Monday May 22
Back in the Café. We’ll post a few images with the next several forecast updates from an amazingly warm, sunny Alaska cruise. Thanks for your patience during the absence. Here’s the dry outlook.
Mild temperatures, with afternoon breezes will be the general rule for the next couple of weeks. The onshore breeze will weaken a bit later this week, meaning warmer afternoons & less cloudiness.
The US holiday weekend is trending cooler, with increasing cloudiness, esp north of Chehalis for Sat & Sunday, a tad warmer on Memorial Day May 29. We cannot exclude a shower or two over the northern Puget Sound, southern BC, but overall, not enough moisture to set farming or outdoor activity back.
The week after Memorial Day is looking dry, with slightly warmer temperatures as the short work week ends. A weak front may pass by Tue, raising the chance for a shower here & there over the Puget Sound, similar to the weekend.
The first 7 days of June also chart as dry, with temps on the mild side, along with an onshore breeze increasing by Fri Jun 2 on through that weekend. Models indicate a warmer start to the Jun 6-9 week.
Overall, no major heat is foreseen over the next couple of weeks and no broad area rainfall. Good news for early Jun graduation ceremonies.
View looking east towards Sitka, as we sailed southbound across the Sitka Sound, Thu May 18. Temp was 74 that day! The rugged mountains of Baranof Island hold Sitka at their base. (Fun Fact: Sitka is the largest city in America by land mass as nearly the entire Baranof Island is in the city limits. Everything is big in Alaska.)
