The Warm Front Cometh
Now that I have recovered from following the elections, back to weather.
Today should be a very pleasant day..cool, dry, with temps getting into the lower 50s. But change is on the way! An usually strong warm front will move through early tomorrow AM. The air mass will become much warmer and wetter, winds will strengthen and turn to the southwest along the coast and aloft...with rain, sometimes of moderate intensity moving in. There will be rain to our south over Oregon today...but it won't reach Puget Sound until after dinner. The heavy stuff won't get here until 4-8 am tomorrow...and both Thursday and Friday will be wet. The mountains (particularly the Olympics and north Cascades) will get very heavy rainfall...with some locations hit by 5-10 inches over the next two days.
So what do you do? Head to Sequim! There will be a nice rainshadow there tomorrow--as is typical under rainshadow conditions. Take a look at the precipitation forecast for the UW high resolution weather predictions attached.
