In the needle of the storm


Clouds billow behind the Space Needle on Tuesday as a squall blows in over Elliott Bay, bringing rain and thunderstorms to the Seattle area. Nearly 5,000 West Seattle homes and businesses lost power Tuesday as dozens of lightning strikes were reported. The storm moved quickly from the southwest across Puget Sound, weakening as it went, said Josh Smith, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Seattle. Storms like this can be common at this time of year, Smith said. Wednesday's forecast is for highs in the low 70s, with showers likely.
