Same here which is doubly incredible since I live in an east wind area.  East wind has been a complete no show other than 10mph type stuff.

hit 30.7 on the Thursday and 31.6 here today. Some of the other stations in my neighborhood were briefly reading above 32 but I think mine is more accurate because it is not exposed to direct sunlight.

Just got home, amazed to see how much snow is left. 9 inches on the ground and 30.0 degrees! So since Christmas afternoon my high was 31.1 today so this is a record for this location for the most time sub freezing.  Also looks like bremerton made it 5 full days and that might be the longest streak since 1990 or even longer.

The cold/snowy week in January 2020 up here saved that month.

It's absolutely crazy how warm 30 degrees feels after what we just experienced.  8am today I was filling the tires back up on the truck and it was -10. Even a simple task like that becomes difficult.

Thing I noticed when living over there during the relatively paltry cold snaps we had was that whatever you’re doing out in it just seems to drain your energy very quickly.

Very true and you learn little things along the way. I have a habit of threading off the valve stem cap on a tire and holding it in my mouth, well when it's ten below the moisture that's now on the cap freezes on the threads!!

The amount of moisture coming in with this system is considerable.  Eventually it will need something beyond evaporative cooling to make it work.  In the early going it could easily be snow in areas that don't have their cold air ravaged by SE winds.

I get that in theory, but I've seen a ton of times over the last 42 years of life where a band from about Shoreline north never switches over, even in this scenarios. Maybe they get a few hours of rain snow mix before precip just ends and starts melting, but I can't help but feel like models might be overplaying the scour.

Then again, I was surprised to wake up to 33 degree snow the other morning so easily too, so anything is possible. 

I also don't see how there isn't at least a small chance of freezing rain, given the snowcover and low DPs. Maybe I have something to learn in this event though.

Not quite as pretty as your place!  I love the areas that are lightly treed, but barren isn't pretty.

The NAM 3km is blasting the cold air out of West King County way too easily tomorrow night.  No other model agrees with that.

Wow Bellingham up to 38! 

I figured the models would be right about that.  Currently 29 here.  This is a case where it's always colder here than Bellingham.

Bellingham's tempature will be up and down and all over this week depending  on wind direction. 

Yup.  The models have been advertising some relapses up there.  Even this coming week is going to be considerably below normal overall.  Going to be a good month I think.

You can see the outflow area up by Bellingham with no snow cover. Fascinating.

Still 31 here but 34 at bremerton.  Sometimes if the flow it just right we will avoid the strong south wind and the cold air will collect and build as you get closer to the Olympics.  So far just a light breeze here.

18z ECMWF is a bit more promising for snow tomorrow night.  A tad colder and heavier with the precip.

Curious about any cold being pulled this far West.  I think we are all rain tomorrow.  Maybe some cold air damming on the Canal, but most of Kitsap will be rain.  Had to happen someday. 😉

It's been a great week of cold.

Amazing what happens when the wind comes off the sound.  There will be times this week they go from 40 to 28 back and forth.

At what level?   The ECMWF shows the cold is retreating now and not tomorrow night.   It actually gets colder by Monday morning.

SE wind.  I'll be interested to see if Lynden holds onto the cold or not.  So far they are.

I wouldn't rule out snow where you are.  At any rate snow levels get low again Monday night through early Thursday.  Plenty of chances.

I was mostly referring to the surface.  Even if it's just rain it will be colder than that model was showing tomorrow night.  The ECMWF was actually cold enough for some snow in this area tomorrow night.  Good chances Monday and Tuesday nights.
