**WEATHER ALERT: Bremerton Hits 104 and More Extreme Heat to Come

July 29th, 2009 by Matthew Leach




We did it! I mean, in this heat we might as well. Bremerton made it to the highest temperature ever recorded: 104 degrees, and right at the last minute. At 5:15 PM the temperature spiked from 102 to 104!!! I still wish it got to 103 so I could say my forecast was spot on! But I will say, my forecast was by far the riskiest for the Kitsap area. The National Weather Service was quite hesitant to put triple digits for our area but the models were screaming anything from 100 to 103. It’s moments like these where I’m glad I went with my gut. Seattle got to 103, also the hottest day ever recorded for that location by 3 degrees.

Tomorrow will be similarly hot with highs in the upper 90s to low 100s, so while slightly cooler, it will be another very hot day. Lows will be near 70.

Friday we cool in a more dramatic fashion—if highs between 88-92 is dramatic. We’ll also see more high clouds.

Temperatures rise back into the 90s for the weekend before cooler, yet still above normal weather continues through mid week next week (meaning highs largely in the 80s).

There are (finally!) signs of change in the long range with more of a dramatic marine push possible by next Thursday. I don’t know for sure about that yet, but it looks possible as several model runs have been advertising it.

Sorry I’m not able to write a whole lot this evening, but tomorrow I’ll go into more detail about why this heatwave is so impressive and why it will go in the record books as the hottest ever. Weather geeks across the area (including me!) are so proud today!

Have a great evening!
