This is not traveling weather

October 16, 2014

Bell Harbor, Seattle

Just pulled the weather forecast for Cape Flattery, our first hurdle on the way toward San Francisco.

SE wind 25 to 35 kt rising to 30 to 40 kt with gusts near 55 kt after midnight. Seas 8 to 11 ft with a dominant period of 9 seconds. A chance of rain in the evening... Then rain after midnight.

Here's the storm that's slamming into the Washington coast tonight.

Looking at the longer range forecast, it looks like we might have a break in about a week.

At the moment we're enjoying another beautiful afternoon here in Seattle.

That's it for now.
