Gold Medal forecasting

See, this is a verification for Olympia, so it’s an Olympics joke. Get it? Moving on. Their weather was just about as expected, in that it was cloudy, but with the sun breaking through by Saturday, when the temperature climbed to 75. That must have felt like a dream to residents of the Olympia, who had been shrouded in drear for so long. Accuweather got the gold in this one.
Actuals: Friday – High 69, Low 47
Saturday – High 75, Low 42

Grade: B

Olympia, Washington

I am almost certain this is the first time we have ever forecast for Washington’s state capital, at the southern reach of Puget Sound.

At 154PM, PT, Olympia was reporting a temperature of 62 degrees with blustery south winds and overcast skies. A weak wave rode directly over the Pacific Northwest, however the clouds over Puget Sound and Olympia more likely had to do with an overall onshore flow. Clear skies at Shelton were likely to build southeast to Olympia before all was said and done today.
As the upper trough goes about it’s business in the Canadian Rockies, expect a clearing trend for the region, while a system organizes in the Canadian Praries. There may be a few morning clouds early tomorrow morning, while Saturday looks to be magnificent.
