Not Quite a Barking Dog…

More like a whimper, or as Steve Pool said on tonight’s weather report on KOMO-4, consider this a "knock on the door" of weather to come. 

From KOMO’s site (5:30 pm update):

"So for tonight, we’re expecting a solid drenching of rain, with a burst of moderately breezy winds toward dawn as the front passes….maybe a few exposed spots like Alki Beach in the 40 mph range"
