WEATHER: Misty morning views, and rain possibly on the way

Thanks for the photos! Fog on the water this morning hinted at what might be on the way – rain.

The sky cleared up today, and sunshine’s in the forecast for tomorrow too, but what the National Weather Service calls “a weak front” arrives tomorrow night, with a chance of rain persisting through the weekend.

Not only has it been drier than usual – we’ve had many days with warmer-than-normal temperatures, too, like today, with 88 for a high, nine degrees above usual.

    Some rain would be most welcome.  This is also the day of the year when I usually notice a subtle change in the air and the light that says “fall”.  Not sure what this could be related to scientifically…?

      Right now the light says haze. It is darker than usual because of it.

      We just passed midsummer, the midpoint between summer solstice and fall equinox and thus the light change with our position. As of last week, we had already lost an hour of daylight (15:59 hours of daylight at solstice!!). If you pay attention around February 2nd you will notice in the week to 2 weeks after a tangible shift in the light as well since that is the exact midpoint between winter solstice and the vernal equinox. I’m very sensitive to light and seasonal changes and I could feel this one coming a couple weeks ago and hate the fact that it’s dark now before 9!!!!! Not ready for fall. The lack of rain and heat has created such incredibly dry conditions that it was eerie tonight walking and hearing all the leaves crunch and blow along the pavement as if it were already fall!!

    A lost football was found floating off Alki this morning.  Owners name was illegible.
