by Chris Scragg Puget Sound Weather Geek The last time we had a dry day above 75°F was ten days ago. Since then we’ve had scattered rain, cooler temperatures, thunderstorms, and even a windstorm. Many of us have embraced the sudden change in weather as the ultimate transition of seasons from summer to fall. However, Mother Nature does not play by the rules. Currently, we’re caught up in a soggy cold upper level low bringing showers and cool temperatures to the region. In the animation below you can see it quickly skirt away to the northeast as a prominent high pressure ridge builds over the Pacific. UW WRF-GFS Weather Model – ~25,000ft (500mb) temperatures and heights. Timing: Sunday Sept. 6 – Saturday Sept. 12 This building ridge will be the return of summer-like weather beginning by the middle of this week. By then we’ll be seeing less scenes like this: 60°F with rain.  And more views like like this: 75-80°F and dry. Hate it or love it, summer’s back!
