Classic Over-Running Event

Today is a classic over running event. A mild storm coming in from the west with southerly winds riding up over the pool of cold air in the Puget lowlands. At 10 in the morning in Bellingham its 29 F with north wind at 9 mph. But the clouds that I estimate at 2,500 feet are moving the opposite direction as the wind. South wind aloft and north wind at the surface. Its warm up above. Hence, snow and possible freezing rain then all rain.

With a series of rain storms through most of next week possible flooding and maybe even some slopes unraveling.
