Rain heading our way

| No Comments
It has been a very dry summer (almost broke the record of 51 days without rain) and then a glorious Indian Summer. We are expecting some rain and boy howdy -- from the National Weather Service:
SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SEATTLE WA
406 PM PDT WED OCT 10 2012

WAZ001-503>519-111315-SAN JUAN COUNTY-WESTERN WHATCOM COUNTY-SOUTHWEST INTERIOR-EAST PUGET SOUND LOWLANDS-WESTERN SKAGIT COUNTY-EVERETT AND VICINITY-SEATTLE/BREMERTON AREA-TACOMA AREA-ADMIRALTY INLET AREA-HOOD CANAL AREA-LOWER CHEHALIS VALLEY AREA-OLYMPICS-EASTERN STRAIT OF JUAN DE FUCA-WESTERN STRAIT OF JUAN DE FUCA-NORTH COAST-CENTRAL COAST-WEST SLOPES NORTHERN CASCADES AND PASSES-WEST SLOPES CENTRAL CASCADES AND PASSES-406 PM PDT WED OCT 10 2012

...HEAVY RAIN POSSIBLE ACROSS WESTERN WASHINGTON THIS WEEKEND THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK...

A PATTERN CHANGE WILL BRING WET WEATHER BACK TO WESTERN WASHINGTON FRIDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND AFTER A PROLONGED DRY SPELL. WEAK WEATHER SYSTEMS WILL AFFECT THE AREA ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY WITH WIDESPREAD MEASURABLE RAINFALL EXPECTED. A STRONGER SYSTEM WILL THEN STEER HEAVY RAIN INTO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST LATE SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH POSSIBLY MONDAY NIGHT.

IF THE FORECAST MODELS ARE CORRECT...THIS WILL BE THE FIRST SIGNIFICANT STORM OF THE SEASON. SOME FORECAST MODELS SHOW SEVERAL INCHES OF RAIN IN THE MOUNTAINS WITH SHARP RISES EXPECTED ON THE RIVERS. THE OLYMPICS MAY SEE 4 TO 8 INCHES OF RAIN THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT...WITH 2 TO 5 INCHES POSSIBLE IN THE CASCADES. AS FOR THE LOWLANDS...THE COAST MAY SEE 1 TO 4 INCHES...WITH 1 TO 2 INCHES OF RAIN IN THE INTERIOR.
Fun times -- I hope there is a dry period after this as there are a few projects I would really like to get finished before the winter sets in... God knows we need the water.
