Take a look at the visible satellite picture at 1 PM today (Sunday). You see the beautiful hooked shaped cloud just off the southern WA coast? That's it. Stunning.
The radar image at 1:28 PM from the Langley Hill radar was amazing...it looks like a tiny cyclone with a beautiful inner vortex, which is associated with a low pressure center. Precipitation intensity was enough with this vortex to drive the snow level to the surface along the coast.
While at the University of Washington wind gusted to 27 knots.
