On this week in weather history, August 29, 2015, a rare August windstorm hit the region with winds gusting to near 60mph between 11am and 2pm. The photo above was one of many examples from around the Shoreline and Lake Forest Park area of the widespread damage. I talked about the storm in this article on August 30, 2015.

The photo below is another example of the tree damage from that storm. When we get a storm like that out of season there is typically more tree damage than normal because everything is generally really dry and brittle. This photo was taken looking south on 7th Ave NE, from NE 195th St.

As of 5:32pm power outages were widespread even several hours after the strongest winds had died down.

Forecast: We have a northwest onshore flow typical for this time of year, which will keep the wildfire smoke out and temperatures seasonal. Temperatures are expected to reach near or just above 70°F all week, with the exception of Wednesday which could reach the mid-upper 70's. Lows are expected to be in the low to mid 50's all week and next weekend.

The marine onshore flow could be strong enough to bring morning drizzle or rain showers Monday morning, and again Thursday and Friday mornings. Overall, a very pleasant week ahead for us. This weather should continue through next weekend as well.

Here is our temperature graph for the month of August. You can see we pretty much returned to normal temperatures as we ended the month.
