the convergence zone has set up

| comments

You would almost think we know what we are doing.... the Puget Sound convergence zone has set up, having pushed southward during the last few hours...and as expected we are getting wet snow at higher elevations on the eastern side of the zone.... see the image... The surface map clearly shows the convergence zone, with northerly winds in the N. Sound converging with the southerly stream.

According to the profiler, it is still too warm for snow near sea level..(see image)..but that will change later.... If you look carefully, you can see the northerly winds associated with the convergence zone for the latest sounding (far left).Looking at the latest infrared satellite picture (attached) shows the front that moved though this morning, and an enhanced band off the coast (northern Vancouver Is)...that should move in later today and will rev up the mountain showers and the convergence zone. That is when the real action should occur. You see that the clouds are whiter there...that means they are higher and more active. So get ready, the main action is yet to come...
A reminder..sign up for the NW weather workshop if you are interested (we need to know how many refreshments to get, links at upper right). And next weekend and Monday, I will give public lectures on Bainbridge and Olympia (see links). UW Press likes to keep me busy. After that I will be taking a break.
