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.

Now I'm back in the center of Redmond where the snow is still going. Goes from nothing to steady light snow between NE 20th and NE 30th.

Returns from the Kitsap Peninsula moving directly towards me. That place has been a snow machine today for my location.

I'm enjoying your analyses since I - like you - don't have much in the way of actual weather to report.  Willamette Pass (5300') is 27 degrees, Santiam Pass (4800') is 8 degrees.

We've lost our down-valley gradient, and with it the wind.  Eugene 1010 mb, Corvallis 1010.5, Salem 1010.5, Wilsonville 1011.  Am thinking the south valley might just hang out near or just above freezing overnight.

Picked up another two tenths with the last band of rain, up to 0.49" - hopefully headed up to the snow weenies in PDX 🙂

It is an interesting setup. Detroit is down to 25 now, and there is quite a bit of new snow there per cams. They are actually about the same elevation as me, but being tucked back in the mountains get a lot more snow. I'm guessing the mountains to the south are blocking them from whatever mid-level warm layer there is.

UKMEt looking good for the south island tonight...8.6 inches in the 10:1 ratio so I'm assuming that would be closer to 10 or 11 inches with the appropriate ration.

Strange to see PDX up to 34 on the 8:30 observation. 

Back down to 32 on the 8:40 update.

I apologize if this makes me a terrible human.

I'm sorry Kolk. For some reason that was the first thing that popped into my head.  UTC is 8 hours ahead of PST. 21z is 9pm UTC, minus 8 hours is 1pm PST.

Actually it’s not over kitsap peninsula. 

I keep hinging bets on green returns, so ya, might not even be over here now, radar shows more green heading more westerly towards me now which could work out great for many others if it rotates around the southern slopes of the Olympics and holds together.

It's gone quite a ways north with the precip shield but only a tiny bit to the east, closely hugging the sound:

Looks like it will. Radar looks decent for another light coating for Bainbridge/Seattle/Shoreline area.

Yeah been noticing that too.  I hate how much environment canada depends on the rgem/gem...you may have noticed how their forecast kept flip flopping today all based on the RGEM fluctuations lol.  

Their winter storm watch seems reasonable at this point i think. 2-6”

I’d toss the UKMET. It’s an outlier at this point. May have some terrain bias that we’re unaware of.

Definitely interesting.  There may be no mid-level warm layer that far east, looks like the 0c 850mb line is just east of your place and dropping off quickly toward the Cascade crest.  The east-side cold pool must be just deep enough to reach pass level and seep through, but not enough to drive significant east winds through the gaps and valleys.  There is no 700 mb temperature gradient and streamlines at that level are strongly westerly. 

Stable at 33.7.  This is reminding me of January 2017 which buried Portland and gave me a lot of 33 degree rain.

Not sure I would put too much faith into the UKMET, it's probably overdoing the downsloping.

Yeah i cant imagine how strong E winds would have to be for it to end up like that

I too am excited for the 00Z Euro— we’ll see if PDX legit has a shot at over 6 inches of snow.
