We have some fairly nasty weather blowing in to the Pacific Northwest tonight and tomorrow. It looks like a big jumbled mess of fronts, one after the other, hitting us with rain, wind, and snow.
One of the things that caught my attention was this line of the TAF for Boeing Field. What would you think/expect if you saw this?

Here's a quick view of the prog chart for tomorrow:
We're entering into a dangerous time in General Aviation and Cirrus flying - this is the time of year where get-there-itis combines with ice and low ceilings to challenge our vigilance on personal minimums. Don't let it catch you! Start looking at the weather a few days in advance, talk to your family about planned alternatives to flying your plane, and take those outs when things start to look a little iffy.
