Ended up with some flurries here, but not enough moisture to amount to anything.  It's hard to not like the big picture if you're a fan of below normal temps.  A number of cold shots are showing up on the models over the next couple of weeks.  This current air mass is pretty extraordinary for a maritime polar air mass.  The dump of cold air into this trough must have been impressive when it was upstream.

Was lightly snowing here just a bit ago. Mostly cloudy now and 37 after a low of 34.

Driveway was definitely icy here. 26 was the low so far. One of the coldest nights of the winter!

Pretty incredible it was able to clear out and get cold so fast down there.  The run of cold low temps this month has been pretty noteworthy in some places.  The next couple of nights are going to add nicely to that.

For my personal records if it drops to 26 or lower tonight that will be the coldest I've ever recorded this late in the season.  Given the numbers some people are reporting this morning there will certainly be mid 20s in some places tonight.  Probably a few low 20s in places like OLM.

At any rate this will be the biggest month for freezing low temps in a number of locations for the cold season.

Yeah, at least it ended up fairly chilly. Unfortunate the trough split though, which really wrecked precip totals.

Still just 34 here. Pretty interesting to see everything still frozen in the shade two hours after sunrise. Notable for this late in the season.

Tonight has the potential to be as cold or colder for many locations.

A few flurries here in south Tacoma at work place.

Too bad the original plan the models had didn't work out for us.  We had the cold air, but the moisture didn't cooperate for some accumulation.  At least we got to see some flakes.  I get a little bit tired of the details always going sideways for this area for snowfall.

It's really interesting when you look at the 500mb level you wouldn't think this is anything special at all.  At the mid and low levels though this thing is impressively cold.  We could see some big minus departures for many places today.  Tomorrow will be impressive too, but the max temps will be a bit warmer.

There's potential for a shot of even colder air than this showing up in the 8 to 10 day period if the details play out right.  The 6z run worked out really well with it, and other models have strongly hinted at it.  The second half of the month is showing nice potential now.  I want a long streak of below normal months.

The front yesterday afternoon ended up being a little more impressive than I anticipated. An hour or so after the spike of SW winds there was some heavy rain and unusually strong NW winds with the true cold front. The temperature here dropped from 48 to 42 in a half hour. By midnight things were clearing out and there was already frost forming in spots.

Denver's snowstorm is the second biggest two day snow total on record, with 27.1" snowfall. #1 was in 1913, December 4-5.

Cheyenne had its highest two day snow total on record at 30.8", which is also its highest three day snow total on record. Absolutely historic storm.

The precip cut off for you before the coldest air arrived.  Pretty rare for your location.

I actually expected that to happen based on our recent climate. Dunno why people still act surprised when these things split against 'model' predictions.

Big stuff happening this season.  Maybe the solar grand minimum is finally reaping some benefits.

There have been some epic events like the ridiculous freeze in Texas and the incredible cold they have had in Russia this winter.  The latter is very noteworthy since the climate change fanatics have touted the recent warm winters in Siberia as a doom and gloom apocalypse for us.

This pattern actually trended colder and less splitty in the homestretch. There was a period just 2-3 days ago where yesterday looked to be mostly sunny and in the low to mid 60s for much of the western lowlands as the trough split offshore, with a weak evening front and a minor cooldown today.

The 12z GFS nails us with another solid cold shot by day 10.  A couple of other chilly troughs before that also.  It's quite impressive how much colder things have trended in general.

Well said.  My only disappointment with this is the detail of not enough moisture IMBY when the coldest air arrived.

Really cool to see some flakes atleast this late in the season...1 day later than last year. Still lightly snowing and 36 here in central Tacoma. Also the second time this month we’ve seen some flakes had some on 3/7.

This snow ended up being a solid 2". I'm over the average for March already, figured that would be easier to do.

Absolutely no end in sight to the lows of 40 or below.  I've already had a streak of better than 35 days.  It should easily end up being the longest streak I've ever recorded this late in the season.  I'm loving the big picture right now.

I am happy to see the frosty nights should be ending after Wednesday morning.    That will help get everything progressing faster.

Looks like an even split on the ensemble between warm and cold for the 10 to 15 day period.  Quite a large spread between the two groups of members.  Given the what's going on in the tropics a cold outcome would be more likely.

It appears the next shot at frost could be around day 10.  It will depend how that complex pattern evolves.  Tonight looks downright interesting though.

It does appear we will be seeing cooler max temps going forward if the GFS is to be believed.

We need a cold year.  The Cascade glaciers would love it.  I'm pretty convinced it's the very warm recent summers that have had the most to do with the most recent retreat.  Cool summers here don't necessarily mean clouds and drizzle either.  As you know I'm a fan of dry summers.

I have heard that! 

Unfortunately... cool usually means wet and gloomy in the summer.   I know it happened in the past but the chances are much better that a cool summer will be gloomy.    You have this very specific set of requirements for each season... but it just does not usually happen the way you lay it out.

As long as there's good patterns for thunderstorms I just might agree. Just might... ;)

Looks like half the Nino regions are now above average and the Nino 3.4 region is only at -0.3C right now.

Pretty amazing. They were the only Willamette Valley station that did not record a freeze. HIO hit 26.

We need a cold year.  The Cascade glaciers would love it.  I'm pretty convinced it's the very warm recent summers that have had the most to do with the most recent retreat.  Cool summers here don't necessarily mean clouds and drizzle either.  As you know I'm a fan of dry summers.

You are probably looking at some of the same "nice" summers from the 1880s-1920s that have been mentioned repeatedly by others on here. Cool and dry/sunny. I'm not sure if that's actually possible in this climate anymore, or has been for decades. Even the really cool summers of the 1950s thru 1970s were pretty gloomy.

Not sure. Maybe there were some low clouds along the river? Who knows, didn't seem like a situation where PDX would be significantly warmer than all other nearby stations.

Absolutely no end in sight to the lows of 40 or below.  I've already had a streak of better than 35 days.  It should easily end up being the longest streak I've ever recorded this late in the season.  I'm loving the big picture right now.

The temp gradient between y'all and here has been insane for a long stretch. Fascinating but also hopefully just a blip for here. Would be nice to see some sort of notable cold airmass stick around down here for a few days but it'll happen again one day.

It's interesting because historically the south valley does pretty well for overnight lows.

Yup, just been unlucky. It all flips around one day.

EUG has had a sub-40 low literally every day this month so far, with a low of 31 this morning.

Their last low of 40 or higher was almost three weeks ago on 2/26. Since the beginning of February, 35 out of 43 lows have been in the 30s there.

The convective temps must be insanely low today.  Already a lot of cumulus formation showing up on the visible sat pic.  So far it's only managed to get to 41 here.  Looking like a legit below normal day in the works.
