Yeah the models busted over here but it ended up spreading the snow to everyone which is better. Kitsap and the canal area will do good late tomorrow. 

Wait, we have more coming tomorrow?! 33 here and slowly melting.

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.

Any other Willamette Valley locations stay above freezing all day yesterday?

Actually in some respects Eugene has done well over overachieved in the past 20 years:

1) we have arguably the strongest windstorm in the I-5 corridor (Feb 2002)

2) by far the coldest temps in a arctic airmass (Dec 2013)

3) got 19” of snow in three days out of borderline airmass

4) worst ice storm until yesterday 

5) insane firestorm

6) quarter sized hail May 2006


Save for relative lack of thunderstorms I would say our summer weather is superior to any location north of here.

of course I would like more of all the above except the fires

If we could just fix the homeless population problem that would be great.  So many tents popped up all over the place in town.

Wow, NWS Seattle just reported that Ocean Shores received 12" of snow. I'm not sure I remember that ever happening before.

I would really like to know where they got that erroneous number.

But what about sub-freezing highs? Seems odd to have gone so long without one.

And of course since Storm King, Eugene holds the most hallowed of snowfall records.

Besides Bellingham and Portland, Eugene is the only other non-village to have high temp in single digits in this corridor.  So I’m not worried.  When was the the last time PDX had high in teens?

Are we "due" for a massive regional arctic airmass that digs this far south? I feel like 2-25-19 was not overly Arctic in nature. So would Jan 2017 be the last time?

Snow finally eased up...little over 13” here. Interested to see if we get more later today.

I had 13.8 in Jan 2017, maybe that counts??  It's borderline since I can get down in the 17-19 range with run-of-the-mill dry offshore flow in the winter, even with non-arctic air aloft.  I'd say back to December 2013, but then we had 8.8 in a real arctic airmass in December 2009, and 11 in December 2008.  Definitely has become less common of late, though with the decade-scale PDO oscillation we might return to a period when it is more common.

I like arctic air, but our house/plumbing isn't really built for it, and as a gardener it knocks out the artichokes and overwintering vegetable crops.  So I'm just as happy without it, but do like to get some snow :-).

A bit baffling here at 370' East Gig Harbor only 2000' from end of Colvos passage and across from the end of Vashon and we have 11".  We don't usually do very well with snow here, when I drive to work or my Dad's in Port Orchard there's usually twice as much snow there.  Not very far from North Tacoma which sounds like they did way better than normal.  It's now almost 32 but was 25 until this morning.

Looks like radar returns are increasing to the west of here out in the Olympics. May get some snow in a couple hours again.

It will happen at some point.  What we are most overdue for is a massive windstorm.  The Puget Sound area had their Hanukkah Eve storm.  Aside from that the west side valleys haven’t had much wind.

Can someone explain the effect that has been happening in the north sound? Very curious what is causing the precip to form like that.

Looks to me like essentially the same deformation band that gave Seattle all the snow last night slipped North this afternoon and has likely been enhanced by some convergence. Precip tends to really intensify in that part of the North Sound as convergence sets up very easily.

About 7-8” and some flurries moving through. We tend to warm up quite early in these sorts of situations so I’m not holding out hope for tomorrow, but I’m super happy with what we got!

Did a lap on XC skis around the neighborhood which was quite fun.

No offense but there is not 20 inches of snow in union.  Looks about like 12 or so on roofs. 

I'm not there.. So can't confirm.  He told me he measured 18 in the driveway.  Regardless it's a lot!  I told him not to shovel but he didn't listen

I wonder if GH and North Tacoma did way better than normal because of that?

That actually does look like about 18" where he shoveled.  Probably lost a bit on the roofs from the wind and tiny flakes.

I love the views from that area of Tacoma.  The slope of the land makes it so a lot of houses have great views.

Yeah, the lots are set up so both the front and back sit on a north-south street, which helps to preserve the view. Also nice to have some space and still be in town.
