Any idea on the impact to North Kitsap with this feature?  Been really quiet here the last few hours.

There's some returns coming from Victoria that may clip you guys as it moves to the SE

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.

Upcoming pattern is pretty much ideal for accelerating the NPAC eastern boundary current and dropping the PDO/PMM indices.

Pretty sure it's over at my location, been quiet for a while. Temp up to 33 now, snow sliding off cars.

All in all, very happy that we got at least one snowstorm this winter! My husky-lab mix is thrilled and refuses to come in when I take her out.

Eugene has always been a little south of many of the more impactful Portland/Seattle events. Just the nature of the beast since they're so far from the gorge. When there's more shallow, low level based arctic air like this it tends to lead to the crazier totals up north. 

So essentially no, we aren't part of any region. I feel like it's hard to understand the differences until one lives here. When I was younger I had no idea how different the weather was here until I came here for college. It really does feel like a tiny area that is its own, benign biome.

This post makes me happy. 😁 The changing daylight is very noticeable now..an ominous sign that the season of evil is approaching. 

If we could trade places for a summer that would be awesome... You get the temperate, mild summer you've always dreamed of, I get thunderstorms on a regular basis. The summers are comfortable here, but absolutely dull for the vast majority of those four months, save for some cute nocturnal storms that last an hour or so once every month, if that.

Sorry bud, you'll get hit again soon. Eugene is in fact pretty similar snow climo wise to Portland and Seattle, with the exception of having lower median snowfall and thus fewer events overall. Which means it's a little more feast or famine, but the averages are still close and when you get hit you tend to get hit hard. This was a roughly a once in a decade style event with such a sharp low level boundary (December 2008, January 1998, January 1980, December 1968).

There’s nothing over us on radar and it’s still dumping. Looks like it’s going to move in from the north too. This is getting very serious now! 30 degrees currently...might be another sub freezing high.

You had probably the most impactful winter storm in the last decade there two years ago.  Major highways closed for over a week.  Amtrak stuck in Oakridge for 36 hours.  Certainly comparable to what the Salem area saw last night.  Not sure I would call your microclimate "benign" - although the Gorge does predispose PDX to a certain kind of windy icy snow a bit more often.

Tacoma and Olympia really won with this one. Thought for sure Kitsap would do better than 8", but I'm not complaining! Did the east wind screwhole not come to fruition after all?

Eugene seems like a place for those Californian transplants who dislike the rain, but also the unlivable heat of the desert SW (110+). I consider the Willamete Valley to be somewhat transitional w/ regards to Hadley cell climatology from north to south, with the south end (Eugene) representing more of a desert climate for 4-5 months out of the year, though whether this places it outside of our climate zone is debatable. Arguably, Eugene is the most accurate representation of a Mediterranean climate zone out of every major city in the PNW, with its warm and dry summers, and its mild, exceedingly rarely snowy winters. In Seattle during years with bad summers, they simply manifest an oceanic climate by definition.

I wish the dynamics of our events were studied a bit better. I feel like they aren't as focused on since there aren't as many people here so the nature of many of those types of events eludes me. And I don't understand what blowing snow or drifting is...I've never experienced it. Only wet snow like 2-25-19 (which was a very borderline setup).

It's the same when you are down here in Medford it has it's own microclimate.

Got out to Winco and Safeway this morning. Grabbed some groceries for the neighbors. Only two registers open at Winco, but there was hardly anyone shopping. 

Stuck going up my driveway...dangit! Need some snow tires after all. Neighbors worked with me for 25 minutes to get it up to my unit. 

Have yet to see a snowflake bigger than pea sized. Still snowing now, albeit not that hard. My earlier measurement of 7'' may have been understated, as I'm seeing some less wind-blown parts around my development have probably 8-10''.

I've gotta think Roseburg is just about the worst "inland" spot for winter weather since it's technically an open river basin from the Cascades to the ocean, like the Rogue. They were close to or at 50F almost all day yesterday.

I would assume that since the Rogue has to go through that insane Kalmiopsis canyon that takes longer for marine air to move up through because it's more narrow and takes longer to get through than the Umpqua.

I’m ready to sing PGE’s graces because power is back on way ahead of schedule. Anyhow this storm left behind a royal mess, that’s for sure. Lots of problems across NW Oregon. SW Portland was lucky enough to get enough snow to make it pretty but avoiding most of the heavy ice. Unfortunately not the case most other places.
