  1. KGW weather (Portland, OR) reports “Snow showers continue in Cascades next few days”. Hmmm. Can’t both be right. On their own weather map I’ve seen nearly 16″ total fall on Mt. Hood the last three days. Washington Cascades have received far more.

    The brutal cold pattern pouring out of the Bering Straight continues to fill the gulf of Alaska mixing with heavy-laden fronts from Northern Pacific.
    Several weeks ago KGW reported a “massive warm blob” of ocean off Oregon and Washington. That mixing with cooler land mass… well… I tend to believe what you’ve posted from forecast.weather.gov.
