It shows the Kinder Downfall waterfall in the UK as actually turning into a… water"rise"? -- as strong winds push the waterfall back skyward.

We've had the Saturday windstorm and the Hurricane Ana remnants Tuesday. How about for the third storm we go with a merger?
A storm just off the coast of Oregon is going to mesh with a big trough and cold front swirling in the Gulf of Alaska, and combined it's about to make for another very rainy period.
The lull holds through the evening and much of the night, but steady rains will be developing from the south in the pre-dawn hours and will be raining fairly hard for much of Thursday, so both commutes? Yuck. Highs will be around 60, as this has tapped into some warmer air from the south.
Rain goes through Thursday night and into the late morning Friday before changing to showers and decreasing for the afternoon. I'm a little more pessimistic about keeping the rain away for Trick-or-treaters, but rain will be on the decrease, so there is hope. At least wind isn't looking like much of a factor here either Thursday or Friday, just a lot of rain - enough that the Skokomish River has gone back on Flood Watch. High temperatures Friday will be in the upper 50s but will be cooling rapidly behind the front so probably about 50-53 or so for trick or treat time.
We've got a brief break for Saturday to kick off November, so this is definitely your time to get outdoor stuff done, because rain returns for Sunday and we've got another generally stormy week on tap for next week with highs in the low-mid 50s. Sounds like I'll have to come up with more names :)
