It shows the Kinder Downfall waterfall in the UK as actually turning into a… water"rise"? -- as strong winds push the waterfall back skyward.
Updated Thursday 5:25 p.m.
Our soggy pattern continues as November looms and has no signs of stopping any time soon. (Does that count as a rhyme?)
The storm today has tapped into some tropical moisture and thus the mild, drenching rains today. They'll continue through the early night then begin to taper off Halloween morning. Lows tonight will be around 50.
Cool, unstable air will move into the region behind the storm for Friday afternoon and Friday night. This will create a showers and sunbreaks/moonbreaks pattern that makes it a tough call for Trick-or-Treating as it might be fine for 20 minutes with the stars out, then along comes a drenching shower. Thunderstorm risk is pretty low so at least we have that off the table, but just pack along some rain gear just in case. Highs will be in the mid 50s but it'll cool rapidly in the evening with temps around 50 and perhaps even a bit of wind chill with a moderate breeze at times.
Some showers linger into Saturday but plenty of dry time in between with perhaps a few sunbreaks with highs in the mid 50s. A dying front moves through on Sunday for perhaps a little light rain here and there amid cloudy skies but not a super soaker.
No, that waits for Monday and Tuesday. Forecasting models are painting a very wet storm for late Monday into Tuesday that we'll have to watch for potential river flooding. Models now indicate well over 1" of rain in the lowlands with 2-5" in the Cascades and perhaps 5-10" in the Olympics. We'll keep an eye on it. Rain appears to taper off Tuesday afternoon and we get a brief lull before the next storm comes in late Wednesday into Thursday, although that one's not as intense.
So hope you like the rain, as the forecast is that it won't really wane :)
