Over the past 5 days or so there have been strong hints that several very cold weather systems (for late February) will drop into the Pacific Northwest this weekend and early next week.
Over the past two days models have been very gradually warming up the pattern (slightly). This may very well be enough to eliminate the possibility of lowland snow. As of this evening it appears too warm to get snow much below 1,500′ Saturday and Sunday. We’ll see about Monday-Tuesday next week. Even that looks very marginal…I’d assign the possibilities these percentages based on current info:
We haven’t seen measurable snow this winter and I don’t see a real good chance for measurable snow in the next 7 days. The chance isn’t gone, but it’s looking slim right now.
