VIDEO: Lightning and rumbles of thunder in BremertonJuly 9th, 2012 by Matthew Leach
It’s times like this where I am very grateful for local weather spotters I didn’t have a functioning camera early this morning to capture the Kitsap spectacle that took us all by surprise, but luckily blog reader Shawn Hollis of Bremerton was able to capture some footage. Click on the link below to see some shots of the lightning:
Thanks, Shawn! And, much to my disappointment, the storms are over for now. Thank you to all the commenters around Kitsap from Port Orchard, Bremerton, Silverdale, Poulsbo, and Suquamish. As we all know, the weather is different everywhere you go. Most of us in Silverdale remained completely dry while residents in Poulsbo and Suquamish experienced pea-sized hail, gusts of wind and heavy downpours.
Keep your eyes on the skies and e-mail any cool weather pics you have to: firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be sure to share.
As for your 7 day forecast, expect more in the way of morning clouds over the next couple of days, although Wednesday through Friday looks gorgeous with morning clouds giving way to warm afternoon sun. Highs will range from the mid 70s to low 80s.
Then there’s the weekend. Confidence isn’t as great as it should be, but as of now it looks sunny, warm and…well, summer-like! So in the meantime, enjoy the calm weather, because living on the Kitsap Peninsula you never know what you’re going to get 😉
