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.
