Twas an great weather geek day. First there was sunshine earlier in the day but then it started to cloud up. Didn't get all that warm today (only in the 50's) and a half hour before sunset it was already down to 39. That cold air from Alaska is certainly here.
Had several bands of hail pass through late afternoon and tonight. At times it was coming down pretty hard:
While taking this picture of the first band of hail to roll through, I saw my neighbor running back home along the mud of low tide. I figure he was out clamming and got caught by the hail.
About a half hour later, I had a really strong band of hail and took video (up top of this post). Snow is falling in the Coast Range and the Cascades.
Currently 34 outside. The Jotul wood stove is blazing and keeping it toasty warm inside.
