Why Does It Always Seem To Drizzle In The Morning?

SEATTLE - Paul wrote in wondering why it always seemed to be raining or drizzling when he'd go for his morning jog in Everett, only to see the sun break out 45 minute later.

It's likely Paul going jogging a lot on days when we have a marine push. That's when we have higher pressure offshore and lower pressure inland.

As the air rushes inland overnight, it carries with it the cool, cloudy weather from the coast into the Puget Sound area. Sometimes, the clouds are thick enough to produce some drizzle or light rain until the midday sun starts burning off the cloud layer. So in these weather patterns, if you hate to jog in the drizzle, maybe go for a late evening jog instead.

YouNews Almost Old Enough!! Almost Old Enough!!
About a week ago I posted 3 pictures of 4 newly hatched Dark-Eyed Oregon Junco chicks. These are the same little ones, 8 days old now. They should fledge by June 1. It's amazing how quickly they grow. A week ago there was tons of room in the nest.

Each year since 1946, the Nisei Veterans Committee has held a Memorial Day Service to honor all who have died in service of their country, especially members of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, the most highly decorated unit for size and length of service in the history of the US Military, and the Military Intelligence Service, a group credited by General MacArthur's staff with shortening the War in the Pacific by two years
