The Wx Ahead

Posted: October 14th, 2019
NWS Seattle

This week is pretty much exactly when fall rains are supposed to begin, and thanks in part to the pattern-busting remnants of Typhoon Hagibis, the atmosphere is obliging.

Forecast rainfall amounts are not concerning but it’ll likely be the wettest period we’ve experienced since early April. Up to two inches should fall across the City by Sunday, and double or triple that should fall in our watersheds. Rain should also change to snow across Cascade peaks by Saturday.

Models suggest that this wet pattern will continue into about the middle of next week.
