The Latest Forecast
Unfortunately, we have begun the transition out of the fine, sunny weather we have enjoyed during the past two weeks. Take a look at the latest infrared satellite image this morning...a line of moisture is streaming towards the NW and if you look close you can see the swirl of clouds associated with a low center off our coast.
Today there will considerable clouds with few sun breaks...temps reaching to near 60F and a few light rain showers. A heavier band of showers is expected tonight and tomorrow am. The story of the weekend will be clouds and occasional showers...but no major systems. I will give the details tomorrow.
An interesting aspect of weather here is the November transition...October can often be quite nice, but during the first two weeks of November we rapidly transition to the worst weather of the year. The last week of November is our meteorological black hole...the stormiest, wettest, windiest period of the entire year. Barbeque turkey is a NW tradition for a reason....
