Since that time the Washington Cascades has received heavy snow, especially over the last several weeks. So now most locations in the Western Washington Cascades the snowpack is close to normal.
What is the extended forecast? For the period (March 5 to March 11 forecast models are showing an upper level ridge (see map below). Thus, we should have close to normal temperatures and normal to below normal precipitation.
