Just how stormy is it?

If you really want to know and don’t have weather gadgets that can tell you … our favorite weather geek advises us there’s a close second. The National Weather Service posts “current observations” online from stations including Alki Point. Go to this page and look for K91S; I don’t even know what all the stats are, but the T column is temperature, the SP column is wind speed, the GS is wind gusts (when applicable). If you’re more inland, KBFI is Boeing Field, which is a little closer to much of West Seattle than the standard Sea-Tac stat cited in many spots for “official” city weather tracking. And if you want to go non-official, Weather Underground lists two people in WS with personal weather stations: one described as “North Admiral,” and “Weather at the Hoffmeisters’.”

    I maintain a weather station in West Seattle around webster and 35th.


    I don’t use the standard software so my info is not posted on http://www.weatherunderground.com

    Also, when browsing the personal weather station listing on weatherunderground.com, there is a link before the personal weather station list that pulls up a google mashup mapping the local weather stations.

Sorry, comment time is over.
