New Podcast on Weekend Snow

 I have a new podcast that provides an update on the snow forecast for this weekend over the region.  There will be huge variations in snow amounts from zero to several feet!

  1. Cliff -- can you post the ECMWF accumulated for WA accumulated snowfall? I do not have access to ECMWF and it is so helpful when you do post those graphics!
    Thank you

  2. Just listened to the podcast - exciting!

    When you update later, I'd be curious about the Sunday night system and if you see the Fraser outflow continuing up here in Whatcom County?

    You mentioned it would likely be further north and wetter, which sounds like a good snow maker for us, assuming the cold air stays in place.

    Thanks!

  8. I live out in maple valley and I have a few questions. so yesterday it was quite windy all day and it also snowed all day. Now (today) though, there is now snow at all on the ground here. the flakes that fell all day yesterday were extremely small and were blown around very easy.
    my first question was is this most likely going to happen again tonight? another question I had was if sinking air warms, then why were are temperatures still quite colder than other places yesterday? my final question is how come in past years like 2008, or 2019, why was there so much snow but so little wind?

    1. Great Question- I myself have wondered about the easterly winds: We live in Buckley and we have zero snow here- it tried last night but the winds just blew around tiny balls of snow- looked like powdered sugar and that was it, just a dusting. Hoping we can squeeze in a parody of snow tonight despite the wind.
