Weather highlights for the week:
  • Saturday was below freezing with ice in places until just before midnight when the temperature rose to 32.2ºF.
  • Lots of precipitation this week.
  • A windstorm hit the region Wednesday however areas hardest hit was the coast and northwest interior of the State. However worthy of noting there was a power outage effecting 3,100 Shoreline customers, caused by a fallen tree on Dayton Ave N, near Dayton Pl, as previously reported. Closing Shorewood High School and Einstein Middle school early. Winds in the Shoreline and Lake Forest Park area peaked at about 35-37mph, some places including Central Market not even reaching peak gusts above 30mph. This did not meet the criteria for a Wind warning or advisory, if it wasn’t for the power outage this would have just been considered a blustery day. Sustained winds averaged about 15-25mph.

Weather for the coming week:
-It looks like Sunday (today) was our only break. We will continue the train of Pacific storms throughout the rest of the week, with rain in the lowlands, and snow in the mountains. Temperatures may start to top out near 50 degrees by the end of the week, so it’s going to seem very warm compared to the last two months.
