WeatherWatcher: Forecast changed, colder air, stormy weather

Monday, October 10, 2016

There has been a significant change in our forecast this week which I felt warranted an update. First, we have much cooler temperatures on the way, colder than we are used to. Next comes a series of strong Pacific storms that have a chance at bringing us some strong winds at the end of the week, and a lot of rain.

Our first frost is possible, Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Might be a good time to think about getting exterior water pipes covered. Both Tuesday and Wednesday morning low temperatures are expected to be in the mid-upper 30's, which means exposed areas, such as open lawns and uncovered cars, could frost over.

Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons the temperatures are not expected to be as warm either. Instead of a high near 70, we are looking at a high temperature in the low-mid 60's.

Next, remember the storm moving in Wednesday evening? Yep, that didn't change much, only stronger than thought. Rain still is expected to start after midnight Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Models are still inconsistent but it looks like a 1-2 windstorm punch Friday and then again Saturday. Shoreline and Lake Forest Park areas might just be breezy but it is not off the table yet for this to turn into a serious wind event.

The storm Saturday looks to have more strength than the one Friday. Friday winds at this time look to peak right around the afternoon - early evening time frame. I will provide updates as models come to a more consistent solution on these two storms.

Stay tuned, and for current weather conditions visit

I think this is going to be an ugly winter but on the bright side we might even get some snow this year.
