Welcome to this last day of September. Rain showers will be on the menu, with much cooler temperatures. Light snow was predicted for the higher ski areas in the Cascades overnight. Things will dry out later Wednesday as a ridge of high pressure moves overhead. The coolest morning if we stay clear all night will be Thursday, with lows maybe down to 40 degrees or lower in many county locations. Fall-ish weather, for sure.

Well, did you like the rain? I heard no complaints from anyone. And if there were, nothing we could do about it anyway. Rainfall amounts varied widely with 2 inches at some coastal locations and one-half to an inch locally. My rainfall for the month as of 5 p.m. Wednesday was 53-hundredths of an inch. I missed some of the heavier downpours late Tuesday.
