    Heading over the Pass? Winter Arrives... >sigh<

    This is mostly directed at the higher passes:

    SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT
    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SEATTLE WA
    549 AM PDT MON SEP 28 2009

    WEST SLOPES NORTHERN CASCADES AND PASSES-
    WEST SLOPES CENTRAL CASCADES AND PASSES-
    549 AM PDT MON SEP 28 2009

    ...A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO COOLER AND WETTER WEATHER WILL BEGIN
    LATER TODAY AND WILL CONTINUE THROUGH AT LEAST NEXT WEEKEND...

    THE RECENT DRY AND MILD WEATHER PATTERN WILL COME TO AN ABRUPT END
    TONIGHT AS A COLD FRONT IN THE GULF OF ALASKA SWINGS SOUTHEAST
    THROUGH THE AREA.

    WHILE THE FRONT WILL BRING SOME LIGHT RAIN TO MOST AREAS
    TONIGHT...THE BIGGER WEATHER CHANGE WILL BE NOTICED ON TUESDAY.
    TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWLANDS WILL TOP OUT BELOW 60 DEGREES IN MOST
    LOCATIONS...WHILE TEMPERATURES IN THE MOUNTAINS PASSES ONLY PEAK OUT
    AROUND THE 40 DEGREE MARK.


    PRECIPITATION BEHIND THE FRONT TUESDAY AND TUESDAY NIGHT WILL BE
    SHOWERY. WHILE SNOWFALL AMOUNTS IN THE MOUNTAINS WILL NOT BE
    HEAVY...SNOW LEVELS WILL DROP TO AROUND 4000 FEET.

    AFTER A SHORT PERIOD OF COOL AND DRIER CONDITIONS ON WEDNESDAY...A
    SERIES OF FRONTAL SYSTEMS AND YET ANOTHER UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE
    SYSTEM WILL BRING COOL AND DAMP WEATHER TO THE AREA LATER THURSDAY
    THROUGH NEXT WEEKEND.

    BE PREPARED FOR COOL AND DAMP WEATHER OVER THE UPCOMING WEEK IF
    YOU ARE PLANNING OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES. IF YOU PLAN TO HIKE IN THE
    MOUNTAINS OVER THE UPCOMING WEEK...MONITOR WEATHER FORECASTS AND
    BE PREPARED FOR MUCH COOLER AND WET CONDITIONS.

    Bummer!

    It's this time of year that I start yearning to become a snowbird. Maybe I should load up and go stay at my brother's ranch in Nevada this winter!

    Oh well, at least we had durn nice summer....

    C'est la vie!
