For a Nina March this month has been like watching paint dry. Pretty dry and seasonably cool. We've had seasonable airmasses and a lot of clear skies at night basically. 

After todays rain it looks dry and coolish for a couple more days. Rinse and repeat after that.

Cold air is FLOODING in today. PDX up to 52 with WSW winds after an INSANE band of light rain. Wow!!!!

Wonder if they will get a sub-50 high at any point this month. That’s like the lowest bar possible for cool March weather.

Light flakes coming down, must be upper 30's now. As long as this stuff isn't sticking yet I gotta get some air today.

So has this been the same or better than March 2012 there?

You can't go outside once it starts sticking?

That's when most people on here want to go outside the most. 😂

Living on a hill, snow can get tricky, except for times when we get like a foot of snow which for some reason is easier to walk around on foot. Our streets slope downward, so pretty easy to slip.

Sounds like you could use a sturdy pair of boots. I'd imagine deeper snow is probably easier to walk around in without slipping since you sink in more.

9 degree drop in the last hour here! From 46 at 3pm to 37 at 4pm.

Appears to be entirely c-zone driven.    I am guessing that means it will be snowing here soon.   Outside of the c-zone... Its 43 at BLI and in the mid 40s in Port Angeles and Sequim and along the entire WA coast.

Yeah, we just had some brief snow that was honestly just a couple of minutes but surface was too warm to stick.

Eugene Salem and Medford are probably the most due for some snow. Hasn’t been much in that area the last couple winters compared to up north. I think the west side of Salem and Corvallis had a nice little event in late January.

Would be nice if that c-zone dropped down this way in a few hours from now. Looks like it could potentially later tonight but you just never know with these things. Sometimes they’re forecasted to drop south and they fizzle before arriving and other times it’s not forecasted at all and we get hit.
