8 AM Update: The Oregon coast has opened up into scattered clouds. Here is the satellite image:
Further updates at 11 AM when all the model output is in. The big question for all transit lovers....head to Sequim or the coast?
I am getting a bit more optimistic that many of us will see the transit...or be able to view it with a modest drive. Each forecast run is clearing out more...particularly on the coast. Here are the cloud fields from the UW WRF model for 5 PM tomorrow...the first shows liquid water cloud content, the other, the simulated satellite view. The coast is generally clear...and even Sequim looks like a possibility. There appears to be a convergence zone over the central Sound...not good.
No guarantees....but looking better. More information tomorrow AM....cliff
