Monday August 16
Two solutions for the end of August, one includes chance for rain. Beforehand, here’s what to expect.
Cooler, pleasant temperatures, with afternoon NW breezes, will be the story all this week, and possibly into the coming weekend. It may warm up several degrees late in the week, but cool right back down as another push of marine air moves over the region. Temps east side will trends seasonal. NO RAIN.
As noted, next weekend should be pleasant, with morning marine cloud deck, esp over the Puget Sound. We will not rule out a dust-buster shower for the far north of WA & southern BC.
By Tue Aug 24, models build back a rather warm ridge of High pressure, so temps will return to the upper 80s, lower 90s for a few days in many west side locations. However, another cooler pattern should return, yet again, by the last weekend of August. This cool trough of Low pressure may be deep enough to generate a few SHOWERS, mainly over the Puget Sound, north. Baby steps?
Aug 30 - Sept 2. Here’s where we get a split decision in the long-range outlook: an outlier model run hints at a “true” wet system moving in from the NW, to end the month with what some remember as RAIN; the other solutions rebuild that warm ridge again for a string of warm summer temps for this period. Lots of time to learn which scenario Nature will select, but that’s what is charting right now.
A quip from the ‘Net: “Remember, if you lose a sock in the dryer, it comes back as a Tupperware lid that doesn’t fit any of your containers."
