West Seattle scenes: Sunshine’s days may be numbered, rainlessly

Thanks to Barry for the sunset view above, and to Chad for the one below. The spectacular-sunset streak may not last too much longer, if the newest forecast is accurate – it’s predicting a string of cloudy days, starting shortly.

P.S. The National Weather Service offers this observation re: our rainlessness (sorry, the caps are theirs):

THE RECORD FOR THE LEAST NUMBER OF DAYS OF MEASURABLE PRECIPITATION FOR THE AUGUST 1ST TO SEPTEMBER 30TH TIME FRAME FOR SEATTLE IS 4 DAYS SET IN 1974. SO FAR THIS YEAR WE HAVE HAD ONLY 2 DAYS. THE RECORD FOR THE DRIEST AUGUST 1ST TO SEPTEMBER 30TH ON RECORD FOR SEATTLE IS 0.19 INCHES SET IN 1993. CURRENTLY THERE HAS ONLY BEEN 0.02 INCHES OF RAIN SINCE AUGUST 1ST. BOTH OF THESE RECORDS INCLUDE THE FEDERAL BUILDING RECORDS WHICH GO BACK TO 1891.

    Beautiful weather. I’ll miss it when the dismal rain and overcast becomes the routine.

    I can’t wait for rain. Until then, I’ll take the overcast.

    The clouds today made me have hope that winter will be here sooner than we think. I believe Seattle will have a nice snowy winter after this long strech of late sumer sunshine!

Sorry, comment time is over.
