West Seattle Weather Watch: New Year’s Eve might be OK

“The extended models are trending toward a drier forecast for the weekend,” says the newest “forecast discussion” from the National Weather Service. In the meantime, though, soggy/breezy will prevail for the next few days, according to the “special weather statement” that is in effect. (Thanks to Craig Young for the photo, taken at Constellation Park this morning as gusty winds collided with the “king tide.” Tomorrow, it’s a bit lower – 12.5 feet just before 8:30 am.)

    What? No on-the-scene reports from yellow-jacketed “disaster boy” Jim Forman of KING5? These KING tides are made for TV!

    HA-HA!!! good one Sonoma, funny. You do realize now that you tagged him ‘disaster boy’ his co-workers won’t let him forget that name now! KOMO,KIRO & KCPQ are all waiting for their ‘tides’ to appear. KING Tides for now! (disaster boy.., you’re still cool)

      The ex-TV side of me believes they’d probably have had someone standing out by the Constellation Park seawall this morning getting seasprayed if not for the White Center shooting. It’s been slow otherwise. KING’s morning feature reporter was down to preparing New Year’s recipes, last I looked. – TR

    That’s good that they’re doing weather and recipe stories though, right? Means there’s not a lot of crime to report? I have a houseguest from Australia who says “the news is scary here”.

Sorry, comment time is over.
