Looks like PDX just kissed 💋 32 for the afternoon before dropping a bit. Still only 30 for a high here. We’ll see if either of those hold thru midnight.

Yeah, back to 31.5 here with steadier rain starting. Not good.

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.

33.9 and dropping. Not expecting anything though.

Family members in the greater PDX area have all lost power as well as got it back today.  Currently two in separate areas are back down again.  Lake Oswego two transformers blew a few minutes ago.  Must be fireworks for Valentines Day! 
 

Didn’t check maps yet but did south winds kick in causing this all the sudden round of outages down there?

Streaming DFW TV News on historic cold and storm.  Every county in Texas under winter storm warning.  My son b has snow in Brownsville in south Texas.  Crazy cold and wind chills.

Not many, December 2008, January 1980,  late January 1969, late December 1968, March 1951 (though that was from different little storms), mid January 1950, January 1943... probably it for the airport era.

Did 2008 deliver 10"+ to both in the same 36 hour period like this, though? And SEA only measured 8.8" in Jan 1980, per WRCC.

Low. Solar.

Another piece of evidence that the melting has started...My rain gauge is starting to register the snow melt.

yeah same here except I'm showing .07"  It actually registered .02" while it was still snowing.

Does anyone have ZR?

Looks like its misting or drizzling across most of the Seattle area and temps are at or below freezing in many places.    Its 29 here and I see precip over my area on the radar but don't see any snowflakes under the light.

What is currently the total depth?

Right at 10" depth. 

I got 8" from the first storm, 1" yesterday afternoon, and 4" today so 13" total.IMG_20210214_132455.thumb.jpg.1c2cd8aa33f0bc5995b4464d5fa0d8cc.jpg

29.8 with light rain here and the east wind continuing. Have a decent glaze on everything now.

The melt is definitely on here, although with a 33.7/32.2 spread it's not too bad as it could be. Picked up 0.34" in the rain bucket, but I haven't looked to see whether it's completely melted out of there. We had some incredibly heavy snow at about 34F earlier in the day that dropped about 1.5", but most of the day it really wasn't accumulating as the temps warmed. Current snow depth is about 7" after getting 10.5" total from the storm.

In honor of this snow event I will be retiring the Washington County donut hole profile pic. How about a nice ponderosa and sugar pine forest instead.

How much did you end up with total? Highs and lows since Thursday?

I don't have a PWS, but I measured with a ruler several times. All temps are from HIO. We are closer to the Gorge than HIO so temps here were probably a bit colder.

Thursday was 40/28 with a midnight high. Started as rain and then as the Arctic air filtered in, it turned to ZR giving everything a coating of ice, and then to snow. Accumulated about 2" overnight.

Friday was 29/25. Most of the daylight hours it was ZR/sleet but then switchover to dry powder after sunset. Accumulated 4-5" overnight.

Saturday was 34/24. Total snow for the event was 6-7" here, plus two layers of ice that got mixed in to the pack.

Sounds like it ended up being a pretty decent event out that way. 6-7" is not shabby! And a high in the 20s and other forms of wintery precip.

It's been a light mix here and 32 degrees.  I just had a shower over me and it snowed for a minute.  

We come from the land of the ice and snow.

In the end, the similarities between this event and 1998 were downright eerie. Similar snowfall gradient with respect to geography as well as the fact that they both had the massive peculiarity of having thicknesses never drop below 530dm in the preceding air mass or during the entirety of the event.  Also, PDX’s high water mark for cold was the same at 24. Huge, fascinating display of local microclimates and low level dynamics.

What was the final snow depth at it's peak there?

What were the dates of that event?

Measured 13 inches yesterday morning.  Things settled quite a bit because this morning we were a bit below that despite picking up about an inch overnight.

Plus this one was about a month plus later and much closer to the margin of this sort of setup being climatologically possible/probable. Which scores it extra weird/impressive points.

January 10-12.

I think it got a little chilly and we might have had an inch or two but my memory of that time is very vague so it must have not been memorable up here

My wife thinks the broken snow shovel is funny as hell now.  She’s arrogantly claiming that she’s entirely responsible and she’ll accept tokens of appreciation via Venmo or PayPal.

There were definitely differences too.  This one was much more dynamic with its Pacific influence.
