So this is what it’s like to live in Seattle. An unusually long stretch of cloudy, gloomy weather has many Central Texans longing for some sunshine, something hardly seen at all since the end of January.
Here are entries from the KXAN weather diary for the past 13 days. You will notice no mention of the sun:
January 30 – Mostly cloudy to overcast and cool.
January 31 – Low clouds, fog, mist, scattered rain showers.
February 1 – Early fog, mist and drizzle, remaining overcast to mostly cloudy.
February 2 – Lots of fog, under overcast skies.
February 3 – Morning fog and drizzle.
February 4 – Early fog, mist and drizzle, remaining overcast.
February 5 – Early fog, mist and drizzle, remaining overcast.
February 6 – Morning fog, mist, isolated rain showers, remaining overcast…
February 7 – Morning showers, cloudy with arctic front.
February 8 – Intermittent wintry mix, patchy light rain, sleet, graupel…
February 9- Gloomy and damp with showers, fog.
February 10 – Gloomy and damp with showers, fog,
February 11 – Morning fog, mist, remaining overcast.
Fortunately for those that are in need of some light therapy, this streak of gloomy weather will end Tuesday. The forecast calls for sunny to partly cloudy skies all week. Some days may have more clouds than sun, but a little sunshine is better than none. Even if you love the cloudy weather, we all need Vitamin D!
