Windstorm Update #2

Sunday, September 29, 2013
11:27 p.m.

Hey everybody, this is just going to be a quick post because I gots to go to bed soon. Anyway, the GFS was correct and the NAM was not. The NAM is often called the “Never Accurate Model” for that very reason. We still have high wind warnings up, but I am doubtful that many places will see gusts above 60, and the NWS is too.

Here are some more shots from that same satellite. They were taken at 7:30 and 11 p.m. respectively.

In the second image, you can see that the dry slot is starting to fill up. This is a sign that the storm is weakening.

However, we will still see some pretty hefty winds tonight. Some exposed headlands, like Alki or West Point, could see gusts to 50 miles per hour. Most of the region will likely be in the 35-45 mph range.

We will definitely still have heavy showers throughout the night, but the steady stuff is over. Although it will be paltry compared to this weekend, the Monday-Wednesday time frame of next week looks soggy as well. After that, we finally see that thing we call sunshine and highs rebound into the 60s.

Have a nice night!!!
