Oh, hello funnel clouds.

This Friday, June 4th, there were reports of funnel clouds in Monroe. Yes, funnel clouds in Washington. Here are some pictures of such:

These images were provided by viewers of KIRO-TV.

This is a complete twist of the weather we had been seeing earlier this year. We’re in for a cold summer.

Snow in… March?

You heard me right. Beginning today at around 11:00am it began snowing. At first it was barely noticeable (except everyone at school went crazy.)

The heat wave is here

The forecast for Western Washington says at least 4 days in the 90F range, and we could even be setting some records this week. The official all-time high for Seattle is 100 degrees F, and some weather forecasters predict that the temperature may be as high as 104 degrees F at Sea-Tac Int’l Airport, the official weather gauge location for the Seattle area.

Yesterday, I was driving home when I saw a few menacing clouds that looked like thunder clouds. They were towards the east, so I reasoned there might be some kind of thunderstorms there. Today, I haven’t seen a cloud in the sky. It’s 85 degrees in my house, 95 outside, and not many people here have air conditioning. At least I have a fan.

So for all of you feeling this heat, drink plenty of water and don’t move around too much unless you have to (writing at OKS blog is a great way to cool off!)

Too much snow!

This post is a continuation of “Snow in Seattle 2008”.

Where I live, Renton, we do not get so much so; not the most snow, nor the least. But this year seemed different.
