ADVISORY: Rainstorms Are A-Comin’ Back…
The National Weather Service has issued a “Special Weather Statement” alerting us all that, despite the recent sunny weather, the rain is a-comin’ back, starting Tuesday (Oct. 13th), so be sure to take heed an move all that crap in your yard and driveway back inside.
Or pull out the blue tarps so Burien can look like it should!
Here’s the statement, which was published at 4:44pm Sunday Oct. 11th:
Statement as of 4:44 PM PDT on October 11, 2009
… A series of Pacific storms will affect western Washington this week…
Columbus day will be a transition day from the recent cool and dry spell to an active… wet pattern. Look for a series of Pacific storms to affect the area starting Tuesday. The Tuesday system is expected to bring windy conditions to the coast and Cascade foothills as well as precipitation to the entire area. Chilly…east winds in the Cascade passes will mean that the precipitation will begin as snow or a rain and snow mix. However… significant snowfall amounts are unlikely.
Unsettled… wet conditions will persist on Wednesday as the region remains under the influence of a large area of low pressure over
the eastern Pacific. A much wetter system may affect the area during the latter part of the week.
Monitor forecasts from the National Weather Service in Seattle for updates on these upcoming events.
