This is shaping up to be a dream scenario.

Unfortunately, my parents and brother fly in from Boise on Thursday but they shouldn't be impacted. However, they fly home on Monday. That might be dicey.

My brother in law and sister are currently driving up from Santa Barbara and will be here the 23rd. Again, not impacted yet. But they also head back home on the 27th.

My other brother in law is driving down to Phoenix on the 26th.

Then I'm flying to Phoenix on the 29th. Hmm, interesting...

Hoooo boy.

Those 50s in Phoenix will feel hot.

Never mind, it's showery. All liquid it appears, though.

I dont know why seatac is so high compared to renton numbers. I can understand pierce county but seatac is basically right next to renton and it doesnt seem like a much different wind exposure.

3rd run way? 👀

The difficult thing with a run like this is it's going to be pretty hard to top it. Only so many ways to go from here.

So when the next run comes out and doesn't show multiple rounds with multiple snowstorms and 12+ inches of snow for most people we will have to go through the whole "omg this sux cancel winter" thing again.

Oh well, I'll bask in the glory for now.

Waiting for that slap in the face run, whenever it decides to show itself. In the meantime, I like this run immensely.

Shred it!

I’ll be ready to “cancel winter” or “rug pull” when we have a model pull back

I don't get how it could be wrong, we fed it all of the upper levels from our favorite snow storms and it still kept the cold west.

Leading to this

I've noticed the same thing. It's been pretty insistent on showing the ridge slowly moving eastward days 8-10 and then backing off and retrograding after day 10. This could end up really freaking good.

I am cautiously optimistic. However, most models had me getting an 1-2 inches today and It didn’t even snow. The models have burned me many times this year so far 

Difference will be that we’ll be out of the marginal zone. At least I’m quite confident in that.

So true. You can't do much better than this. Only a region wide blizzard would or could be better.

Eugene already above their monthly average for Precip. 12 out of the last 14 Decembers have featured below average precip there, so good news.

It its all Seatac.  Snowing and low visibility, whereas Bozeman appears to be severe clear.  It is 15 though LOL!

I can confirm that we actually landed back at BZN around 9:30 last night with moderate snow falling with no delays at all. BZN has no trouble with snowfall for obvious reasons. Only times it becomes an issue is when VIS drops below 1/2 mile.

Seatac/PDX on the other hand will practically shut the runways down at the sight of a single snow flake!
