Meteorologists have gotten the message: They messed up.
Before Saturday’s storm, forecasters warned that Puget Sound could be lashed by winds reaching tropical storm levels. After the storm – which wasn’t anywhere near that windy – the mea culpas were falling like a soft Seattle rain.
“Yes, our forecast did not turn out as predicted,” the National Weather Service’s Seattle office said in a Facebook post. “We are not pleased about it either.”
