Wondering ... Is there an elevator in there?
The word from local weather forecasters is rain, and lots of it, is on the way for this weekend. The way they talk about an "atmospheric river" headed our way led me to "learn more" on the web this morning. I can't believe I'm only today finding the University of Washington's Department of Atmospheric Sciences website. Very cool and loaded with information interesting to a weather nut, like myself. Below is a screen capture of the home page. Then, one of the plots showing the "total precipitable water" headed our way on Sunday morning. Now, if you're like me, you might wonder exactly what "total precipitable water" means. So, a definition from Wikipedia, is also below. Let's see how it all turns out in the next few days.
