Events that start at 7 PM

Tonight on KIRO TV (channel 7) at 7 PM: a show about La Nina and the new coastal radar.

Wednesday night at 7 PM: American Meteorological Society meeting on where the oil in the Gulf went. Location: NOAA Sand Point (7600 Sand Point Way).

Yesterday, the rainshadow was centered over Seattle because the usual SSW winds changed to WSW.

Catch-up post

Friday Earmarks = coastal radar (so vote for Murray)
Saturday Strong winds and big waves, but not in the city (especially the waves). Rain everywhere
Sunday See "Saturday"

A temperature inversion is when it gets warmer the higher up you go. We had one yesterday. They're caused by clear skys during the night, which allows the surface of the earth to cool down.
