Ash is Falling in Seattle
« on: September 05, 2017, 01:34:19 PM »
The updated forecast for Seattle:   ash flurries today with low visibility and cooling smoke shade. 

I have been forecasting around here for a long time and have never seen a situation like this, with ash falling around western Washington and a smoke cloud so dense one would think it is low stratus deck.   No sun was visible this morning.

I am mean this is something new.

Outside my home there is ash on all horizontal surfaces.   To illustrate, here is a photo taken by Logan Johnson, the head of the Seattle NWS office, from his home in Bothell.  His car looks like it has a bad case of dandruff.

I woke up this morning to a light dusting of ash on everything. The air is heavy and acrid. The sun came up over the hillside and was the most intense orange I have ever seen.

Wildfires in British Columbia and Eastern Washington aren't unusual but smoke from them transversing the Cascades and flowing down into the Puget Sound area where I live is unheard of.

On the good side, it was forecast to reach 98 degrees today and now they're saying 90.

whoopee!

As safe as ever. It's less smoky than when I used to play in the bars - and probably better smelling too ;'}

Thanks JF - I washed it off right away. I don't know if it was a cooincidence or not but at one point today my smoke alarm started chirping. Not a steady alarm but a series of chirps about a minute apart.

I went ahead and installed a fresh battery...
