Seesaw week of weather ahead

Amtrak Train Hit MudslideFall’s fist wind storm has come and gone. Whidbey Island gets the prize for highest wind gusts this afternoon, reaching 53mph. The average was 15-30 across Western Washington with rain amounts generally in the .25”-.50” range. Places like Jefferson County picked up 1.57” while Renton measured .35” of rainfall so far.

Now we move into a new work week and series of fronts pushing this way which will lend this coming week to a “seesaw” weather pattern.  Scattered showers and cooler tomorrow as highs land close to 60 degrees, but sunny skies and temperatures near 70 return by Friday.

The outlook for the next 3 months is neutral or equal chances. Currently, there is no trend leaning toward a La Nina or El Nino weather pattern. I will say that we have seen some of our biggest flood years during “neutral” falls, but that remains to be seen this year.
