56F and starting to rain.  That's translating into a lot of Trans-Sierra Highway closures for the year due to the high elevation snow.

First snow of the season where I am, but other parts of the Seattle metro are seeing their second round of snow in as many days. Pretty early for snow around here. Mid-November is closer to normal. Record is late October though. Temps in low-/mid-30s.

Lowland snow for most of the Seattle metro area...except for the hole in northern Snohomish County formed by the convergence zone. So far, nothing.

You guys either get nothing, or get whacked. I hear on the morning news all the time, "relatively dry except for a possible pop-up storm in the convergence zone..."

My parts of Seattle weren't exactly whacked... only a trace stuck, on top of car windshields.

UMass Lowell (don't know about my hometown) received some frost for the first time since April. The frost has probably cleared by now.

A late 1st snow of the year here....1.5" here, but accompanied by lightning/thunder, 30KT (35mph) winds, and a huge drop in temperature.  Went from 35F at 1:30am (EST) to 14F now with wind chills below zero.

A late 1st snow of the year here....accompanied by lightning/thunder

I've been led to believe that thundersnow is pretty unusual. I've never seen it before, and, judging by Jim Cantore's reaction to the stuff several years, it's not particularly common.

That sounds truly intriguing. I have never seen or heard of such a thing, but weather can do many things, so I'll say I'm not surprised that it can occur (albeit rarely). I actually just started tuning into The Weather Channel right at this moment, and it seemed like I barely missed some sort of something that it was saying or showing about thundersnow (as I saw the last 2 or 3 seconds of it).

It is. You need a very heavy snowfall rate for the ice crystals to charge up enough to cause lightning. The Groundhogs Day Blizzard in Chicagoland was the textbook case for thundersnow. In fact I had nickel size hail embedded in the snow during that storm! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJt4nV6hM1Y

Edit: realized my autocorrect said isn't instead of is 3 days later  :paranoid: :paranoid: :no:

46 and cloudy right now.

Thursday night/Friday morning it dipped to 20 degrees. I didn't bring a jacket to work (typical of me in the autumnal months) and I was freezing as I put gas in my car afterwards. I felt kind of silly.

Same down south. Crossing my fingers I don't lose power. PSE's outage map is not very encouraging. I live in a very dense area, so not many trees around me. But you never know.
