WeatherWatcher: Weekly Weather Report

  • Week and weekend ahead
  • Highlights: Warm Weather, then thunderstorms
  • Last week's data
The week and weekend ahead: We are having another not nearly as strong weather system moving through tomorrow - Thursday bringing some showers and cloudy days. We will move to a change from mostly cloudy to a mostly sunny trend as Friday-Sunday moves along. A few showers here and there are likely but nothing major or like Monday this week. Lows will range in the 40's - 50's and highs will be around the mid 60's pretty much every day for the next 7 days.

Highlights: We got a nice taste of Summer last week with high temperatures soaring into the mid 80's thanks to a large high pressure system. The warm weather was ended with a potent (for this time of year) storm front. The initial front moved through Sunday with some steady light rain in the morning but then leaving us with mostly cloudy skies and some sprinkles. Monday we had a large band of strong thunderstorms move through in the afternoon, a little after 1pm. The band of storms dumped a large amount of rain in a very short time. In less than 30 minutes of time, between 1:30PM and 2:00PM we received 0.17 inches of rainfall. After the thunderstorms had passed overhead, winds began to gust up to around 50 MPH and didn't taper off until around 6 PM. Large tree limbs were left scattered among many neighborhood roads in the area causing driving hazards. This storm also caused scattered power outages around the region, I am unsure if we had any specifically within Shoreline or Lake Forest Park.

Last week's data, May 4th - 10th:
High temperature: 84.9ºF
Low temperature: 47.3ºF
No rainfall this week.
Warmest day: 67.3ºF
Coldest day: 56.1ºF
Average temperature for the week: 60.9ºF

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, starting Saturday morning at midnight. All weather data unless otherwise noted is sourced from Carl's Shoreline Weather.
