It was completely inevitable... the WRF is never going to win a disagreement with the ECMWF.   It will always cave.   

Cliff is going to have to update his blog for that 0.5" in some of the EPSL locations. I'm pretty sure he knew that wasn't going to happen but decide to regurgitate what the previous WRF was showing anyway.

West side of Olympia as of 7 PM is up to approximately 5 inches and still snowing steadily. 

I've been a part of several weather forums for the past 15 years and they more or less run the same. There is discussion among individuals with a large range in knowledge about weather and then there'

My front door in Troutdale this morning. Last night was incredible with 45-55 mph gusts for many hours. I'm on a hill around 300' directly facing east.

This is my 2 year olds first snowstorm. We did it all today. Sled, snowman, snowballs. She refused to come inside when we needed her to.

 

Same here. So much fun to see their excitement. Mine was so hungry afterwards he ate too much and then barfed on me when I was putting him down for a nap.

Picked up 0.5" of snow so far. The snow definitely has a dry feeling to it and easily swept by wind which leads me to believe that this will be a high ratio snow event. Here's California Ave in West Seattle

Seeing more snow down your way yet? Easily the heaviest snow of the event so far right now here.

It’s like 80% snow now, but I can still hear little clinks of sleet falling too. Whatever it is it’s coming down pretty heavy.

I wonder if I’m far enough south and east to be getting some residual warm tongue action.

Yea it’s overdoing the east winds cause it’s only showing me getting 4-5 inches and I’m at 2.5 already.

2.5" really?  I'm at 1/2" here in the valley

Looks about 0.5" now. This isn't your typical "build a snowman" type of snow... this is the sledding/skiing/snowboarding powder stuff. Really cool for this late in the season.

SNOW. WASHINGTON COUNTY.

Will be closely monitoring over the next few hours. There seems to be sleet still mixed in, but it’s accumulating. Wonderful news.

Also look at that radar. The amount of moisture we have to work with is awesome to put it bluntly. Hope you (with all the kindness in the world lol) get absolutely buried with snow tonight.

Snowing at a good rate now.  Pretty much coming down sideways and the ground is finally getting white.  Down to 24 now.

Been lurking for awhile, first time poster. Tracking the storms as they come through has been super interesting to pay attention to.

 Sticking pretty good in West Seattle, haven't gone back outside to check how much since I put my kids to bed but sidewalks and my street are completely covered now.

Keep in mind that with dry snow and high snow ratios snowflakes tend to be smaller that you would see with wet snow because dry snow is less likely to stick together. In those heavier bands, you may just witness a large amount of small snowflakes falling rapidly. Think Midwest style.

My last walk confirmed this, my foot prints from an hour ago were gone and it was just tiny snowflakes, I am being a weenie!  🌭
