Fall arrived officially at 1:44 p.m. Sunday, and it's clear our warm summer days are done. Rain and gusty winds moved through.

A gust of 36 mph was recorded at Boeing Field; 44 mph at Port Townsend, 46 mph at Hoquiam and 62 at Hurricane Ridge.

No damage or power outages were reported.

It was wet and breezy for the Seahawks game, but no lightning threatened. Last week the game was delayed for an hour when a thunder storm rolled through.

Between 1 to 2 inches of rain are possible along the coast and in the mountains with amounts of less than an inch elsewhere.

Mountain snow levels by Sunday night will range between 5000 and 6000 feet, so people in the mountains should be prepared for a sudden change in the weather.

The National Weather Service said large swells will affect the coastal beaches of Western Washington from late Sunday though Monday evening. The waves will create dangerous surf conditions, and can produce rip currents and localized beach erosion

Steady rain should change to showers Monday and Tuesday, with highs mostly in the upper 50's to low 60's with a chance of a few thunderstorms on Tuesday. Showers should decrease with some clearing mid-day Wednesday through early Friday.
