And so it goes. The snowpack must be amazing high on Mt. Baker and that doesn't look to change in the next week and a half.

NOT funny, Gary!  What a terrible up-down period we are enduring!  I'm ready for spring corn snow and no crowds!

Supposed to return to "normal" here Sun-Mon in North Idaho....normal being 28-32 degrees and snowing, and as usual, little or no wind. Perfect.

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

Well the avalanche center said earlier that by January 22nd, Mt. Baker had had 26" of rain, since then Elbow Lake near Scheriber's Meadow has had about 9", and Mt. Baker 12.8", and the next couple of days the UW model shows another 5-10". So it seems rather wet. I would kind of bet that in the North Cascades there has only been this much rain in a month.....maybe never, maybe a couple of times.

I did hike up Tiger in a short window a couple of days ago. That seemed like a coup.

Can't wait until next week.

What are you doing this next week?

NWS this PM:
Quote:
.LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY/...This does not appear to last

very long. Models remain consistent in setting up another

atmospheric river scenario over W WA...although there are some

discrepancies as to when it starts. The GFS kicks things off by late

Tuesday morning while the ECMWF holds off until Tuesday evening.

Once it is on though...both models agree that the fire hose stays

over the area at least into Thursday evening. The ECMWF actually has

things breaking up by Friday morning and even brings in a

weak...quick moving upper level ridge as a way of saying it is

sorry. The 18Z GFS however appears to make the case for gathering up

pairs of animals as the atmospheric river scenario spills into the

weekend.
Starting Wednesday...temperatures rise over the area with

high temperatures being generally around 50 degrees and...as

such...the dominant form of precip will be rain. These temps look to

remain pretty static for the remainder of the forecast period.  18

Today's rainfall at Paradise may total 8-10"! with 48 hour rain likely exceeding 10". Luckily, this will also be a snow producer, especially after today.

What are you doing this next week?

Monday was lovely for getting out for some touring with the dog on moderate terrain that had 3-5" of dust over the very supportive crust up at Snoqualmie Pass. Yesterday afternoon into evening was super fun for skiing blue and green terrain at Summit Central as a hard round of "refills" fell from the sky. And hours of bidirectional highway closure may have been what helped keep the "crowds" down to the point where it felt like a private club. Skiing anything steep though quickly reminded me that there was a bulletproof crust not wildly far under the surface of the freshly falling snow.

Looks a bit miserable up there now. There are nonetheless some intrepid skiers showing up on Central's and Alpental's webcams. Looks like folks at Stevens at least were getting the white variety of rain this morning (it sure looked like rain once it hit the covers over the webcams!). Temps there have crested freezing as of about mid-day though.

I'm trying to built up the momentum to go either do some Hyak skin laps or maybe ride the chairs at Alpental for a few hours Friday morning, when we may perhaps have at least slightly less intense rain. It would be exercise, and I've had some surprisingly nice skiing up there in the rain. The trick is to keep moving, have a spare pair of handwear, and bail once that second pair has drenched through at which point my pants and shirts are likely starting to follow suite. Full change of clothes in the car...
