Weekly Entertainment: Knowledge BowlMarch 16th, 2009 by Matthew Leach
At Central Kitsap High School (actually at many high schools nationwide) there’s a club called “Knowledge Bowl” where typically the smartest kids in school form teams and battle in a Jeopardy style competition. The video will explain itself, but last year for one of my weather broadcasts I decided to try my hand at the Knowledge Bowl competition and quickly discovered it wasn’t quite my thing…
And here’s a fun fact: I have never been back…I wanted to leave on a good note
Now on to the forecast which has a bit of sloppy snow in it. The radar has been acting up today causing for periods of heavy rain, wet snow (yes, I saw a bit of wet snow this morning), breezy coniditons and sunny breaks. Tonight will feature the same variability: breezy, mostly cloudy and chilly. Note that heavier showers can momentarily bring the snow level down, so if you see snowflakes flying around tonight don’t be surprised! In fact, the higher elevations might even manage a bit of slushy accumulation. Lows will be in the 30s.
Tomorrow will be another brilliant spring day: clouds, sunbreaks, rain showers potentially mixing with hail or snow and breezy coniditons. Highs will be cooler than normal in the mid to upper 40s. Don’t you just love spring? That was a serious question, actually. I tend to love spring days because there’s normally not too much of the same thing!
More of a cloudy and rainy pattern returns for Wednesday through Friday (Friday is the first day of spring, by the way. Spring begins at 4:44 AM Friday morning) before another chilly storm moves in over the weekend, dropping snow levels dangerously low accompanied by several showers. Yes, we could indeed see some more wet snow showers. I won’t even go into snow accumulation possibilities yet…
Though spring begins Friday, it won’t feel or look like it!
Have a great evening!
