October continues to chug along at a good pace. It sure seems like we went from very pleasant late-summer weather to autumn overnight, doesn’t it? Quite an abrupt change for sure. But I think most everyone is ready for the fall season.And keeping with that fashion, we have more storms heading our way. Nothing on the massive destruction scale, just some typical early-fall weather systems. Much of the energy will stay to our north, but plenty of clouds — and rain or showers — are in the forecast most of the week.Earlier, I was thinking Monday’s weather system would bring lots of wind and rain, especially along the coast, but now it appears it will be much weaker and more a squeaker than a soaker.I was disappointed in the forecast results for last Thursday and Friday. I thought we would see much more clearing and sunshine than we experienced. The clouds, drizzle and showers hung in there. Oh, well, that’s the joys of weather forecasting in the great Northwest. The first week of October was fairly average in Vancouver, at least on the thermometer. We had cooler highs than normal, but warmer lows, due to the impressive cloud cover. And despite the drizzle and light rain we got, the city is officially running about a quarter-inch below average for the first seven days of the month. I would expect we will catch up on that before the month’s end.
