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.

This thing took a horse's trot to get from The Calapuya divide to Springfield. Cottage Grove got to 46F or so about 1-2PM. Then Creswell about 5PM and then it hopped the Row-Willamette divide into Dexter-Lowell at about 6PM and then finally hit Goshen at about 10PM before coming into Springfield and Eugene proper just before midnight.

They're fuckked. This is a super warm and juicy airmass now. A lot of pineapple into the bottom part of this regional pina colada.

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.

-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 winter saved it all up for February. Unreal.

10.5" of snow for yesterday...new all-time daily record for my station (records since Dec 2010). 

Nice! Up to about 8.5" now at last measurement, have likely had some settling as well.

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 

Can't say for sure yet, but I think we'll see higher regional 24 and 48 hour totals from this.

I don't think anyone saw over a foot on 1/6/2004.

At last measure yesterday morning it was 22". Probably up over 2ft now. This light fluffy fairy dust stuff settles very quickly.

Not going to try to read all the posts while I last checked in! Sounds like everyone is seeing snow now.

Here on the King/Snohomish County line in Shoreline there is a smidge over 2". Traveling around tonight was an experience from city to city. Took an hour about to get from my last stop in Redmond to home. -10 minutes at the store. 

 

24* here currently!

Looking at the HRRR evolution, the other thing blocking the establishment of southerlies through the valley is that a secondary surface low is budding off along the front and pushing across central Oregon through the early morning hours.  This is a crazy strange pattern.

Climbing by tenths now, up to 31.9.  Feeling lucky to be just outside the damage zone on this one.

The best I can tell I've gotten 1.2" so far, but that's barely better than a guess.  Some drifts in the 6 to 10 inch range though.  Coming down pretty good right now and 23 degrees.

Going to get a burst of strong westerlies through the south valley around 4 am.  Hopefully not too much through the ice zone farther north.

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.

Went back and forth between sleet and snow for a bit but now precip turned up another notch here and just vomiting snow out of the sky now. Not sure my area right now can support 100% snow with lighter precip. I seem to be right on that sleet/snow line here. Fortunately the precip rate here has been great, mostly staying as snow. Hopefully the mid levels cool a hair in the coming hours.

Pics are slow to load, lol.

I saw some interesting observations traveling over 20 miles or so. Redmond less than an inch - maybe an inch. It was hard to tell because the wind was whipping the powdery snow around a lot. Just as cold out there than here. In Kirkland, Kenmore there was probably closer to 1.5", not as much wind, but still noticeable. Lake Forest Park to here, the winds are calmer and there is a bit more snow. So I think the models did pin point that dry east flow pretty good.

Yeah, becoming more optimistic that we can stay on the snow side of this thanks to the rates. If so, good chance a lot of Clark County goes into the double digits and maybe over a foot.

I’m not loving the fact that this storm has already paralyzed parts of south metro and Marion County and still has several hours to go. But then again, many areas are doing great with snow. Here it’s heavy sleet, but we’ve still get a few inches of snow under a layer of ice.

Going to be a lot of nasty damage from this in Clackamas and Marion Counties especially. Probably going to see some 1.25"+ ice accumulations verify. Twice the hassle and none of the fun of snow.

Did y'all end up with a sub-freezing high? EUG missed out by a few degrees and Springfield spiked to the upper 40s just before midnight to wreck our chance at a sub-40F out of this...damnn.

Switching back to more of a sleet/zr/snow profile here for about the last hour, after 3-4 hours of moderate to heavy snow. A lot of blowing and drifting but I’d say about 10” now if not pretty close to it.
 

22 degrees.

Based on current road closures looks like a band of heavy ice from Neskowin to Silverton and about 30 miles north to south.  Corvallis and Albany are OK, just light icing and starting to warm now.
