Well, yesterday we broke the old record of 92.1 Degrees F set in 1977. We got up to 92.9 Degrees at 3:51PM. Today is going to be about 7 to 10 degrees cooler. We also had a bit of AM rain this morning.
Well, I woke up this morning and checked outside and had about 1/4 inch of ice on our van and a little bit on the ground I cleared of snow yesterday. It is slick out there today. Right now it is 31 degrees outside, which is actually good. If it was any colder, the ice would be a lot worse. The rain as able to run off somewhat.
I don’t have any way to tell you how much rain we are having right now. My rain gauge is plugged with snow and ice. It will probably melt later on today when it warms up and then the gauge will will register the rain.
I have heard reports of downed trees on Seminary Hill falling onto power lines. The city is going to close the street down. There is a power line down off of Hawkins road in Winlock causing fire.
If you don’t have to go anywhere this morning, STAY HOME. It is slick out there.
Be Safe out there!
Napavine and Winlock schools are closed for Thursday, due to the weather and snow.
Well, I have measured 16 inches of snow this morning since 10:00PM last night. We have a total of 21 inches accumulated on the ground and a total snowfall or 25.5 inches since the snow started.
It has been amusing watching people trying to drive up our hill. Slipping and sliding and plowing the snow with their vehicles. Unless you have a lifted truck with 4 wheel drive and chains, don’t drive in this stuff.
If you have a lot of snow on your roof and it starts to rain later today, it is going to get extremely heavy. You might want to try to get rid of some of the snow. You can open your attic access and put a fan to blow heat into the attic. This will help melt the snow. It is worth paying a little extra to heat the house and melt the snow on the roof rather than the possibly collapsing your roof.
A nice way to spend ones birthday!
Well, I measured 3.5 Inches of snow from last night to this morning. It was enough to close Napavine and Winlock Schools.
It looks like we are going to have even more snow tonight after Midnight. Possibly up to 14 inches. Be careful in the roads today.
Well, looks like we have a snowy start to the week. So far we have had about 4.5 inches of snow and about 2.5 to 3 inches on the ground. Watch out for the slick roads.
So far it looks like we will be having more snow tonight through Wednesday. You can keep an eye on the website for updates and alerts.
Well, it’s official, the NWS has determined that Napavine had an EF0 tornado touch down for about 2 minutes. It had 75 mph winds and left a path of damage about 100 yards long and 30 yards wide.
At the station, all I could see was HEAVY 1/4 inch hail. We had a brief increase in wind with a 22 mph gust and the temperature dropped about 5 degrees in about 2 minutes. I couldn’t see the funnel cloud. My view was blocked in the direction of the event.
“Welcome to Tornado Alley Napavine.”
Looks like we has a funnel cloud near Napavine today around 2:00PM. It reportedly took a shed roof off.
This spring sure has seemed a lot like fall. Heh. I sure am ready for the sun. I can’t even keep up with the grass. By the time I have a moment to mow the lawn, it is raining.
I want to wish everyone a Good Memorial day Weekend. It looks like we will have at least one nice day. Get out on Sunday and BBQ and have fun in what little sun we will have.
It is looking like we will even have snow in White Pass this weekend. So if you are heading over the pass this weekend, be prepared.
Summer will get here some day, I know it!
Well, the snow has come and hopefully gone. We had probably 3 inches of snow last night and about 2 the day before. Hopefully the snow on the roads will melt and evaporate before the freeze comes.
No work for me today and the school and daycare are closed. Not much to do but shovel the snow and watch the tube.
The temperature is supposed to get down to 17 degrees tonight. Could cause some problems tomorrow morning. Be careful and keep up to date at www.Napavineweather.com.
