SEATTLE - Here's one to trick your friends with. Most associate summer as June, July and August as fall begins in September, but we're a little different out here in Seattle.

June's average high temperature is 69.6 degrees, while September's is 70.2. September's average low temperature is also a bit higher -- 51.9 vs. 51.7 for June.

The all time September high temperature record (98, set Sept. 2, 1988) is higher than June's (96, set both June 9 and June 30 in 1956.)

Although September is a bit wetter, averaging 1.63 inches of rain versus 1.49 inches for June.

Along the same lines, October (59.7) is usually warmer than April (58.2), although October gets about a half-inch more rain than April as we start into the rainy season.

This was a once-in-a-lifetime shot of a brilliant sunrise on the water of Poulsbo. When I saw the pink light streaming into my window early that morning, I ran outside to capture this photo. Once I saw the photo, I realized that the sunrise created a fire and ice effect that was stunning.

Driving toward Silverdale on Hwy 3, from brilliant fall sunshine, into this churning black storm, was unlike anything I've witnessed in Washington. Sheets of rain, gusts of wind, and a completely black sky overtook the area, while the periphery stayed sunny.
