    I'm up to 57" for the winter. Should see 2-5" on Friday night.

    Might get an inch here through Wednesday, better bet of several inches on Friday morning with a pretty solid system. I've had 23" for the year so far, but no storms larger than 4".

    GFS vs. FV3 GFS

    It would be ideal if the FV3 were better than the GFS at this stage, but at least the FV3 should have a higher ceiling than the GFS given its new capabilities. We will see! For my neck of the woods the FV3 produces out of control lake effect when none occurs. Its kind of a pain.

    Hope it works out for you soon too. Everything is melting away it looks like with no prospects for anything other than maybe a stray inch here or there coming up. You guys need it worse than I do though.

    Models trending up for the storm on Sunday for me. Looks like 2-4" at my house now. Another storm Monday but I will miss it at AMS.

    We had a few small storms in SLC last week. Added up alright but most of it blew away in the downslope winds a few days back. Looks like 1-2" on Sunday.

    It's really looking snowy here from Saturday-Wednesday or so. ECMWF with a 10-1 ratio had 10" at KSLC, and the ratio will probably be higher than that given the cold temperatures aloft.

    From what I've seen its a solid EF2 tornado, but otherwise its just as you said. In the western valleys of Oregon and Washington WSW to SW flow always has to be watched in the post frontal environment. Frequently these long and narrow bands set up downwind of the coast range from convergence with decent wind shear (southerly up the valley and SW above the valley). Periodically they spin up a weak tornado, and rarely a more significant one.

    A snowy period may set up here near the 23-30th or so. Should be a few systems that will move through. Hopefully at least one turns out to be significant.

    Next storm will likely be Wednesday here. Not looking huge but a few inches are possible.

    Decent snowstorm over SLC last weekend. Some places were over a foot with lake effect. I had 5.4". Another 1/3" this morning. Looks be drying out for a while with inversions and fog setting up the next few days.

    Looking at some snow here tomorrow night and again on Sunday. I'm thinking 2-4" for me tomorrow night and 1-4" for Sunday.

    3.3" yesterday at my house. Probably some more towards the coming weekend.

    Very quiet here lately. Cold and dry.

    Weak-Moderate El Nino 2018-2019

    I am a big fan of what this forecast shows. Nice to see it going for cold weather throughout the west and decently wet, especially SW. Most of the forecasts are for warm and dry over the interior west in my area.
