Wettest day in Seattle history, 2nd wettest day in Sea-tac history

Yesterday, December 3, 2007 was the 1st wettest day on record (running 24-hour totals) in the city of Seattle and 2nd wettest on record at Sea-tac airport. The pattern that set this up was the so called "Pineapple Express" where the jet stream was pointed from near Hawaii straight into western Washington providing plenty of unobscured moisture. Further, there was a lot of melting snow from a system on Saturday that gave 1-4 inches of snow in the Seattle metro to several feet in the mountains.

Be careful when reading articles from the media, as they are mixing and confusing 24-hour totals (best measurement of "storm" events) with calendar day totals (inaccurate representation of a "storm" event).

Here are some peak 24-hour precip amounts ending Monday evening 3 Dec 2007:
Bremerton, 10.78 inches
Sand Point NWS: 5.07 inches (*** All time 24-hour rainfall record ***)
115th and Greenwood: 4.65 inches (2100 PST 3 Dec 2007)
Lake Forest Park, 4.44 inches (2100 PST 3 Dec 2007)
Pacific Science Center, 4.40 inches (2100 PST 3 Dec 2007)
Capitol Hill, 4.39 inches (2100 PST 3 Dec 2007)
UW, Atmospheric Sciences U of WA: 4.37 inches (2200 PST 3 Dec 2007)
Boeing Field, 4.33 inches (2200 PST 3 Dec 2007)
Seatac, 4.11 inches (***2nd wettest 24-hour period on record; record = 5.01 inches Oct 20, 2003***)
Sequim, 0.28 inches (The Olympic Mountain rain shadow really works!)

Here are some peak wind gusts:
Lincoln City, OR: 108 knots (125 mph)
Cape Blanco OR: 95 knots (109 mph)
Cape Arago OR: 78 knots (90 mph)
Clallam Bay: 78 knots (90 mph)
Newport OR: 71 knots (85 mph)
Destruction Island WA: 81 knots (93 mph)
Sekiu, WA: 81 knots (93 mph)
Tatoosh Island WA: 75 knots (86 mph)
Cannon Beach, OR: 69 knots (80 mph)
Bellingham, WA: 63 knots (73 mph)
Aberdeen, WA: 54 knots (62 mph)
Long Beach, WA: 52 knots (60 mph)

I think that what you posted was actually very logical.
But, think about this, suppose you wrote a catchier post
title? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added something that grabbed folk's attention?

I mean "Wettest day in Seattle history, 2nd wettest day in Sea-tac history" is kinda boring.
You might peek at Yahoo's front page and watch how they write news headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers excited about everything've got to
say. Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than
just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.

However think about if you added some great images or video clips to
give your posts more, "pop"! Your content
is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could definitely be one of the
very best in its field. Awesome blog!
