WeatherWatcher: Weekly Weather May 14 - 20, 2011 and the week ahead

Monday, May 23, 2011

Warmest and coldest days are based on average temperature of the entire day, starting at midnight. All other averages are based on the whole week. All weather data unless otherwise noted is sourced from Carl’s Shoreline Weather Station.

Warmest day: 55.9ºF (Friday)
Coldest day: 48.0ºF (Monday)
Rainiest day: 0.59 inches (Sunday)
Average temperature: 52.3ºF
High temperature: 69.6ºF (Friday)
Low temperature: 42.3ºF (Tuesday and Thursday)
Total rainfall: 1.44 inches
High humidity: 100%
Low humidity: 20% (Wednesday)
Average humidity: 66%
High pressure: 29.619 inches (Thursday)
Low pressure: 29.028 inches (Sunday)
Average pressure: 29.357 inches

We had some highlights this week:
  • Saturday, Sunday and Monday, record rainfall for this time of year. We got more rain than all of May’s normal rainfall total in one weekend!
  • Wednesday – Friday: We struggled to hit 70ºF and though Sea-Tac where the official Seattle weather data is recorded made it to 70ºF, Shoreline did not. However Shoreline has made it to 70ºF for a high this spring on 2 occasions now.

The week ahead looks grim if you like warm weather:
We still struggle to make it into the normal temperatures we should be at, sitting several degrees below our normal average. It’s looking like this coming week will be cooler than normal for most of the week, so I hope everyone enjoyed the warm and sun while it lasted! Back into the low-mid 50’s with a couple days reaching the low 60’s for a high, and continued wet.
