Morning Convergence Zone


We do have a convergence zone now...as we often do after fronts...and the air is cold enough for snow above 500ft where precip intensity is great enough.

PS: Note there are TWO convergence lines (more on this later)

PSS: If any of you are interested in the NW weather workshop, please take a look at the link in the upper right and register if you want to go. The agenda is online. This is the meeting for hardcore local weather lovers.

I suspect you're describing us. We're East and 580 feet of elevation. (top of Demery Hill, Sammamish)

I am hoping we get a little snow here in Woodinville, right now all we have is pea soup fog.

I`m here in Woodinville to...300ft elevation atop Hollywod hill and no snow to be seen. I currently have temp of 37 with cloudy skies.

Pretty decent CZ earlier this morning and I picked up 0.39" rain with it. That is what i have so.

I see the CZ has faded some what over my area, but looks like it`s re-organizing it`s self currently.

Definitely noticed it at 9am driving down Hwy 99 in Seattle, a little snow mixed in with the rain squall.

Teresa said...

You aren't missing much. At best we may have slush on the sidewalks at times. Still snowing with the rain, though.

Snowing on Snoqualmie Ridge, woke up at 7am to about an inch on the ground. Dumping snow right now 34.3 outside with a dewpoint of 30.4

I hear it is/was snowing in Lynden.

Hey guys, it`s raining here, but just briefly had snow mixed in. And this all while temp was and still is at 37 with dp at 35. Looks like this could be on/off deal with the cooler air coming today....as teaser...with the real shot coming in over the weekend.

We've got at least 3 inches here east of North Bend at 700 feet and it's still coming down heavily. The snow just started at about 7:30AM.

I-90 is a mess with spin outs both ways, even a roll over eastbound. All vehicles must have chains except AWD, eastbound past Exit 34. Between Exit 27 and 34, I-90 is pretty well down to 1 lane. Not sure after exit 34, as that is my exit.

Enough already!!!!!

Teresa said...

We're getting snow in earnest now. However, it's too wet on the ground and too warm to stick or anything. But picture gigantic, gloppy snowflakes, and you have what I'm seeing.

Erika said...

Mixed snow and rain outside Deception Pass.

I feel it's all my fault, as earlier this week I was being smug in a conversation with a Wisconsin friend who was snowed in. Apologies, everyone!

Teresa said...

Oh, wow, look at Tiger Mountain Road (at about 10:10 am):

Snowing quite hard here in Sammamish, but too warm to stick with the temp @ 36.3

inkprincess said...

Jealous of all the "it's snowing here" replies! I'm in Gig Harbor. It's bright and sunny out! :(

Liembo said...

Snowing in downtown Bellevue, very wet. 10:30am

PAG said...

6" and counting east of North Bend 700' and still falling heavily.

Pag..

Maybe you`ll come close to a foot of snow if keeps snow at your place.

cornbread said...

Snow in Maple Valley now. I was going to head up to North Bend at exit 34 for a snow hike with the dog, but might rethink it now. Highway 18 looks like a mess.

showhank said...

43F and snow here in Bellingham.

Teresa said...

Highway 18 is blocked in both directions around the Tiger Mountain summit and I90 at Snoqualmie pass is closed.

(Per WSDOT)

A little windy, but nothing major here in Lacey, no snow to speak of all morning...but it rained HARD this morning.

123pm Temp 45degrees winds out of the WSW at 12mph gusting to 19mph.

Sunny.

PAG said...

Andy--6 1/2", finally slowing down. hopefully not much more accumulation.

Rileydog said...

It's snowing in Bellingham!! We left for our run around 12:30 in warm sunshine and finished with blowing snow!! It's coming down hard now, but not sticking. Although the temp is dropping quickly...WAHOO!!

Rob said...

Last year I went and there was a lot of negative talk about weather and giving any kind of weather a bad name... which didn't seem very appropriate for weather lovers. Are you promising it'll be different this year? :)
