In spite of the doppler weather map, consider taking a moment outside tonight to see if you can see any of the Draconid meteors. They are to the North between the Big Dipper's handle and the Little Dipper. They were supposed to be the 7th and the 8th at dusk, but it looks a little bit clearer out tonight than it was on the 7th. Being visible at dusk is not common. Generally shooting stars are always said to be best after midnight. Meteor information source: http://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/earthskys-meteor-shower-guide.
Another October meteor shower is the Orionids is on the 21st before dawn. Although campers often enjoy the Perseids during August, how often is it clear enough to look for meteors in Western Oregon or Washington during the fall and winter.
There are 3 meteor showers scheduled in November: November 4-5 South Taurids, November 11-12 North Taurids and November 16-17 Leonids. If it's not raining, it might be fun to get a glimpse of those.
Then, the grandaddy of them all is supposed to be a comet called Ison which is hopefully becoming visible on November 30th. If you click on Ison, there are some great pictures already emerging for it. Some websites say that it is possible that it could burn up before the end of November, but it still seems like a worthwhile phenomenon to look into.
