November 24, 2017. HAPPY DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING! We've had over 6 inches of rain in the last 5 days! A river of muck and slush ran through the village down main street yesterday morning. Thanks to the hands of two dozen hard shoveling mice, the ditches are clear of debris and flowing with water, and a happy Thanksgiving was had by all! The mice went straight for the coffee (pumpkin spice espresso) and then dessert, enjoying all three kinds of pie (pumpkin, apple, and apple/pear)!
Yesterday's High: 34 (This morning at 8 AM it is 39 degrees.)
Last Night's Low: 34
Rain: 0.58 inches
Current Snow Depth: 13 inches
Winter Snowfall Total: 53.4 inches
Average Yearly Snowfall: 270 inches
2012 marked 50 years of weather observations from Holden Village. The station began on June 2, 1962, and the National Weather Service presented Holden with an Honored Institution Award this summer.
National Weather Service (NWS) Cooperative Observer Program (COOP)
Holden Village provides the National Weather Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration daily readings from our weather station, located next to the Holden School. Weather data is gathered each morning by volunteers and transmitted electronically to the National Weather Service office in Spokane, Washington. This data is also posted in the dining hall, updated on the Holden Web site, and retained for Village records. What is the Coop Program?
If you like historical data click here, select Holden Village, WA and other choices as desired – have fun!
During winter months, Holden checks and posts the Northwest Avalanche Center (NWAC) Forecast and provides avalanche and snow stability test results to the NWAC. If you go, know the snow!
