23f and a nice sunrise.  Looks like we best enjoy the sun and cold today as it looks pretty wet and more normal temps most of the week here.  Rivers are going to blow so no steelhead fishing to start the New Years.  Clackamas R at 12' headed to over 16'.  Sandy River at 9' headed to probably over 12' and I think those are conservative values.  Will depend on where the FL ends up.  These aren't flood stage levels but they're gonna pop pretty good.  Just glad it's not an AR.  Lot of low and mid level snow.

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.

Many places here in Leavenworth have snow guards to prevent sliding and protect the roof.  It also prevents enormous piles of snow from accumulating underneath, which can pile so high that it reaches the underneath of the roof and takes forever to melt in the spring.

Our building codes require that roofs can handle large snow loads so no worries that the roof can collapse.

It also is more asthetically pleasing.

Do you have a picture of these snowguards without snow on them?

First is a house with a metal roof where the snow slides, illustrating my point about how it piles up. And note another slide was imminent when I took the picture.  Not my house, I work at that house but don't live there.

Next 2 are my house.  Different kind of guards over my garage than the house they were installed at different times.

My low was 10.7 and it occurred at 12:30am.  High clouds moved in, otherwise I'm sure I would have been near 5 degrees or possibly lower.  Currently 21.5, calm and cloudy.  I loved the weather this past year, with the exception of late June, but the year itself was the worst ever for me and I thought having a worse year than 2020 would be impossible.  I pray this year will be a great blessing to all of us.

Happy New Year everyone! What are everyone's thoughts on scouring out the cold air? Models and mets seem (mostly) insistent that we will be well above freezing when precip arrives, but that seems dicey at best to me, especially given my anecdotal experiences in the past. Thoughts?

I noticed Bowling Green was in another tornado warning just now. Some of these guys can't get a break.

Meanwhile I still have yet to hear thunder since moving here.

I actually went to Cle Elum High for my senior year in high school and they had a metal roof on that building.  It was pretty weird looking out the windows during the winter and seeing nothing but the inside of a snow bank.

Still not sure what to think about tomorrow night.  We'll just have to watch model trends today.  The threat for some lowland snow Monday night appears to be pretty real though.

Meanwhile the long range models are looking good for more GOA blocking later this month.

I had no idea either when we first bought our house.  Nor did I know about blowing out sprinklers in the fall.

There was a Seattle or Western Wa based architect who designed a few homes in a new development here and had no idea about snow slides or guards. So the snow slid from different parts of the roof to a place between the two roof lines and it was a disaster as all the snow slid there and there was no place for it to go.  Obvious to local roofers that the architect had no clue and didn't ask locals about the snow here.

Looks like it bottomed out at 15 here last night.  I was hoping for a few degrees lower, but not bad.

Comparing the 12z GEFS mean to the 6z and 0z at the end of the run the GOA blocking signal is much stronger on this run.

That was a good event. We got about 8” and the week that followed was the coldest here since February 2014, hasn’t been colder since.

I’m hoping this will do the trick…A LOT of ice built up in this particular area near the leak, my arms are now a tad sore from chiseling and hammering the ice away. The Icicles did a number to the Hardie board siding paint as well. Before and after pics!

Too bad the arctic air stalled in Deschutes County in that one. 12 was the coldest I got.

And don't even bring up late February 2014.

If we can keep a south east wind it might work out. 

We come from the land of the ice and snow.

My brother always talks about 1996. He didn't have a thermometer, but it's the coldest he ever saw or felt up in Chesaw.
