One brief shining moment
Or at least, an awfully damned hot one, and one which proves the old saying "Garbage in, garbage out."
I wake up to the droning automated voice of the National Weather Service's VHF radio station (162.40 MHz), and this morning it was duly recapping yesterday's statistics: low 25, high 109.
One hundred and nine?
Trust me, it didn't feel like that when I was walking from the Civic Center to the Sheridan-Walker parking garage. But somehow this bogus number (the high was more like forty-nine) got into the database. (Here's a screen shot of the local NWS data page, before they get around to fixing it.)
Normal high for this date is 52 degrees.
