On going forecast for Thursday to Friday looks very consistent. Snow will likely move in Thursday afternoon. It will then change to sleet then freezing rain from southwest to northeast and eventually rain as temps go from 26 to 36 to 28.
In terms of accumulation before a change over to rain it would be good to get a round of really good sampling to input into models before talking about accumulations. Right now storm is in a zone of much less sampling in the pacific.
Regardless model consistency has been surprisingly good. Putting this system against others in an analog data set a snow and ice event is overwhelm impede with no rain. However we need to watch this and see if track changes which will determine precip types and duration of those types
