July Rain Day

Update 7:30PM: You’ll see some dark ominous skies to the southeast as a cluster of storms near Puyallup continue moving northeast. These storms won’t affect us, however there is still a slight chance of storm development for the remainder of the evening.

Rain and the threat of storms will continue to diminish through the evening as the core of the upper level system moves through to the northeast.

At 6:30 a thunderstorm developed over the Puget Sound and intensified over West Seattle/White Center.

Update 9:00AM: Rain and heavy showers with thunder and lightning lit up across the south eastern portion of the lowlands this morning. Rain is expected to cover the entire area and more embedded thunderstorms are possible.

Severe thunderstorms tracked over Oregon on Tuesday and bands of showers moved through Western Washington through the evening. and even more rain is expected fall on us starting Wednesday morning and lasting throughout the afternoon. What is the cause of this un-summer like weather?

Yet another upper level low pressure system is the reason. This unseasonably wet weather system might bring more than a half inch of rain to the lowlands today as well as bring a chance of some isolated thunderstorms.

As is true with almost all of these upper level systems, they’re most visible on visible satellite and in model outputs above 500mb (18,000ft). Cliff Mass is also mentioning that daily rain records for July 23rd could be broken.

Get your umbrellas out, but stay inside if you hear thunder.
