A wet September: With only one more day left in the month (“30 days hath September”), Seattle is on track to have the wettest September since 1978. More rain and wind is forecast for today, with some decrease to scattered showers tomorrow, the last day of the month. Expect some form of moisture from the sky for the rest of the week. The weekend has already kept power companies and road crews busy, with more than 20,000 customers without power Saturday evening, and fender benders and flooded streets across the area.
Out in the weather: The Center for Wooden Boats will be finishing up its 14th annual Norm Blanchard Regatta, named for the man responsible for building more than 2,000 boats in 60 years at Blanchard Boat Company on Lake Union. Races begin at 1 p.m. today and are free to watch from the shores of the lake. But bring rain gear.
Staying dry: Probably your best bet is to settle down in front of your TV this morning and watch the Seattle Seahawks, who are playing in Houston, where the forecast is for a high of 82 degrees with a chance of thunderstorms. The Texans are expected to be a tough test for Seattle’s 3-0 NFL team as they, too, have hopes of reaching this year’s Super Bowl. Game time is 10 a.m.
