West Seattle Weather Watch: Saturday sunset; more lightning?

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.

    “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.

    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!

Sorry, comment time is over.
