Taking Advantage of our “Early Spring” Weather!

February 20th, 2010 by Matthew Leach

It felt sooooo good to get outside and bike to, along and from the Clear Creek Trail in Silverdale today! And boy let me tell you…it was packed! I almost ran over 2 children, a puppy, an older couple with walking sticks and a baby in a stroller. Luckily, my quick ninja-like reflexes kicked in and no one was hurt! But to find a reasonable amount of room to bike was tricky.

It was also quite mild with high temperatures soaring near 60 degrees. And wouldn’t you know it—Phil was wrong and my dog was right! Spring has most certainly sprung! Overnight temperatures have grazed freezing, however, which has made for a pretty wide range in temperatures. This is due, in large part, to the sun angle. Our temperatures now are comparable to how it is in October—chilly nights, but mild days.

Even more good news, the mountains are hardly suffering from lack of snow and the Olympics are running just fine. Combine that with the sunny, 60 degree weather down here and we can call it good. This El Nino has been many things (**a huge pain in the butt!**) but it has not been one for causing drought concerns.

The forecast for the rest of the weekend and into early next week remains the same: sunny to mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid to upper 50s with lows in the low to mid 30s. Clouds and several weather systems will override our ridge and bring in periods of rain for midweek onward. Looking at long range projections, the showery and seasonable weather pattern looks to continue.

With that in mind, continue to take advantage of days like this! They’re like little nuggets of gold.

    And if all those people weren’t out in the park today, they were out driving. The traffic was like December 24th this afternoon. Yikes!

    Spring has sprung
    The grass is griz
    I wonder where
    The flowers is.
