Currently in Seattle — November 7, 2023: Light morning showers
Plus, hurricane season is effectively over.
The weather, currently.
Showers, mostly in the morning
We’re in for another rainy day, but it’s going to be a light rain. A misty morning rain. A dewy, damp day with a light breeze and a high of 53. Most of our showers will be before 11, so it might not be a terrible day for a walking or bike commute.
Meanwhile, in the mountains, Snoqualmie and Stevens are mostly seeing rain, but higher elevations are getting dusted with snow. Winter is coming, and honestly, I’m here for it.
What you need to know, currently.
For the first time since August 13, there are no looming hurricane threats in either the Atlantic or the eastern Pacific Oceans. We can declare that this year’s hurricane season is effectively over.
With El Niño in effect and global ocean temperatures at the warmest ever measured, the 2023 hurricane season was busier than usual.
According to data from Colorado State University, Atlantic tropical cyclone activity was 24% above normal, and East Pacific activity was 25% above normal.
Some of the most notable storms: Hurricane Dora was a long-lasting hurricane that trekked much of the way across the Pacific Ocean, fanning winds on Hawaii that rapidly spread wildfires on Maui. Hurricane Hilary made a rare landfall in Southern California. And Hurricane Otis became the strongest landfall in Pacific history in Acapulco, Mexico.
