So, my post yesterday was an April Fool’s prank. You gotta admit though, it was pretty good.
Anyway, looking over the models this morning, it appears as though some warmer weather will soon be affecting us in the Pacific Northwest. Take a look at the latest model extraction from the 12z GFS for Seattle! This is a program from Brian Schmit, so I gotta give him credit.
Look at those high temps! Starting Sunday, we could get pretty toasty around here. I, for one, am actually a little depressed about this… I love my cold, springtime showers and sunbreaks weather, but I’m sure many of you will be happy for a change. I DO plan to have some picnics in the UW quad, which should be super fun. I’ve already got one scheduled with some girls on a different floor in the dorm. We plan to eat tons of ice cream. Before then, we’ve got some weather to go through.
Take a look at this BEAUTIFUL storm above. Not every Pacific Northwest storm takes on such a picture-perfect appearance. Take a look at that spiral! Simply incredible. That’s a powerful storm, no foolin’ here. This satellite image was taken at 3 A.M., and the storm has degraded since then, but it is still very pretty.
