it's stupid to compare Seattle weather to any city in California or Arizona. Seattle is a NORTHERN city. Didn't you understand that already???

Oh we KNOW they are VERY different. Why do you think we are so anxious to move?

Eastern Washington is very dry year around. Its sheltered by the Cascade Mountains. Yakima Valley is a couple of hours away from Seattle, has an annual average of 300 days of sunshine and just 8.00 inches of rain a year. Just over the mountains right now its sunny and in the mid 70's! In Seattle its mostly cloudy, drizzle and in the mid 50's.

Today is the perfect example of the stark contrast between Western Washington and Eastern Washington. People are always shocked to see that just a short drive away from Seattle you are looking at canyons, plateaus and blowing dust.

what a surprise! They changed the forecast again. This can't be serious. If the forecast says cloudy with showers, 2 hours later they change it to completely sunny

They only made the forecast like that to keep a couple people from jumping off Aurora Bridge.

Of course, it will backfire when the weather does not live up to expectations...

You have got to be the most depressing guy on these boards.

Summer starts mid July, nothing new here.

Last year June was much better though, and July was wet and rainy. Maybe this year will be the opposite!
