Frost/Snow Risk?

Frost/Snow Risk?

I, too, have been concerned about the weather in the Seattle area cooling down again (my partner predicts another snowfall). Does anyone have reliable information? I found this on the web, and it is the most definitive thing I could get: "Even though the Pacific Northwest has experienced the warmer and drier fall (September-December) conditions typically associated with an El Niño" event, the atmospheric circulation patterns that brought these warmer/drier conditions have been quite unlike those most often observed in "classic" El Niño fall/winter periods. Consequently, the odds for experiencing a "classic" El Niño circulation pattern over the North Pacific and Pacific Northwest appear to be relatively low. However, given the expectations that weak El Niño-like conditions will persist for the next few months and the strong climate trends observed in the past decade, the NOAA/NCEP forecast calls for an increased likelihood that the Northwest will experience below average precipitation and above average temperatures for the next few months (through spring)." http://www.cses.washington.edu/cig/fpt/cloutlook.shtml
