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 thinking we may get up to the 1” mark by midnight. Exciting to see all the snow reports!

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

Probably the same bias that the WRF has... and it can a big problem with the WRF.

Gotta think there must be some downsloping component at PDX given their steady drop in DPs while holding at 32 the last four hours. Hopefully temps start to drop a bit there with the heavier precip moving in

Bellingham really got screwed on the WRF. Not sure I believe it will be that bad though !!

We don't exist according to many on here. "Everyone" is getting snow lol

You know it’s bad when south hill in Puyallup is getting snow. They might end up with two feet by Sunday 😆

If drying in the atmosphere is weaker the totals would be much higher in Seattle.  

Yeah, it's highly variable. But I've been thinking 4-6" in Seattle proper as a general rule of thumb since Tuesday.

I-5 getting snowy in North Seattle under that band. Looks pretty good for that area to right now on radar.

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.

 

In the past hour our temp bumped up to almost 35 and then dropped suddenly to 31. Kind of interesting. Down to 24 now at Detroit, my friends weather station at Crooked River Ranch is down to 12.9 right now, amazing event for him over there.

Heavy sleet now. Maybe getting closer to snow? 

Sleet can be interesting. We had 4" with a storm in January 2007 when I was living in Oklahoma. I wouldn't recommend sledding on it though, hurts pretty bad when you wipe out.

I don’t think it’s the downslope.  We’re calm here and so is Larch.  Not much of a slopover signal.  It’s mainly the fact the source air mass isn’t particularly cold, only an eight degree gradient between PDX and DLS, and they have a saturated air mass.

That said, if we could manage some decent precip rates they’ll wet bulb into the upper 20’s pretty easily.

At least it is starting to make the landscape kind of white like snow.

Had 5” inches of it in Philly. Was kind of fun and weird to shovel and drive in it.

No sticking on the cement here in Lake City, or maybe I haven't looked hard enough. Either way, light snow and about 29F. No winds.

Where are you in Lake City? I’m around 117th and 35th. Sticking on the street and driveways.

Seemed like several people I knew got hurt messing around in it. Was super weird, we had about 6 hours of freezing rain, temp dropped into the low 20s and it switched to sleet, I assumed it would transition quickly to snow, never did.

Down to 30 at SLE, I'm pretty sure PDX will get into the 20s once heavier precip arrives.

No way, literally eight blocks away from you. I guess there might be more heat within the concrete around my house since it's exposed to sunlight nearly all day. I'll check outside again...

Nice! Maybe we’ll bump into each other one day. And yeah, my area of 117th is heavily shaded, would make sense for surface temps to be lower where I am.

The GFS looked okay, I'd be happy if it verifified like that. Just hope the euro is better, and birch bay gets snowed on so I dont end up camping in the winter snowless 😂

I correct what I said earlier, after further inspection 35th is covered in a thin veil of white.

And you'll probably see me strolling around one day. In fact, we've probably seen each other plenty of times without realizing it. Small world.

I wonder what it is like up on Roosevelt and 90th, I believe its close to 380ft at Reservoir Park.
