10:59 PM: Before we get to tonight’s forecast – sunset views! First three photos are from the Alki vicinity – top, by Annika Bowden. Next, by Russ Walker:

This next one is by Carolyn Newman:

And next – a Lincoln Park view by Jim Clark:

As for our lightning prospects – right now, it’s only happening far to the east, according to KING 5‘s lightning page. But commenter MetPatrick (“met” as in meteorologist) – who saw last night’s show coming, about 8 hours in advance – said a few hours ago that he still thinks it’s possible tonight.

2:28 AM UPDATE: Continuing to watch the aforementioned lightning radar – looks like it’s all moved directly north to north-central Washington now, so our chances of an encore appear to have dwindled.

  1. “Possible” is a far cry from the dire prediction for probable lightning, thunder, rain and hail I read on here only 12 hours ago.
    Such is the world of meteorolgy.

  2. WSB,
    Thanks so much for posting these great pix! Living over the rise in the Longfellow Creek watershed, I usually enjoy just the trailing radiance of our beautiful sunsets, so it’s lovely to share these views. Thanks for all you do!
