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.

Took a nice walk and thankfully the weather was agreeing with outdoor activity. Feels great out there.

Not quite yet out here... precip is too light.   Just some light rain/snow mix here.    That will probably change over the next couple hours.

Got up to 53F now down to 42F after sunset with some steady rain. The gauge says 0.22" so it seems to be working tho it has felt like more than that has fallen. Pretty steady all day since it started.

Yep, this winters grade is a D for me, looks like I won't see any March snow accumulation for the first time in several years, I was banking on that to raise the grade but alas it will not happen.

Congrats to those seeing snow tonight!!

It's going to be interesting to see who, if anybody, gets snow tonight.  No doubt we have some convergence over King County that is supposed to continue through the night.  Looks like a lot of places are in the 36 to 38 range right now.  Getting interesting.

The GFS and parallel seem to indicate the precip from the current zone might peter out and then come back early tomorrow morning.  At that time 925mb temps are supposed to be -3.  Easily cold enough for snow in most places where precip falls.  Can't wait to see what the ECMWF has to say.

Regardless of what happens tonight, tomorrow is going to be a really crisp day with 850s still only -7 by late afternoon.  Going to feel like winter tomorrow night for sure.

So for future reference... the parallel GFS also over-estimates snow.  

The 00Z run showed over 2 inches here between 5-8 p.m.    The actual amount was nothing in that time frame.

Very raw day today at Avalon.  First time I've walked a course in about 12-13 years.  Seeing that the rain was going to be more of an afternoon event, we changed our tee time to get out there earlier.   Super windy, and it rained through about 3 holes on the north 9.  We got a little break, then it picked back up with about 6 holes to go, and then we got hammered with a heavy band (in the radar loop below) with about 3 to go and soaked us.  Still a fun day!  If we would have stayed with the original tee time, we would have only been on the 5th or 6th hole when that line went through.

00z legacy GFS has a downright pornographic pattern in the West D9 onwards. Parallel GFS is getting there but has a little ways to go.

00z GFS is chilly end of this week through the weekend and then dumps this large trough into the region during the middle of next week.

Lets retire the GFS!   Won't the parallel become the GFS this week?

Yep, 2 days. ūüė쬆Tho¬†the legacy GFS actually handled this period better than the parallel over the NPAC (latter was more in the Euro camp for awhile, which developed that¬†phantom ULL).

If the parallel GFS has that same tendency re: dragging ULLs, then it might struggle with the canonical progression into -PNA under RWD cycles.

All I know for sure is what GWO/ENSO analogs indicate as far as the pattern progression is concerned. Doesn’t mean that method always works, but I have just as much (if not more) confidence in that than the models sometimes (after D5-7).

So far, it’s 1-0 in favor of the analog method given what happened for this period. I archived each of the EPS runs and compared them to the GWO/MJO analogs for homogeneous ENSO low frequency regimes.

One is a lot closer than the other. ūüôā

Of course it’s failed too. Especially near the inflection points in AAM tendency (depending on its source) and/or the completion of intraseasonal cycles.

FWIW there might be rays of hope for the h*** m***rs in late April/first half of May as the lower freq GOA ridge position amplifies into AK and edges closer to the west coast.

The first 2-3 weeks of May (extrapolated from present state..so open to error) might be favored to resemble 2020 in some ways. Colder anomalies over the central and/or eastern states with a ridge in the GOA/AK and maybe the west coast. It wouldn’t be a warm season fixture but it’s showing up.

Snow tapering off now. Nice to get a little something out of this system and get on the board for March. Long range GFS looked chilly too. We'll see.

Mine loses connection if I turn on our DVD player of all things but resume as normal once I turn it off. No other electronics effects it. You might have some interference perhaps?

I’d wager decent money there’s a warm period somewhere in the first half of May. Out this far I can’t nail the timing down but suspect it coincides with final stratwarm and next Pacific MJO. Always risk of a backdoor front I suppose, depending how/where the vortex goes to die (which could put a lot of cold in Canada..or in Siberia).

Took it outside with a direct line of sight and still no connection so it must be a power issue with the station itself which is weird since it's supposed to be solar-powered after the batteries initially power it up.

This sounds like your reverse psychology during Seahawk games. There will probably be plenty of nice weather in May, just like there is most years. ‚ėļÔłŹ
