Rain Shadow

Posted: October 8th, 2019

The local radar is down for maintenance, so it’s a bit difficult to tell what’s really going on, but it certainly didn’t rain as much as forecast in and around Seattle yesterday. The wind ended up being the bigger story, which also probably had to with the size of the west-to-east-oriented rain shadow (above).
