So far the clouds are a bit more common than the formations Jerry Simmons photographed on Thursday (above). But the good news, unless you’re a big rain buff, is that things will dry up for at least a day or so – the forecast is that Saturday will be mostly dry until the chance of rain returns and holds out on Saturday night Sunday to a partly sunny King’s Day on Monday. As of this morning, the official rainfall (at Sea-Tac) for this time of year has been nearly three times normal, 7.58 inches (the National Weather Service says the seasonal norm is 2.64). More good news for lighting fans:
There is still no telling whether today’s sunset will be as photogenic as Thursday’s sunset that was photographed by Dan Ciske (above) and others (thanks everyone!), the official sunset time at 4:45 p.m. is almost half an hour earlier than the earliest sunset of winter.
