In Atlanta right now. Today both Atlanta and Seattle were hovering around 40 with showers. Sunday Atlanta will be in the low 70s with sunshine and Seattle will be in the low 30s with occasional snow. Can’t wait to be back in Seattle. Was supposed to fly back Sunday evening but likely going to change to Friday morning.

So help me God if I’m left to rot in Seattle with a paltry 17 inches while Portland gets buried with 30 there’s going to be hell to pay!! 😂

I’m joking…

but seriously if TWL ends up with more snow than Seattle I’ll die laughing.

I think the 0Z GFS is even better than that crazy 18Z from yesterday or whenever.  -13F in Portland with 30" of snow!  -4 in Seattle and below freezing for eleven or twelve days!  Ain't gonna happen but still an historical run.

I really hope this isn’t phantom snow for this location…

The boy has cried wolf so many times already in other parts of the PNW.

The last huge snowfall you got covers your area for a few years, so maybe 2023-24 will deliver to keep the average annual snowfall on point.

Doing some maintenance work on the forum tonight. I'll wait for 11:30pt.

Also, a big shout out to anyone and everyone that has shared this forum on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube comments, and Reddit. I run the site out of a love for weather and have no intentions or desires to throw adds, spam people with donation drives, or harvest personal information. I just want a place where we can all be nerds together. Also, a big thanks to everyone saving these model runs and adding local reports.

We might have something that could rival 2008 or even as far out a mid century record. Even if it doesn't happen and a professional Boston weenie gets his way, we have at least enjoyed the ride together and basked in the Barney glows that few on the windward side of the Cascades have seen modeled. To add to our partial December we might remember, we have a shot of kicking this off by Christmas and a realistic chance of seeing a cold and snow pattern persist for a few weeks. For a lot of us, this has a chance to be the coldest temperatures we have experienced in our own backyards, maybe the most snow we have seen in our neighborhoods, and manifest as a regional event that we may tell our grandchildren the far off year off 2030.

So cheers to everyone, early Merry Christmas, and hats off to @Deweydog and @SilverFallsAndrewfor calling out the potential as early as August.

Anyone have a Kleenex?

As far as mods go y'all are a classy bunch. Great website and great community. Happy to advertise it on tha twittahs
