Re: I've become very concerned about the weather...
Having been born and raised in this area.....yeah it is a bit cloudy at times, with no rain or very little rain I might add. Seattle proper gets 10-15" LES rain a year then part of the islands in Hawaii! ave is about 36", which is also 10" less than Miami gets from may 1 to Oct1! or anywhere else east of the mississippi mind you. In those 10 months, seattle is one of the wettest west of the mississippi at 10". ave west of is around 4-8".
We also get a lot of sunny days with north winds in the summer, or not much more than 5-10 knots. Altho if you can figure out how to deal with the tides and currents we have. you can probably sail and deal with them issues anywhere!
Ave temps in aug are 80F if you are lucky!70-80F is typical high. It did not hit above 90 one summer for IIRC 5 yrs not too far back. Quite comfortable actually.
Today, a bit cloudy, with some sun breaks, windy in the 10-15 range....about 50-55F out.....kinda nice actual. would be a great day for a sail!
