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'

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

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.

Looks heavy up near Everett and Marysville. Determined to make the ECMWF correct.

I'm just east of Marysville and it's still just light tiny flakes like it has been all night.  No wind either.

I have never accumulated so much snow while waiting for an "event" before.

The heavy returns haven't reached me yet.  Maybe a half an hour or so it looks like  But, I already have two inches on the ground and it is coming down good.  Can't wait to to some heavier stuff.  If it never increased but snowed all night long as it is now, I would still have probably 8 inches.  This i going to be epic.

Much of Marion County is out of power rn, so reports are spotty. Lots of .50+ inch reports in Clackamas County though.

It's amazing looking at some of the pictures and see how bright it is... you'd think it's daytime. It's nothing like that here with the lighting but it's still quite bright!

Approaching an inch now! 

I might have half an inch now if I cheat a little.  Hitting the sack hoping things will look a bit better in the morning.

I really think 6-10 is going to be the norm around the Central Sound by Noon tomorrow. The good stuff hasn't even gotten here and we're already close to 2" in Seattle with another 10-12 hours to go.

It looks like the main frontal band is going to fall as ZR in the Salem area, which could add another half inch in the next few hours.  Not good.

The wedge block in the radar is a little annoying in the North Sound. I don't know if it's from a tree blocking the beam (I'm joking) or some other weird technical issue, but anytime I want to look at the radar I'm blocked from actually seeing what's actually coming from the west. During the heaviest rains it seems to disappear, but tonight it seems particularly bad.

Pretty robust precip pushing onshore, definitely a historic ice event for many.

Very nice! Good to see the switch over happening down there. 

Yeah just nice to have a good regional event, especially in a winter that had been a real let down. Glad you guys up north are getting good stuff too.

This is why I feel like it’s a bad idea to use EUG to base the city of Springfield’s historical records off of. We are way more susceptible to the effects coming off the triple point of the Willamette, Umpqua, & Siuslaw basins and it hops the Calapuya Divide between Drain into Cottage Grove and the Row (pronounced like "ow!! my toe!!")"-Willamette Basin pretty easily.

BTW the stupid High and Low temps on there are bugged. It's the only shittty thing about this otherwise very solid app.

Definitely going to be the biggest PDX to YVR event since 2008. And a rare one that will deliver 6"+ over such a wide area.

Honestly, looking like this will easily surpass any single snowstorm from 2008. Regionally, at least.

Not sure how far back we'll have to go to find something comparable.

Low. Solar.

Definitely getting into the most dodgy sector of this thing in the mid levels...

The mixing associated with this line may tip us over to mostly sleet again for a time. We should be safe again up here after 2am.

Definitely been some subtle changes.  Larch went from 26 to 29 with a SSE breeze kicking in.

-10F / -20F here yesterday. I don't think I've ever seen so much below zero snowfall in my life. Another 6" yesterday.

The warmup on Monday to above zero temps can't come soon enough. Currently -17F.

This thing was kind of a two parter that blended into one continuous event for some areas, similar to the 12/20 and 12/21-22 events in 2008. Otherwise, I think the breadth of 1/6/2004 would be comparable as well

I don't like the look of this.  Gorge outflow is putting a cork in the bottle of the Willamette Valley and preventing a southerly gradient from setting up despite the low being so far north.  Not going to lose the icing until the frontal passage weakens the outflow and cools the upper levels.
