Special Weather Announcement...

posted Nov 15, 2010, 8:24 PM by smike@guemesfire.org   [ updated Nov 15, 2010, 8:34 PM ]
COLD AIR IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OVER WESTERN CANADA THURSDAY OR FRIDAY. WHILE WEATHER GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO SHOW QUITE A BIT OF VARIABILITY...INDICATIONS REMAIN THAT CHANGES IN THE WIND FLOW ALOFT ON FRIDAY OR SATURDAY WILL ALLOW SOME OF THIS COLDER AIR TO OUR NORTH TO FILTER INTO WESTERN WASHINGTON.

WEATHER GUIDANCE ALSO SUGGESTS THAT THERE IS SOME RISK OF LOWLAND SNOW...OR MIXED RAIN AND SNOW SHOWERS OVER PORTIONS OF WESTERN WASHINGTON THIS WEEKEND. LATER FRIDAY OR FRIDAY NIGHT THE HIGHEST RISK OF LOWLAND SNOW WILL BE WHERE THE AIR IS COLDER...OVER THE NORTH INTERIOR. FARTHER SOUTH...THE COLD AIR WILL TAKE LONGER TO MOVE INTO THE AREA...PERHAPS SATURDAY OR SATURDAY NIGHT AND IT REMAINS UNCLEAR AT THIS POINT WHETHER THERE WILL BE SUFFICIENT MOISTURE IN PLACE BY THE TIME THE COLD AIR FILTERS IN.

NOW WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO THINK ABOUT HOW YOU COULD PREPARE FOR THE FIRST POSSIBILITY OF WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS IN THE LOWLANDS. ARE YOUR TIRES READY FOR SNOW COVERED ROADWAYS? ARE YOUR OUTDOOR PIPES AND FAUCETS WINTERIZED?

PLEASE MONITOR LATEST FORECASTS AND WEATHER STATEMENTS AS CONDITIONS EVOLVE THIS WEEK.
