Models are still all over the place for the main event. It will almost certainly be pretty bad on the coast. Not so sure about inland spots like Seattle, Tacoma and Spokane though.

We might get 1/4" of rain here. If we're lucky.

I do miss the Western Washington fall storms! Jealous!

Said it might be similar to the Columbus Day storm. I well remember that one, it
was a doozy! I was on my way to the hospital for a shot for a migraine that wouldn't go
away, we had to backtrack to Snoqualmie to get up on I-90 from Fall City because
the Fall City-Preston Road was impassable. When we finally got on the highway, big
Douglas firs in the median were falling like dominos.

Models are now coming into agreement. If they verify, it is going to be a barnbuster, with a ~960mb low passing right over the Olympic Peninsula. We are battening down the hatches.

This is my forecast

Rain, mainly before 11pm. The rain could be heavy at times. Low around 47. East wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 25 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New precipitation amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

The maintenance guy at work did clean out the storm drains this morning though. If we get any gully washers, we are (at work and at home actually) at the bottom of hills.

Drum - If the models verify and you are in N Central state as opposed to S Central state, you are gonna get a lot more than 1/4" in the next few days.

haha the Columbus Day storm was 1962. I was thinking of one in the late 80s early 90s that I thought was also on Columbus Day.

I knew it was 'Something' Day! It was the Inauguration Day storm.


The January 20, 1993 "Inauguration Day" storm was another major event, at least for the Seattle Area. This was a 976 mb low at landfall. The strongest official gusts do not show up on this list, and include 70 mph at Boeing Field, WA, and 74 mph at Renton. In terms of property loss, this was one of the most damaging storms in the history of the Pacific Northwest.

The Inauguration Day storm was a cyclone that tracked across the Olympic Peninsula, as Sisyphus posted this one Saturday is forecast to do. :O

It is supposed to be nasty in the morning Friday here in Auburn as well.

1.5 to 5 inches of rain.

For the FIRST rain event of the season, that is extraordinary. The wind will be big as well. There are supposed to by 40 to 50 MPH gusts here in the foothills, and as much as 100 to 110 at the summit passes.

Radar is already showing elevated rainfall approaching about 250 miles north..,

Are they getting snow at the higher elevations, AB? I remember when I was a kid that most Halloweens there was already snow on the ground. No one bothered with a costume because our mothers always bundled us up in heavy coats and snow boots.

Lost power for three hours about midnight...put the battery lanterns on night light mode, went back to bed. Spent the morning putting new batteries in the weakling. Ground is still soaking up all the rain. Lightning this morning, but not near, dogs pretty calm.
Tornado damaged Manzanita, pretty little town on the north Oregon coast, but no injuries.
Waiting for updated forecast for tonight and tomorrow.

Tornadoes of EF2 strength are almost unheard of in Western Washington/Oregon. Crazy stuff!

Occasionally we get an EF0 up on the East Wenatchee bench. Barely more than a dust devil. We get a lot of those a little higher on the Waterville Plateau.

According to the NWS, it's windier here than it is in Seattle right now.

I was just out sitting on the porch and it's weird to see the clouds
hauling ass from the ESE.

Planned to eat dinner at 2, just got everything on the plates and the power went out for four hours. Good timing!

Things have simmered down, no damage, zillions of leaves to rake. Standing down from battle stations....

Default Nasty cold early Winter coming ?

Early Winter USA ?
Quote:
The Post cites meteorologist Judah Cohen, who uses the Arctic
Oscillation as a predictor of winters, writing that greater-than-normal
October Eurasian snow cover tends to lead to large blocking highs that
steer cold air southwards into the middle latitude regions.
Early Winter Europe ?
Quote:
After a summer like warm September in Central Europe, things have cooled down significantly, with Central European temperatures running below normal so far this October. German climate skeptic site wobleibtdieerderwaermung.de here writes that there are now signs of an early winter hitting Central Europe, with freezing temperatures and snow forecast for early November.

Well, we had a nice warm September, but it took until August for summer to even really arrive here. It was really cold for a long time, well into July AFAIR.
