Dr. Dale Ireland has outdone himself now. Our resident weather watcher with the great web camera in Silverdale had his camera rolling on Monday when we had a cold front pass through in the morning, followed by a period of unstable air, a brilliant rainbow, and even the passing of a Convergence zone. What to watch for: In the start, that's the steady, heavy rain of the cold front passing. As we head past noon, note the skies clear a bit, but this is when the cold, unstable air starts to pour in.

Watch as the clouds bubble and boil, followed by some strong showers moving through in the afternoon.
