Forecast: More sun, still unsettled. Friday and Saturday look a little more promising as high pressure moves into the area. It's not an especially strong high pressure and may weaken as we towards Sunday for the chance of a few more showers later in the weekend.
Weather Question of the Week: Are there ever tornadoes in Washington?
Answer: Yes, in fact several tornadoes and funnel clouds (tornadoes that don't touch down) were reported last week. They are rare, with only one or two reported every year, and are usually weak. The most destructive and deadly tornado in this state's history occurred on the afternoon of April 5, 1972, in Vancouver. That twister created a nine-mile path of destruction, injured 300, and resulted in six deaths.
