WeatherWatcher: Windy, uncertain forecast

Friday, November 2, 2018

We've had a windy evening with wind gusts up to 33mph as recorded at the Richmond Beach weather station. You may have noticed we also remained mostly dry on Halloween. There has been a significant change in the forecast.

The heavy rains we've been expecting have been either to the north or to the south of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. The Olympic Mountain rain shadow has been strong with these storms, keeping us mostly dry relative to other areas in Western Washington.

Going forward, we are expecting breezy to windy conditions to continue into Friday morning. Winds are not strong enough to meet high wind advisory or warning criteria, gusts could be between 30-40mph. Rain is expected to pick up overnight and into Friday morning with breezy conditions continuing through Friday afternoon. Friday evening there's a slight chance of showers, and winds will be calming down a bit.

Saturday is expected to be mostly cloudy with a chance of showers, then in the afternoon or evening the next weather system arrives with more winds up to 40mph and rain. Rain is expected to continue through Sunday with the early part of next week being cloudy with showers.

Temperatures are mild, in the mid to upper 50's which is typical for this time of year, especially when we have these atmospheric river type systems moving through. We may see a break in the active weather mid-late week. Timing of these systems with this forecast may be somewhat uncertain and rains may hit a half day or full day early or late.
