We had a very nice Moonbow (Lunar Rainbow) this morning. It is caused by the light of the moon rather than the sun.

The NWS just issued a Gale Watch for Hood Canal/Puget Sound for tomorrow and a High Wind Warning for Admiralty Inlet. There is a very interesting storm brewing off Vancouver Island.... A "Meteorological Bomb". Cliff Mass tells the story in his blog:

It appears that this storm is coming ashore off the Oregon coast and will not affect us as much as thought earlier. Cliff Mass covers this nicely here:
This is just a FWIW post.... But worth paying attention to. Many of the forecast models are hinting at a major wind storm for Friday night/Saturday morning. There is a lot of uncertainty this far out, but I think its important to be aware and prepare as best we can. Cliff Mass covers it very well in his blog this morning....

I was asked if this month has been abnormally windy. I created a measure that I have tracked since 2013. I call it "Wind Minutes". It is the number of minutes where the wind gusts are greater than or equal to 30mph. I put together a table this morning measuring November 1-8 since 2013.
YES.... This has been a VERY windy start to November..... And we are still counting for today....
