No Snow for NW Washington Sunday morning :(

No Snow for NW Washington Sunday morning :(

This will be a brief post, I just wanted to let folks know that our chances of snow for San Juan/Whatcom Counties Sunday morning have dramatically decreased due to our shortwave taking a more southerly track. Compare tonight’s run to last night’s run and notice how far south the low has shifted. As a result, we won’t have the combination of near-freezing temperatures and moisture necessary for sea-level snowfall. Last night’s run: Tonight’s run: There is still a slight chance…

First Snow of the Season for the Cascades

First Snow of the Season for the Cascades

FINALLY! It’s one thing to be overjoyed at the first stormy forecast of autumn, but to actually see the moderate rain, gusty winds, and even the mountain snow associated with it is nothing short of wonderful. And believe it or not, another storm is right on its heels! Let’s just cut to the chase and take a look at some webcams from around the Pacific Northwest. You can find these webcams and a few more on our Washington Cascades webcam…

Another Wet Week Ahead

Another Wet Week Ahead

Sunday, March 2, 2014 5:55 p.m. And the hits just keep on coming. After our not-so-close brush with snow (it’s easy to get excited looking at models beforehand, but when push comes to shove, this is Seattle, and we live right next to Puget Sound and the Pacific Ocean and are protected from cold air by the Rockies AND Cascades. Cliff Mass actually has actually has an excellent post on our protection from cold air here), it’s time to get back…

Snow Updates for 2/8/2014

Snow Updates for 2/8/2014

Saturday, February 8, 2014 This will be my page for snow updates for the night. 6:49 p.m.: currently lightly snowing in the U District with temperatures around freezing. Surprisingly, it actually is sticking on some cars and even some sections of black pavement. Some feature looks to have developed off of the system coming in and is spreading more snow northward than previously thought. http://www.atmos.washington.edu/weather/radar.shtml I’m definitely upping my predictions – I’m gonna go out on a limb and call…

Light Snow Tonight

Light Snow Tonight

Saturday, February 8, 2014 4:20 p.m. Hey everybody, I hope your Saturday is going well. Mine is. I haven’t done much (or anything for that matter), but that’s doesn’t necessarily constitute a bad day. It’s good to have a chill day every once in a while. The story of this week has been the snow 173 miles to our south. Earlier this week, models showed Seattle getting some snow, but that has not been the case. Instead, Portland, Salem, Vancouver,…

Less Snow than Forecast

Less Snow than Forecast

Friday, December 20, 2013 7:43 a.m. Where’s the glacier? We got significantly less snow than forecast. I’m actually super proud of myself… I called this before several others, including but not limited to Cliff Mass and the Seattle NWS. That takes skill! (and a fair amount of luck) As evidence, here was my Facebook status at 4:17. I’m awake in my room after my alarm went off because I’m that much of a nerd. It’s 4:17, and there is very…

Snow in Plain Sight

Snow in Plain Sight

Friday, May 3, 2013 8:24 A.M. The last couple days have been pretty darn nice around the Pacific Northwest, but if you are a fan of the weather now, just wait until the weekend. Highs are expected to top 80 Sunday and Monday here in Seattle, and it will be even hotter near the Cascades. The average high for this time of year is 62. Photo taken from Barbara Robertson (my aunt) from Belton, Missouri on May 2, 2013 But…

Never Too Late To Snow

Never Too Late To Snow

Monday, April 29, 2013 10:52 P.M. First off, let my apologize for my lack of punctuality when it comes to posting these blogs as of late. I’ve been very busy recording an album for a funk band I am in, and I have had a string of seizures to boot. Thankfully, the album is almost done, and I’ll be going into the Swedish Neuroscience Institute on Thursday to get some brain tests done and see if we can get the…

Little Storms

Little Storms

Monday, November 26, 2012 1:37 P.M. I was looking at the models this afternoon, and I noticed that there are a lot of little storms slated to hit our area later this week into next week. None of these storms look particularly strong. In some ways, they look kind of cute… in a nerdy meteorological way. If our rainstorm/windstorm last Monday was a bulldog, these storms would be adorable little pugs. Of course, I’d take a big bad storm any…

A Nor’easter for the Northeast

A Nor’easter for the Northeast

Monday, November 5, 2012 2:39 P.M. Let me first start out by saying that this storm will be nowhere near as strong as Sandy. I was looking at some of the statistics from Sandy… 185 fatalities and at least 52.4 billion dollars in damage (the second costliest hurricane in the history of the U.S.), and I was shocked. I knew the storm was going to be bad, but I had no idea it would cause as much devastation as it…
