93 Degrees on the First Day of Fall? What’s Next?!


Happy Fall!

Wowza! We did it folks…we SMASHED the old Bremerton record of 80 degrees set in 1970 (that’s a pretty wimpy number, actually. Only 80 degrees?) with a daytime high of 93 degrees today!

If you saw my video forecast yesterday, I predicted a high of 87 and didn’t think Bremerton would scoot past 90 today. I’m actually amazed it got as warm as it did considering where we’re at seasonally: it’s the first day of fall!

Tomorrow looks about 10 degrees cooler, though it will still be about 10-15 degrees above normal (try to wrap your mind around that!) with continued sunny skies. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s.

Thursday and Friday look much cooler with highs dipping into the upper 60s and low 70s which is quite seasonable for this time of year.

We climb the temperature ladder a bit over the weekend with highs reaching the low to mid 70s but models are converging on the idea of our very first true taste of fall next week with what weather geeks term a “clipper” system which is basically a push of much colder air from our north which could dive temperatures several degrees below normal for quite some time.

Nothing is set in stone, but if you’re anything like me, you’re crossing your fingers so we can get some crisp, fall weather at our doorsteps! Go away, summer! 😉

Have a great evening,
