Will it ever stop ?

Another night of rain and wind....another day of rain today....here's this morning's report from KOMO TV in Seattle.   I'm off to work for another day, the last day this week however, due to the Thanksgiving Holiday.   Have a good day,  Linda

 

Dear Linda,
13.31" is our total so far and it continues raining, November the wettest month in Seattle's weather record keeping history. (@ Sea-Tac)
I was downtown when the Tuesday Thunderboomer hit. The hail was tiny but enough to whiten the ground, the wind was very gusty, the rain came down in buckets and the lightning was vivid.

Our KOMO Cam atop Columbia Center captured a brilliant multi-legged lightning flash that appears to strike the Space Needle, the Washington Mutual tower, as well as several other buildings in the Downtown Seattle area. See our home page for the spectacular image.

Showers are still around this morning and the temperatures are cold in the upper 30s/low 40s.

Today will bring some sunshine and showers again, with some of those showers perhaps containing lightning or hail for a few locations just like yesterday (Isolated Thunderstorms). Highs will only reach the mid-upper 40s.

The forecast for Thanksgiving may be a tad stormier. Now it appears another wave will come in Thursday afternoon instead of Friday. So expect increasing rain as the day progresses, with highs in the mid-upper 40s. This storm is expected to bring heavy snow to the passes starting sometime after midday Thanksgiving. So if you're traveling over the mountains for Thanksgiving, best to go either Wednesday or even as late as Thursday morning. But try and be on the other side by midday or prepare for heavy winter driving conditions.

Rain changes to showers Thursday night, leaving us with another shower-and-sunbreak kind of day Friday. However, that Thursday storm will usher in some very chilly air, meaning Friday's highs will only be in the low 40s to mid 40’s.

A real nip in the air with showers and some sunbreaks is expected Saturday with highs in the low 40s,and then perhaps another wave Sunday with more wind and rain. Showers and sunbreaks return next Monday into Tuesday. As temperatures stay in the low 40s, snow levels will stay well under pass level (about 1,500-2,000 feet) so pass travel will be snowy at times.

Safe Travels

Updated Wednesday 4:28 a.m. more...
Sincerely,
KOMO 4 Weathercaster Jim Castillo

Just stopping by to wish you a warm DRY (as in stay INSIDE!) Thanksgiving.  I know I'm quickly turning to rust around here.  ::sigh::

I would be out of my mind if it rained that much here.  Here's hoping to a dry couple of days on the horizon.  Happy Thanksgiving by the way!
