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.

Chased the sun most of the day but there were enough breaks in the clouds to capture the solar eclipse and the massive
sunspot AR2192. You could view the eclipse through the clouds. These images were taken with a Meade AR6 refractor,
a Nikon D3000 DSLR, a Thousand Oaks Glass (type2) solar filter.

My husband works at Vigor on Harbor Island. This double rainbow was directly over downtown Seattle, but these buildings were in the way. Still makes a pretty cool picture.
