    Statement as of 10:38 AM PDT on September 14, 2013

    ... A vigorous low pressure system will bring showers and scattered
    thunderstorms to western Washington Sunday into Sunday night...

    A big change to the western Washington weather pattern will unfold
    Sunday. Low pressure off the Oregon coast Sunday morning will lift
    northward bringing a change to unsettled weather across western
    Washington. A strong marine push is expected ahead of this system
    around late morning or midday Sunday producing a burst of breezy
    southwesterly winds. Securing loose items like garbage cans and
    patio furniture is recommended. Those on the water in watercraft
    should be especially cautious of the rapid onset of winds.

    The air mass aloft will become unstable during the day Sunday.
    Monsoon moisture over the northern Great Basin will also be pulled
    into the Pacific northwest. This combination will result in
    widespread showers and scattered thunderstorms. General rainfall
    amounts from noon Sunday through midnight Sunday night will range
    from a quarter to a half inch across the area. However... some
    thunderstorms could produce locally heavy rain amounts over an inch
    in a short period of time. This could result in localized ponding of
    water on roadways and may overwhelm drainage systems.

    Monitor the latest forecast and statements from the National Weather
    Service. The latest information can be found on
    www.Weather.Gov/Seattle/ ... listening to NOAA Weather Radio and
    National Weather Service social media.

    Weather reporting has become a bother lately. They used to say there will be high winds and rain. You knew with that warning that you had to batten down the hatches. Now they tell you to put your things away or tie them down.

    Just last week they had some thunder and lightening coming through the area. When you heard that you knew to get in out of the weather. Now they tell you to. Anybody with common sense knows to get out of the weather. Lately when they report things they feel that they have to tell you what to do as if you didn't already know. They must think that we are a bunch of new born babies and don't know anything.

    Haven't you heard, Jim?...

    It's because personal responsibility has become a thing of the past.
    Everyone seems to want someone else to take care of them and if something goes wrong in their life, someone else is to blame.

    Weather forecasts are entertaining sometimes though. And sometimes they get it right!

    I've read that the Pacific NW is one of the most difficult areas for predicting the weather.

    It can change very quickly due to our close proximity to the Pacific.

    The weather folks in the mid-west have a much better chance at getting it right.

    I hear ya' Daryle. My post wasn't meant as disrespect for weather forecasting and it's value to society. Rather it was in agreement with what Old Man Jim said above. I really don't want the weather forecasters telling us things like what Jim mentioned. We can figure that stuff out for ourselves.
    I wish the folks in Colorado well.

    You sit there staring at the boob tube like a drone, and when they tell you something you dont like.... you get pissy:rolleyes: . Instead of having the shit sandwich fed to you while in your recliners, find the information yourself.

    Sometime in November it will begin to rain here in Clear Lake and continue on and off, but mostly on, until around the fourth of July. At which point the rain will change from on and off steady to thunderstorms more reminiscent of what the rest of the country experiences.

    That's what he's hoping.
    Don't be afraid of the rain. There's no soap in it.

    I have family in Clear Lake and lots of history related to that town from both sides of my folks. But even more important, it is the gateway to the south Skagit Highway and the place of fishing in my youth.

    I think that I had a brain fart. Of course I know where Clear Lake is. I've been through that little burg a few times.

    Calling it a burg is giving it more than it deserves. Has anyone opened Evelyn's back up?
