Wow... this is a crazy 6z run. We go back into the icebox heading into day 10 but the upper levels are warm, so a serious inversion? Back to back outlier op runs? 

Unfortunately, it appears people are all modeled out as well... any other times, this run would get the night shift popping with what it's showing for Sunday night and the mid-week again for Seattle.

6z same progression as previous runs. After day 7 big ridge develops over us. Inversions strengthens, low level cold pool develops and intensifies quickly with big time east winds.

This would be amazing if it happens.  Beyond amazing.  If the precip intensity it's showing with the Sunday night system is accurate I think it will happen.  Maybe something like Feb 2017?

So the potential for the second week or possibly 3rd week of January looks fantastic. Base off of various ensemble runs and the GFS op runs continues to show the block retrograde back to GoA in the LR, this looks to set the table for arctic air to move back to us after the fake cold. Can't really ask for anything better if you're a cold fan. An exciting January on tap.

Goodbye 2021. Worst year of my life no doubt, but I'm a better and tougher person for it.

Welcome 2022. I have a feeling you may not be so putrid. Though I've got to say, the bar has been set pathetically low...

Cheers y'all, whishing every single one of you happiness and good health this year. As for January.... it's coming. ;)

It's almost a carbon copy of what happened in January 2013. Clipper with a shot of cold air, and then the inversion.

La Grande hit -18? No way!

As far as I can tell looking at their current station and the defunct station that went 1948-1965, it is tied with 12/23/1983 as the 2nd coldest temp in the 1948-present period of record, and within reach of the -20 from January 1950. You have to remember that area is very windy and they almost never decouple, which is why their record lows are so mild when compared to Baker City.

6*F Hit here at BLI for a moment before jumping up to 19*. Coldest low of the snap. Impressive streak of temps here. 
From 12/25-12-31 BLI averaged 24.3* high and 12.1* low with stand out lows of 9,7 and 6*f. Puke on them for not measuring snow. I think they probably would have totaled around 16” at the airport. Parents place near Lake Whatcom had 20” total.

Good morning and happy new year!  Love that 2021 ended and 2022 started with so much beautiful snow on the ground.  Hopefully it is a hint of good times ahead.  We had a low of 19 this morning and now up to 21.

Klamath Falls had -1 this morning, first time in 2 years they hit below zero. Last winter the minimum was 8. lol

The record is -10 for January 1st in 2016 though (old record -3 in 1988).

Welcome to the wonderful world of ice dams!

I wonder if we went with a metal roof and pumped in a little more insulation if that would eliminate this ice damming issue. Well I’m about to go out now that it’s getting light enough and start chipping away at the ice.

Elevation 580’ Location a few miles east of I-5 on the Snohomish Co side of the Snohomish/Skagit border. I love snow/cold AND sun/warmth!

Next time you visit some place like Roslyn or Leavenworth, pay attention to the roofing materials. Typically metal. Snow and ice tend to naturally slide off before they build up to ridiculous levels.

Biggest problem with metal on the West Side is that falling branches tend to poke holes in it.

A less expensive option might be to check out Gutter Helmet.  Not sure if this would address your exact problem but it looks like it will reduce the chance of ice damming to me.

La Grande appears to have set their all-time low. Looks like they hit -22, breaking the record of -20 from 1/31/1950. Amazing.

I passed out asleep when putting my son to bed about 9pm. My neighbor posted their square weather station device showing negative temps right before I fell asleep. This am it is 3 degrees. Happy New Year!

Looks like we hit 19 this morning. First low in the teens since March 2019, an embarrassingly long stretch.
