Snow, Hail, Wind, Oh My!

This has certainly been an eventful weather month so far. We were seeing snowflakes flying earlier last week, record cold low temperatures, highs in the low to mid 60s on Monday and pouring rain/strong winds yesterday (60 mph gusts were reported at the Hood Canal bridge!).

Oh, and let’s not forget the hail! A Forecasting Kitsap reader, Steve from the Issaquah Highlands, e-mailed me this photo:

Now choose your favorite weather event from those listed above. Did you pick “sunny and temperatures in the low to mid 60s”? Because if you did, that’s what we have next on the menu as far as dramatic weather goes. And wouldn’t you know it…Saturday is the first official day of spring! How appropriate!

Naturally, the clouds and showers come back later in the weekend through most of next week, so get out and do something productive this weekend!
