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.

I'm not sure if this was discussed on here already, but Jaya seems to think the issue with the poor modeling is that they are initializing incorrectly as they start their runs with little to no snow on the ground, which can completely throw off the temperature forecast.

If the model thinks there is 3 inches on the ground for a region, but there is actually 8-12 inches over a wide area, that is going to affect the temperatures and keep things cool a lot longer than it would if there were only 3 inches. 

So I think the models are going to be a bit useless today and tomorrow and we are just going to be flying blind with radar and satellite.

Definitely flying sort of blind the next 2 days.

Saw a couple tweets over the last 30 mins of sleet/ZR on the Kitsap peninsula, not buying it though.

Still snowing I'm Bremerton but temp has popped just above freezing in Bremerton just above the base at 128ft elevation. Very small flakes not as big as earlier. 32.9°

Snowing hard with big flakes in south Green Lake. 31.6 degrees with no sign of a mix yet. Have picked up an inch or so this morning already. 

This feels like more snow than the highest snow depth we had in 2019 at any one point.

Got a little bit more freezing rain last night. The streets are still completely snow/ice packed and now have an extra layer of ice on top. It’s up to 31 now though, so the thaw should start soon.

I am currently going through a break in precip and my temp has not budged one tenth of a degree. Sitting at 31:4.  I was convinced the temp was going to jump when the precip took a break because I have a very light SW breeze around 2-3 mph. Radar looks to pick back up soon though.

Close to 1” of new snow since midnight. I think sometime after dark it’s going to switch over here.

What is the best site for showing current dew points and wind directions within the state.  Preferably a site with a nice number of readings. The few I found are rather lacking.

I'm a bit surprised why an advisory wasn't issued for bremerton/Kitsap area. We already have an inch. Yeah temp is just above freezing at my place but it is soooo snowing pretty decently

Interestingly... the 12Z ECMWF shows the east wind going strong until about 7 a.m. tomorrow.

Got a feeling that changeover is going to be later here. 29* here.

Snow on the ground can affect temperature, but it won't be a factor for whether precip is snow/freezing rain.

DP is 29.0

Its a snow globe out there!! 
Will probably be losing internet and TV signal soon. Will have to go out with my light changing pole again and beat the internet dish. The TV dish is way too high up on the roof to get to however.

Sounds like the end is almost near here. All snow still...figured it’d hold out longer but I’m having doubts now.

I think that areas north of I-90 will wind up being the big winners today. That east wind will hopefully abate much of the projected changeover from making it much further north. Though I could be wrong. Seattle will probably start changing over in the next couple of hours in places.

Absolutely ridiculous air mass for the southern plains right now. Tons of records getting destroyed.
