Just a quick note as I’m making my forecast. Take a look at the blog post from the freezing rain event on March 1st. The one where the WRF-GFS was forecasting snow in the cool east wind part of the metro area? It ended up being all rain in the metro area except freezing rain east of I-205 (not on roads). Freezing rain at my place at the west end of the Gorge and ice pellets from Bridal Veil east. This was the snow forecast map:
Look familiar to those of you checking out all the maps today?
Models were too cold that time around and it’s real interesting to read past thoughts as the event approached. Take a look here: https://fox12weather.wordpress.com/2014/02/28/a-chilly-windy-march-weekend/
