On an evening as hot as this, it seems odd to have a misty-looking Hood Canal. Dr. Dale Ireland submitted this photo taken this evening from his home, which looks across the canal to the Olympic Mountains. He says the layer of haze possibly resulted from cold air flowing down the Dosewallips River valley. A thunderstorm was under way in the mountains.
Bremerton National Airport reached an all-time temperature record today, when the thermometer topped out at 104 degrees. This was three degrees hotter than the previous all-time high for Bremerton — 101 degrees on Aug. 10, 1981. Read the story prepared by reporter Mandy Simpson for tomorrow’s Kitsap Sun.
