On & Off Rain

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Friday October 6
Sunshine rules this weekend.  Next week will be a different story.  Here’s the rundown of possible wx the next 14 days.
Beautiful, warm weekend is upon us.  Temps topping in the upper 70s to lower 80s, depending on your location; coastal areas will be a tad cooler.  A good time to enjoy a “tug summer in” BBQ.  Forecasters should "Never say never", however, this could be the last ’summer-like’ weekend of 2023, at least regarding warmth.
All indications are for a pair of classic fall storms to arrive starting late Sunday night Oct 8 - plenty of rain.  WINDY, at times too.  A second, potentially stronger tightly wound storm, with a 988-992 mb center, could make landfall over the Olympic Range late afternoon Tue Oct 10 or before midnight, ushering in a gusty night.  Not a super-wet system.  Showers Wed, with clearing in the afternoon.  Cool.  We may catch a rain break on Thu and Fri Oct 12-13, with temps reaching the upper 60s to lower 70s, along with an offshore breeze.
Annular Solar Eclipse - hopefully, when the band of totality passes over central/southern OR, the sky will be free of clouds for direct views of the event.  Current model scenarios chart a Low developing overnight Friday just west of northern CA — with a tracking direction along the OR & WA coasts during the day Saturday.  Hopefully, high clouds from the warm front approaching the OR coast will NOT block a direct view to the east of the ‘Ring of Fire' Eclipse (just after 9 a.m.).  We’ll update this again on Fri the 13th.
Rain & showers from the aforementioned storm will move north all the way into southern BC on Sat.  Winds should not be as strong as the Oct 10 storm.  Clearing Sunday & Monday, with another system bearing lots of RAIN moves into the PNW sometime on Tue Oct 17.  We see a continuation of an on/off rainy pattern through at least Oct 25th.  Storms are likely to be 48 - 72 hours apart.  Mild temps.
