It’s been the busiest 10 days in almost 2 years (back to February 2014 snow) with Gorge ice, then flooding & mudslides. Then the tornado and now a bunch of mountain snow on the way.
Now the weekend is here. Looks real wet Saturday, and then more typical showers Sunday.
I expect our best snow since last December this weekend in the Cascades:
Quite a break with slower weather Monday-Wednesday, then models in quite a bit of disagreement about what happens afterwards. Some have lots more wet weather as we head into the beginning of Christmas Break, but the ECMWF is pretty insistent on a very splitty El-Nino-ish pattern from days 6-10. We’ll see. But I’m done and headed home so enjoy the weekend…mainly indoors I suppose.
