a bit dry. Even without the presence of any east wind. Radar may looked filled in but most of it is virga and tacoma is showing 72% humidity, so it’s close.

I think we will eventually see some flurries here tonight.

FWIW the 18z Euro thinks another ~1" or so in the post 4PM timeframe. But looking at radar it's not looking pretty and it's dead here now 1611723600-1YXRbEo4C0I.png

Looks like a little bit of precip is developing on the backside of the front along the central OR coast. May not be done quite yet.

18Z ECMWF shows the measureable precip just bypassing us this evening.   That does not mean there won't non-measureable precip (flurries) though. 

Top image is at 6 p.m. and bottom image is at 11 p.m.

Yup. It seems to be getting bypassed because the moisture is getting eaten up.

Drove up to around 700’ on Prune Hill where the roads were snow covered and there was about 1/2” on the grass.  Came back down to the 164th area where I am pleased to say it is sticking on the bark dust, grass and cars. Still coming down at a good clip too.

34, DP 30. East wind still going.

May still be more precip after this band and later tonight but temps should rise a bit after the steady moderate precip ends. That is pretty well advertised on most models. 

I still have about a half inch of slush and an inch on the grass. 33.3F, not really accumulating anymore. 

Just really nice to see a few hours of steady snowfall during the day after such a boring winter. Hoping there is more to come in Feb.

It was blowing pretty good on my walk but has dropped off to 6 mph now.

41/21 here in Everett currently. Will likely be flurries if the moisture can overcome the dry East winds later.

Once that main band goes through the valley snow levels will rise pretty quickly to about 2000’. Nice event. 3” in Dallas, 2” for Salem.
