Now the End is Clear

The computer forecast models have now spoken. There shall be neither large snow storm nor Arctic cold air in our immediate future.

The high pressure protecting us shall gradually weaken until early next week Pacific storms will again bring us rain, wind, snow for skiers, etc., etc.

The longest dry spell in January in Seattle was 15 days from January 16th through the 30th in 1963 (the year I graduated from West Seattle High School).  This current dry spell will probably top off at 11-12 days.

Hi John L--here's similar weather from another January. I'm combining weather-blog reading and history reading (that's The Pioneer History of Enumclaw, compiled by the Women's Progressive Club in 1941) and thinking of folks getting around through the woods on a cold, frosty, foggy day like today, 120+ years ago. "In January, 1891, there was a cold spell, which lasted for about three weeks. There was very little snow, and there was just a crust frozen on top of the mud and water. This crust was not strong in all places to hold up a horse and rider, and many times the horse would break through and go into mud and water more than knee deep. During the last week of this cold spell, a heavy fog came in, and froze onto everything."
