My favorite Weather 101 professor at the University of Washington is predicting a major wind storm headed for Washington’s coastline and the straits this weekend. Luckily for those of us in the Puget Sound region we’ll be protected. The most we’ll probably see is the predicted rain that is set to hit the area starting tonight.
But, for those of you who love a good fall storm and have time this weekend, maybe a trip to the coast is in order to watch the waves? I always love watching storms move in from offshore — it’s the shepherding in of the winter season.
