4.20.13 Late Afternoon Evening Cloudy Time Lapse; Queen Anne, Seattle WA

Posted on

Nothing particularly distinguished about this time lapse, but I do note for a second time right at sunset the prevailing winds aloft (as seen in cloud movement) go absolutely haywire. The first half of this video has the weather streaming in from the SSW steady as she goes, then right when the lights go out there’s turbulence and what looks like a switch to an offshore flow. My n of 2 is a hoot, but it’s not something I’d necessarily have identified as a pattern before now without time lapse. It’s easily the most suitably dynamic view available without leaving the house.

Any old-time Seattlites with a weather-watching habit like mine,  knowledgable sailors, or roving meteorologists with an answer, an observation, or an idea chime in in comments.

    We Seattleites love to ponder the weather.

      It took me six years of living here before I even began to figure out the weather up here. I love time lapse photos and I love the sunset so I’m clearly going to take more of these to expand my n, but had hoped some wandering climatologist might have an answer for us. One of these days maybe…

        I was born here and I can’t figure out the weather. Enjoy, don’t think too hard!
