Week 16: Cardinals vs Seahawks Gameday Weather

NFC West AND NFC Champs?

ShowersPerhaps! Both can happen today with a win by Seattle! But first, they must battle the elements that we typically see in Seattle: WET. We will not see much in the way of heavy rain, or even light rain. In fact, we are looking clear of any moisture up in the atmosphere for the game. However, we will probably see moisture in the form of mist which will not show up on live radar. With that said, there is a system heading our way and showers are just now showing up south of Vancouver Island; I believe Seattle will be in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains.

 

Temps for the game will be slightly warmer than what we are normally accustomed to I expect to see around 49 degrees with temps already at 47 degrees at time of this post (8am Sunday).  Winds will be from the south southwest but will be light: expect to see about 5-10mph winds.

 

So, dress for a win, stay warm and dry and enjoy the game!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Week 13: Saints vs Seahawks Gameday Weather MNF

Monday Night Football in Seattle!

cold  Are you all ready for some football? Monday night football in the Great Pacific Northwest?! I am! Next question, if you are heading to the game, are you layering up? You might want to consider it as temperatures will be around 30 degrees at some point during the game. Vague? Kinda. The problem is, the arctic cold air is taking its sweet time filtering into our area, and with that, temps are staying at their high of 43 degrees; most likely stay there for the start of the game. However, (comma dramatic pause) the wind direction just north of the border, where the Fraser Valley Outflow is located, are now coming from the NNE; a strong indication that that arctic air mass is now starting to filter into the area. How fast or slow is the million dollar question.  I am holding onto the thought that temps will drop fairly dramatically as that arctic air filters into the Seattle area, thus the 30 degree prediction.

 

What about snow? Doubtful! However, (comma dramatic pause) there certainly are scattered showers around the Puget Sound area… and it is not out of the realm of possibilities to have one of these scattered showers travel over Seattle and Clink. If that happens, we COULD see 0.5 to 2 inches depending on how heavy the showers are.

 

This is a fairly vague forecast, and for that I do apologize, but there is a lot of uncertainty with the forecast, even from now (3pm) to end of the game. A lot of ‘nowcasting’ will be in order so please check back.

 

Meanwhile, GO HAWKS!
