Rain and darkness coming, and a big question-mark for Monday
The next storm front is headed our way for Saturday morning, says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass, a professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington. And Sunday afternoon could get a warmer, wetter blast.
But, what's really intriguing him is the Monday forecast.
"The computer models don't agree," says Mass. Some bring the storm system's center north of Puget Sound, other models send the storm south.
"This is fairly strong ... so it could bring winds, even winds here to Seattle," on Monday, he says.
Does it seem unusually dark to you? Mass says, in fact, it's 30-60 times darker this week than during a sunny day in July. He explains in his blog and in the interview -- click the "listen" button above.
