When @SilverFallsAndrewhas time, he is going to help set this up so it’s calibrated properly as It’s not safe for me to get up on the ladder anymore 😬.
 

To all of you on this board, thank you for keeping my spirits up. I hope we are all able to make one another’s days better with our shared love of atmospheric science. 🙏🏻

It's not too uncommon around 500' and in the PSCZ areas. Hail and graupel is more common obviously, but those same cold-core setups can produce quick snow showers as well. I would say every 6-7 years on average, but it happened far more in the -PDO era.

Snow with offshore flow in April is nearly unheard of, although some places north of Seattle pulled it off April 18-20, 2008 with an airmass that probably would have been a major arctic outbreak had it been mid-winter.

I remember April 2008 was crazy! I wasn't following the weather nearly as close as I do now and I remember having I think 3-4" fall in Mount Vernon. It also was amazing how quickly it vanished.

How often does it snow in April out there? There’s potential for some super deep troughing next month.

I got a foot of snow in May 2002. The heavier snow was between Reardan and the Deer Park area. Spokane only received a trace. I had to shovel myself out that morning. Little mesoscale lows can bust a forecast.

Oddly enough one of the worst snowstorms in Sierra history was towards the end of April 1880. 124" at Truckee 5900' is astonishing. https://www.wunderground.com/blog/weatherhistorian/the-great-california-storm-of-april-1923-1880.html

That's what I have! Any way to get it to work during a blackout? Each time the power even so much as flickers causes the station to always reset itself which takes a few minutes.  :(  I thought the display had some kind of battery backup? 🤔 I honestly don't mind feeding it batteries if there's a way too that is.   BTW: We did get to 60F today and yesterday just briefly. Our sensor is on the shed so I am not sure if that exaggerates readings but it's the only place direct sunlight doesn't hit it past noon. 

I have an ambient station so it’s a little different...For mine it runs on a battery backup so it retains all info and the display stays very dimly lit.

Since everyone else quit looking at them after the February snow! It took away the Seattle snow at hr 170 but it definitely looks better for my area by hr 200 or so!

The para GFS has a major trough a bit earlier than previous runs though not as soon as the legacy.

Big time La Niña signature in tropical forcing going forward. Subsidence smack dab over the dateline..can’t get better than this if you want -PNA.

Strongest March signal since 2011.

It's actually pretty common to see some quick snow in April in the lowlands. More common further north of course, but it's not a multi-decadal timescale event at all.

Bellingham had some quick sticking snow in April 2013 and 2011. There might have been a convergence zone that dropped something since then, but otherwise I think that was the last time lowland snow fell in April.

April 3, 1999 and April 19, 2008 are the only instances of measurable snow that I've personally seen here in Clark County during April. We also had some flakes in 2010.

This century, there was also a quick PSCZ event in early April 2007.

Up through the early 1980s, April snows used to be much more common. 1983 had some valley floor snow near you, 1982, 1981, and 1980 all had flakes fall in the lowlands. 1976 had a quick event midmonth (3" at BLI), early April 1975 had a monster trough with pockets of snow, 1972 had a nice event that gave SEA its latest measurable snow on the 16th-17th, 1970 had some flakes, 1968 had a big mid-month event in the PSCZ (9"+ in some areas), 1967 had some flakes, 1966 had some areas of snow. You get the idea.

The Portland area's latest measurable event actually came in 1961 after a totally snowless winter. There was a large deformation zone parked over us on the 22nd, with a quick 1-3" of snow that morning. PDX had a high of 43 that day while in Spokane it was 62. Funky pattern.

Great stuff thanks! That is definitely more than I realized. The house I was in contract to buy in spring 2011 was up around 2200’ or so on the ridge between the Butte Creek and Molalla River drainages (about a mile from the old Sundown Ranch weather station that recorded from roughly 1931-1955). There were some decent accumulations even in late April up there that year. In the end the place needed too

much work. Still need to drive up there and see if it survived the fire.

March is a variable month. I've seen snow, graupel, hail, rain, and sunshine all during the same day. If you have a warm and sunny period in March, you often have troughing afterward. Sometimes the troughing is deep. I don't think Tim will be too alarmed at some March troughing.

I'll be honest, Tim has been chill AF of late. Props to him.

00Z EPS was more zonal in the 10-15 day period.    It seems to be trending away from the strong 'cold west / warm east signal locking in and moving towards less amplification.   

This would probably be typical chilly and wet March weather... rather than epic cold.

Ambient is just another brand.  I have an ambient station as well, but I have a different model of screen that does not have batteries in it for backup.  I've thought about getting a little UPS for mine.

Dude... if we are talking about epic cold in the next 10 days then I expect to see something big on the EPS at this point.    I thought it was worth checking out.   It looks like lots of chilly, wet weather to me.

Oh yes. Chilly wet weather for sure. Epic cold in March? Lol, not gonna happen. 

It has happened.   Maybe it will this month.   But at some point the EPS has to get on board or it probably won't happen.

How often does it snow in April out there? There’s potential for some super deep troughing next month.

I'm gonna go ahead and just call it and say that we are going to get buried, and it will happen when we are trying to move, because.....well there is this guy Murphy, and he has these laws...and he LOVES me!

 

No confirmation if/when on the move, I had a first interview yesterday with their HR, and it went well.  These folks were blown away with my resume and basically said they wanted to create a position because they want my skillset.  It sounds like its a great company to work for and would be flexible me while we relocate.

It's just so weird how things work.  I can't remember if I mentioned last week, but right after I got the invitation to interview with this firm back east, I got a "thanks but no thanks" for a job out here that I was very definitely qualified for, and it would have been a dream job (working for one of the private industry space firms).  Fate/Gods/higher powers (whatever your belief) are sending some pretty strong signals this is the path for me.

 

On the weather front, 37 here and looks like we will see some sun today.  Currently 16 in Portsmouth NH under a wind advisory with winds out of the WSW.

GFS is going to be a huge step back in the long range unfortunately. Score one for the EPS. :(

Ended up with a 57/39 spread yesterday. Had a low of 42 this morning in Tacoma. 
 Hung out at deception pass last night before getting on the ferry to orcas yesterday evening. Got down to the upper 30s here this morning by the water.

I‘ve had a few those weird “fate” like moments. Whether it’s the subconscious mind or something else, I have learned not to ignore it. Probably wouldn’t be here otherwise. 😂

Anyway, if you do move to coastal NH, you’re gonna have the most awesome weather on this forum, by far. That climate is amazing.

Well... This sucks. :( Guess I will just have to enjoy pleasant and mild spring weather. We've gotten used to it over the past 7-8 years.

Warm spring = lots of mild sunshine and sitting in the backyard.

Cold spring = ideal skiing conditions last well into spring.

It's a win either way.
