Here are some of your snow totals; I got in a hurry so I missed quite a few of them…sorry! It’s obvious that we forecast too high on snow accumulation this time. Most of the metro area had 1-3″ Far west side (Forest Grove) and north (Felida) had 5-7″!
Now radar is looking pretty dry and I don’t see any organized weather system for tomorrow. As a result, we begin a slow thaw. This is what I’m thinking as of 11pm:
There will not be any warming southerly wind tomorrow, but just a few more degrees of gradual warming of our cool low-level airmass. As a result at best I see 33 at Troutdale, 35 at PDX, and 36-39 in most of the rest of the metro area. With no east wind returning tomorrow night and some light showers moving in, temperatures should remain above freezing.
That means lots of snow still left around Monday morning, but temps above freezing; a sloppy mess. The Columbia River Gorge will remain frozen through Monday morning. Time for the drive home!
