A Wet July 3 and the Secret Sauce of Northwest Thunderstorms

1 min read

 My podcast is out and I talk about some wet weather coming in over the weekend, including thunderstorms.    And I tell you why thunderstorms are so rare in our area and the “secret sauce” of getting boomers.

The latest European Center forecast is for extraordinary amounts of rain over the next ten days across southern BC and northeast Washington (see below).  Just where we needed it to reduce the local wildfire/smoke threat.

The latest super-high resolution forecasts suggest some very strong, extensive thunderstorm activity on Saturday night.  Check out the forecast of the simulated radar image at 9 PM Saturday.   Wow.

July 4th, although cool, looks relatively benign.

My podcast also talks about thunderstorms and convection–and why we get so few.  The big enemy of local thunderboomers is the cool waters of the Pacific—but there are other problems as well.
