I know this is a bit strange…just an hour later. But I’ve changed my mind after seeing temperatures fail to drop this hour and the HRRR model showing temps bottoming out only in the mid 30s by morning in the central/eastern Gorge. I think models have overdone the cold/dry air so I’m backing off a bit. Still a good snowstorm in the hills of the eastern Gorge, but anything frozen is unlikely in the western Gorge except maybe up around 1,000′.
THIS is what I am really showing tonight at 10:45pm:
