Positive for Drips

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Friday September 10

A difficult day of Remembrance tomorrow, Nine-Eleven.  We will never forget.  
The wx pattern charting for the next couple of weeks remains on track with our last discussion.  We are trending favorably to receive the first notable rainfall around the region since last June.  There is a band of moderate moisture moving to the NE along the east of the Cascades this morning, hence some cloudiness west side, as an upper-level Low spins on by.  This weekend continues to trend generally dry & mild.
The pattern shift due to arrive late next week is positive for the sound of rain drops.  The key change since our last update is that the 1st round of rain may arrive as early as next Fri, Sep 17.  If not that soon, at least the models KEEP the wet system as a ‘go’ for arrival sometime the weekend of Sep 18,19.  Breezy & cool conditions along with the precipitation.  Ah, the feel of fall.  
As the week of Sep 20 begins, there are two options on the charts: 1) expect a short dry period before the next fall rain arrives either mid-week with more again the following weekend or, 2) damp on/off through the first half of the week, then drying over the weekend of Sep 25,26.  WINDY at times, either way.  Which option verifies all depends on just where the center of the large trough of Low pressure sets up in the Gulf of Alaska.  We have time to firm up the forecast beforehand.
Again, models vary the timing of, but not the possibility for, rain.  In between the storms, temps will warm nicely over OR, while remaining rather cool for Puget Sound Patrons.  (Patrons on Vancouver Island, in SW BC and maybe the far NW corner of WA, are likely to receive large amount of rainfall throughout the second half of September.)  As noted, WIND will be a factor at times, mainly east side.
The week of Sep 27 is trending on the wet side, overall.  Fall.
