Easter Sunday Weather Update

Happy Easter!

Well no doubt you see the rain falling outside right now. You don’t need a weatherman to tell you that! But this is a particularly cool and wet storm with a gigantic band of heavy precipitation falling all along the Hood Canal extending as far south as Shelton and as far east as Bremerton.

I really hope you planned those outdoor Easter activities yesterday, because there really won’t be a good time today to do them. But then again if you’ve lived in Washington long enough you’ve likely found a way to get those outdoor activities done even if the rain is falling.

So we know today is going to be a rainy mess. What about tomorrow? It’s going to be active for sure with rain (at times heavy) and possibly hail, lightning and thunder. The atmosphere is really going to destabilize tonight which will open the door to some thunderstorms tomorrow. In fact, it looks like we have a decent chance so be on the look out! Hopefully I’ll snap some cool photos…

Skies clear with only a chance of showers for Tuesday before the dry weather takes hold Wednesday and Thursday. Highs will be close to 60º.

Friday through the weekend has been looking cloudier and cooler the past couple days so I suppose that’s where I’m going to have to trend. The models have been horribly inconsistent lately so we’ll see what happens…

Have a fantastic Easter Sunday and try to stay dry!
