It was supposed to be sunny today, but I have a feeling we might not see any sun in the Valley. Looks like a pretty heavy cover, and there is some moisture on the radar as well.

It’s all getting us ready for next week, when fall is going to hit us. It was previously forecast that the remains of Typhoon Melor would come through our neck of the woods Tuesday and Wednesday (actually crossing into Oregon and Northern California). But that looks to be only half true. The low pressure center from Melor has now gone up into Alaska, delivering very heavy satellite returns (dark brown) for rain up there.

So that means we might not get a whole lot of wind from the system this week (sorry Eve!) but we will still be getting plenty of rain. The GFS is predicting 8mm on Tuesday and 90mm through Saturday. The extra-long GFS prediction has us getting another 100mm into the week after with some more fronts moving in. There is a possibility for wind as well with pressures going down to 990mb… but as with this time last week, that forecast could easily moderate by the time we get there.

UPDATE:
Happy Thanksgiving! I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy thanksgiving and also let you all know that I’ve fixed a few lingering bugs on the website. If you click on the Graph images now they will all go to a proper page for each and give you the ability to download a giant zoomed-in version of the graph. It also works for the Custom Graphs created in the “Search Previous Weather Data” section of the Almanac.

I’ve also updated the Full Size webcam page (click on the alberniweather webcam in the current conditions) so that it’s formatted properly. If you see anything else that is out of place, just let me know.

  1. I love the rain! I put a saying on the board at work…
    When life gives you rain, play in the puddles!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

  2. Wow… fall/winter season outflow winds that are not cold. In fact, its gotten warmer, but the windchill is noticable.
