My name is Matthew Leach and along with my responsibilities at the Kitsap Sun, I am also currently working for KOMO News in Seattle as a weather intern. Weather is a huge passion of mine, and even though wrong forecasts make me want to take a sick day or wear some sort of disguise in public, I continue to study and learn more about the various micro-climates within this beautiful state, more particularly in Kitsap County.
Weather forecasters here in Washington State usually focus on predicting the weather for the main Seattle area, and there isn’t enough attention paid to the little micro-climates around the state. That is where I come in…
You’ve probably heard the Kitsap Peninsula and/or Hood Canal mentioned quite frequently in the winter seasons on the local radio, internet sites, or news programs. That is simply because Kitsap loves to create its own type of weather, often blind-sighting meteorologists across the region.
I have decided to take on the challenge of forecasting Kitsap’s unique and sometimes pain in the neck weather and I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I will!
