Thunderstorms swing by for a little summer rainfall

July 25th, 2011 by Thea

The weather forecast has been calling for more clouds and cooler temperatures, but we weren’t expecting the booming thunder and bright lightning!

Thunderstorms in July? Just what we need! I understand that summertime rain happens, but we just got our sunny days back… OK, I’m done whining now. Here’s hoping forecasters are right, and we’re back to the warm summer sun later this week. In the meantime, here’s a look at the storm from the KIRO7 doppler radar as of 8:01 a.m. Looks like more rain is headed our way.

On top of that some folks over in Sunset Hill in Ballard have already lost power this morning.

The forecast, according to KING5, is still calling for highs in the 70s, with cooler temps later the next couple of days followed by clouds and sun.

Prepare yourself for windy weather

Our sister site, Phinneywood, snapped a picture of a tree this morning, which fell into two houses on the 100 block of 78th St. No one was hurt.

But don’t be suprised if you experience an extra gust or two heading to work. Windy weather is reportedly in the cards for the next couple of days. says, “In the greater Seattle-Tacoma-Everett areas, south winds will increase to 30 to 40 mph with gusts to near 60 mph after midnight on Monday and will continue into Tuesday morning.” Heavy rain is supposed to come along with the high winds. Cliff Mass says in his weather blog that, “We will see huge amounts in the Olympics and northern Cascades, some Olympic slopes getting more than 10 inches.” As you’ve probably noticed, it’s already raining in Queen Anne.
