A Wet Period Ahead As Tropical Moisture Streams Northward. My Podcast Has the Details.


My new podcast is now online.

You will learn about two major wet periods ahead, Sunday and Tuesday, with the potential for thunderstorms on the latter.   Before it is over, much of western Washington could receive 1-2 inches of rain, which is a lot for June.

And in the podcast, I explain the cause of Sunday’s wet weather:   a potent atmospheric river extending northeastward out of the tropics.   Also of interest, we might break some dew point records on Sunday, resulting in a relatively  “sticky” experience west of the Cascade crest.

You can listen to my podcast below or use your favorite streaming service.

Just to get you “prepared” for the wet, here is the latest forecast total through 5 PM Monday.  The reddish/orange colors are more than 2 inches!   The coast will be very wet, as will be the Willamette Valley.   Even the east-side gets a piece of it.

And more on Tuesday…
