Rain Watch

Posted by Rufus La Lone on

Rain watch continues.  Gee, it doesn’t look favorable in that regard.  
This weekend:  it will be on the windy side through the weekend.  Farm Drat. Cooler temps because of the onshore flow.  There could be a stray shower or two, esp north of Olympia, even that may hold off until later Sunday.  The wind should diminish a bit by Mon; although cooler air will remain overhead, the onshore pressure gradient weakens.  
Next week continues to look DRY, with a large area of Low pressure spinning its way south, well west of the coast.  The result will be a more southerly component to the air flow, with a breeze will be from the SW.  Mild temps, with higher humidity, esp by late week.  Dry the weekend of Jun 12,13.
Mid-June heat?  Well, model charts swing back-n-forth on the possibility of a notable heat wave during the week of Jun 14-18.  The most recent chart trend is for NO HEAT issues, just more of the same onshore flow, with showers possible esp north of Portland.  Other options have been for a delay in the heat-up, keeping the region cooler under an onshore flow until late week, then temps begin to build on into the weekend of Jun 19,20.  As stated earlier, this period is a bit far out there on the charts, so much will change.  
Bottom line: even with a few WA showers, we do not see needed rainfall over the next 2 weeks.  There is that outlier model run showing moderate rain north of Seattle Wed-Thu Jun 16,17.  Just say’n.
