VIDEO FORECAST: Weather Folk Don’t Golf

Here’s another parody of me “trying out” for a spring sport at Central Kitsap High School. You may remember last week I attempted track but didn’t do so well so this week I am trying golf. In reality I’m not a horrible runner, but I am a horrible golfer. Enjoy!

Whew, glad we got that out of the way 🙂 Ignore the weather forecast I give at the end as this video is a couple weeks old. Don’t worry, we don’t have a Pineapple Express headed our way.

So let’s discuss exactly what is heading our way. As pessimistically expected, our “sunbreaks and showers” forecast has turned into “cloudy, breezy, and wet” forecast as several disturbances are pegged to hit our region.

The mountains are going to get pounded with 1-2 feet of snow between this evening and tomorrow afternoon, so travel over the passes will be quite hectic, but the good news is snow levels will remain high enough to keep us in the lowlands just rainy and breezy.

Thursday looks like the only completely dry day with partly sunny skies and highs in the low 50s.

A series of storm systems move through our region from Friday through early next week, but the good (or maybe bad) news is these systems will be quite chilly and wet meaning PLENTY of mountain snow. However in the lowlands, highs look to range in the mid to upper 40s with lows in the mid 30s under cloudy, soggy skies. If models remain consistent with this forecast we could be in for quite the gloomy pattern.

And wouldn’t you know it, the long range models advertise even more cool, wet weather into April, meaning maybe Western Washington won’t exactly be the “happenin’ place” during Spring Break 🙂

Have a great evening! I have to go to a soccer game in Tacoma now…
