The snowline was actually low yesterday in this part of the state. During the short bits that the clouds cleared one could see fresh snow in the hills. I'd guess the same is true today since the rain tried to switch into snow earlier. Winter still exists for the rest of us.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

The Loup is reopening this weekend. They say to expect conditions to be like early season. New snow was visible on the hills yesterday. Still a lot of time left.

Washington SNOTEL Current Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) % of Normal There may be a lot of time left, but it is really unlikely to see significant snow amounts given that we are still in an El Niño pattern. Much more likely we will have significantly lower overall snow pack this year. Rumi

More clic bait from the ST. There is no evidence to support it.

3 inches of new snow at the Loup this morning. An inch here in town. The town snow is melting.

While this has been a poor winter for the snowpack, we are still (mostly) doing much better than 2014-2015. Overall SWE:

2024

Selected SNOTEL stations (red is 2015, blue is 2024):
Echoing RumiDude, we have some big storms coming through next week. Winter is roaring back, at least for a little while.

Cliff Mass jumping on board: Substantial Snow Returning to the Pacific Northwest I wonder if we will get to 100% snow water equivalent in the WA Cascades by April? Oregon Cascades already above 100%. Lots of doom and gloom and yet Paradise base is 110 inches right now.

Snow, wind, and waves for the next system coming through. I hope we get some good snow in the Olympics as the snow pack is lagging far behind the Cascades. Be sure to check the avalanche conditions if you go out into the mountains. And if you go to the coast, sneaker wave activity is high, so stay out of the surf zone. Rumi

Late Februrary and early March to the rescue: NWS Seattle Discussion:
Quote:
Heavy precipitation will be enhanced today as the upper level flow shifts southwesterly, allowing for greater moisture fetch ahead of an approaching cold front. The lowlands will see 1 to 3 inches of stratiform rainfall through Thursday morning with the heaviest rain amounts slated for areas along the Pacific Coast. The mountains are on track to see significant snow accumulations above 2000 ft, with 1 to 3 feet over the Olympics and generally 2 to 5 feet over the Cascades through Thursday morning. For higher terrain surrounding Mount Baker and Mount Rainier, the highest peaks may see accumulations surpassing 10 feet of snow. Ensembles maintain good agreement over 1 to 2 feet of snowfall through Snoqualmie and Stevens Passes, with higher probabilities (40 to 50 percent) of over 2 feet through White Pass and along US-20 through the Northern Cascades. Snowfall rates of an inch or more per hour through Stevens Pass this afternoon may cause white-out conditions at times, and conditions over the mountains are favorable for triggering large avalanches. Confidence is high over the significant precipitation totals, with consistently high model guidance over the past several days.
While snowfall depths below 5000' are not likely to reach normal leveals, above 5000' they may.
