West Seattle Weather Watch: ‘Lumpy rain,’ and an alert ahead

10:24 AM: Two weather notes this morning – First, just received a text (206-293-6302 any time) noting “lumpy rain” north of Roxbury. The National Weather Service did warn of “rain mixed with snow” in this morning’s forecast update – increasing winds, too, and we’ve seen them kick up here. The NWS also has a Special Weather Statement out for the region, including our area, about a big storm headed this way late Sunday and into Monday – wind and rain mentioned, not snow, though “snow showers” are noted as possible in the aforementioned forecast. P.S. Could be extra-problematic in waterfront areas if high wind coincides with the ongoing high tides – Beach Drive Blog has a mashup of all that info together.

4:57 PM UPDATE: The Special Weather Statement has since been upgraded to a High Wind Watch for late Sunday night into early Monday morning – see it here.

    FYI: “West Seattle” actually spans both sides of Roxbury, including to the south in the neglected and rejected area known as Arbor Heights. It’s a shame that 50 years after annexation Arbor Heights is still treated like no man’s land…!

      Yes, you’re right, on the north side it does. We are extremely aware of the borders (and keep trying to explain to people that, a bit further east on Roxbury, West Seattle goes all the way to the county line and does NOT end where the “White Center” signs start in South Delridge). I wasn’t quite sure who the tipster was but I do know now – he’s north of Roxbury, east of 35th, so I’ve amended – TR

    WSB, could you clarify? What does north and south on Roxbury mean, when it’s an east-west street? And what goes all the way to the county line? I must be missing something.

    I see you’ve corrected your posting to say east on Roxbury instead of south. I think you must mean city line where you say county line. Yes?
