Beauty of An Alaskan Fall

I have never been to Alaska, but I have been to Norway and it was amazing. I imagine Alaska is very similar…at least in climate. Someday I’ll go there and experience the beauty of that area, especially in the fall.

Fellow blog readers and contributors Jason and Colleen Smidt sent me photos of “fall in its full glory” while on vacation in Minto, Alaska and Cook Inlet on the Kenai Peninsula

Aren’t these pictures awesome?! Thanks to Jason and Colleen for providing these pictures. It looks like the weather was spectacular up there!

I can’t say the same about down here as we still have a straggling area of low pressure slowly exiting the area. BUT it will definitely feel like Alaska! I’m sure you noticed the sunbreaks this morning. This will cause some minor instability this afternoon which could set off some late-season thunderstorms/thundershowers. Highs will remain in the 50s (little side note, as of 1:3o PM the high temperature is Bremerton is 54 degrees! That’s cold!)

Tomorrow will be a dry but cool day with plenty of sunbreaks but more clouds, showers and sunbreaks return for the latter part of this week. The good news is we should have a pretty pleasant, pumpkin-patch-like weekend!

Long range models are trending towards a complete 180 next week with sun and mild weather making a comeback. Stay tuned!

Have a great day,

Matthew Leach
