Wet, blustery day across the peninsulaFebruary 22nd, 2013 by Matthew Leach
Good morning, everyone! It’s a wet one out there, but the heaviest stuff hasn’t even arrived yet.
The wind has been blowing since early thing morning, with the top wind gust at 28 mph so far. No wind advisories have been posted for the Kitsap Peninsula, but that doesn’t mean we won’t find ourselves getting whipped around by 25-35 mph gusts throughout the day, especially as the front passes through this evening. Expect 1” to 1.5” of rain for most Kitsap locations today.
We’ll calm things down a bit for Saturday and Sunday before another storm system barrels through the region Sunday night and Monday, making for another wet day.
But wait! If you’ve been tempted to give up hope while reading this discussion, there are signs of improvement as we get towards the end of next week. Models have been painting a pretty ridge over the West Coast for late next week into next weekend, which could offer us some warmer temperatures and dry weather. Too soon to say for sure, but at least we have something to look forward to
Stay warm and safe out there!
