My snowbanks took a massive hit with all of the rain and wind last night. 🤮

Everett has gotten 2.20” of rain from this storm. Much more than modeled and goes to show how absolutely epic this storm would have been if it came in two days sooner with cold air in place.

1.47” in 6 hours last night which I can’t remember ever seeing here.

To say I am slightly envious of Brian in Leavenworth or an old boss of mine that now lives in Mazama would be a massive understatement. 

I'm not really envious. We have winters with good snowcover, and we have winters without good snowcover or something in between. I guess I really like the variation. I prefer a more dynamic climate.

Ok here’s my once a year post!

Reporting from White Salmon, WA. Always found the weather forecasting here to be really tough to pin down, as the NWS out of Portland tends to focus on Hood River and the western gorge, and the NWS out of Pendleton is always a blanket ‘East slopes of the cascades.’ I’m basically right across the Columbia River from Hood River, but higher up. I think I technically fall under the Pendleton office, but we’re right on the border of their forecasting areas. For just a quick example, we had no WWA or WSW leading up to this, and they only recently added a WWA for an additional 2” at 9am.

Id guess what makes the area tough to forecast is White Salmon essentially sits on top of a cliff side along the gorge. I’m at about 900’ but the elevation quickly increases the more towards Adams you go. Most model maps really struggle to show the difference between what’s going on along the river and what’s happening a quarter mile off of it up the hill.

I don’t have any temps or semi-official measurements to give you all so I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves. Been a wild 9 hours and doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon.

yay snow!

After taking the kids to school, I see why they had a 2 hour delay. Main roads are fine. Side roads still have ice and slush. I got a little slippy trying to pull outta the high school parking lot. 

I'm sure driving on those roads gave you the "cat look".😆😂

Slushmageddon is in full swing here. Absolutely nasty outside and puddles everywhere, there is basically a pool of water/slush around my car.

I had to park on the street at my apartment complex and learned that I will try my hardest to never park on the street again during a slushmageddon.

Not sure how helpful this is, but I'm a lurker from South Kitsap (outside of Gorst, about 500') and it was so strange to see fellow Kitsap county folks on the forum reporting buckets of snow last night! We got nothing but heavy rain and some thunder, while areas around us got accumulations. A bit sad, really. I know snow doesn't last forever, but I hate watching it melt, especially in the rain.  

I trust these forums ahead of any other forecasts. Thanks for all you do!

We've had snow from December to early March before. I'm usually tired of snow by February, but I still like tracking big storms.

Nothing but rain in North Seattle, just like I thought. Cliff Mass isn't always right, but he was sure right about this one (along with the NWS mets).

Not quite. He said no lowland snow and it snowed 2” here in Everett and roads were covered down to sea level.

NWS issued a WWA after the two inches had fallen but it didn’t snow any more after they issued it.

Yeah I get that a lot. Haha. I’m originally from the Kirkland/Bothell area so I grew up with mostly wet, sad snow. No idea on yearly average. I follow weather with childlike enthusiasm and tend to black out from excitement when it snows.

Fair enough. Guess he was right for most people but messed up some other places.

Dude if this had came in over arctic air in place it would've been historical maybe record breaking.

I looked out my window this morning and there is practically no snow left. Normally I'd be sad about this, but it's been such a great week that I find it hard to be disappointed about the snow disappearing.

Still a good snow cover here thanks to it not warming up like other places.  At least I got half of the picture right here.  I sure wish I could have pulled off snow last night though.
