Hello sunshine, goodbye storm

Well, hello sunshine.

Here is how the weather super geek Cliff Mass characterized Tuesday night’s stormy turn:

“Tuesday’s convergence zone was a vigorous one with torrential rain, lightning, local flooding, and blackouts for thousands of customers, particularly in Seattle.”

Mass reported flooding in his Seattle neighborhood. Thankfully, the Key Peninsula did not get the brunt of the rain.

“Intense convective rain is often too much for our drainage systems that are generally not configured to take large amounts in short periods,” he writes on his blog.

I’m glad our brief flirtation with angry autumn weather is past.

It looks like sunny summer days are in store for the rest of the week, if the weather geeks are to be believed. We might see temperatures in the high 80s this weekend.
