A giant metal cricket, sunshine, and a dust devil extending into evaporating rain (𝙫𝙞𝙧𝙜𝙖)!
This unusual sight was recorded from the Galleta Meadows Estate in Borrego Springs, California last month. 🌪🏜🦗

November rain stats. Bellingham had the wettest month on record with 14.57" crushing the previous wettest month 11.60" ( Nov. 1990 ).
Seattle 10.26", 5th wettest November & 11th month with 10" plus. It rained 25 days tying 1973, 1963 & 1953 for the most rain days in Nov. #wawx
Seattle's new meteorological fall rain record is impressive in its own right, but pales in comparison to what fell in 90 days over parts of the Olympics & Cascades with more than 50 inches.
In Forks, rain in the past 90 days exceeds what Vegas typically gets in 13 years.
Recent unseasonably warm temps and rain are impacting our ability to open this week. We can’t wait to kick off the season and will share an update on a new target opening day as soon as we can. We can’t wait to see you and get back to what we love most!

Water over roads and into neighborhoods in the town of Allen, near Burlington in Skagit County. It’s about a foot deep in this area so neighbors are parking their car on higher ground and trudging to and from their homes in galoshes.
Here’s a visual of northbound I-5 just south of Nulle Rd. The left lane is open and the right lane will remain closed overnight. Prepare accordingly and fill up your tank if you hit the road and make space for emergency vehicles.
Updated map with lidar from @wadnr showing the source of the floodwater: the Nooksack River. This illustrates how little elevation there is preventing the Nooksack from spilling over its banks at Everson and flooding NE - which is currently happening, again☹️
November has been wet, especially over NW WA. How wet? Bellingham recorded 11.64" through midnight yesterday. That is an all-time record for the month and counting. Quillayute on the north coast had 27.80" through midnight yesterday (2nd wettest November so far). #wawx
