True, it’s the middle of May and I’m sweating in my house. Yes, yesterday was supposed to be the hotter of the days this weekend. Indeed, the forecast screwed the pooch again, seeing as it’s 94 degrees in Redmond right now, and it was only 80-something yesterday; tomorrow is supposed to top out at 70. Of course, this leads to this traditional Seattle-newscast-styled headline this morning: “Coping with the heatwave!”
Obviously, if more than an inch of snow makes for a blizzard then one day of excessive heat will absolutely make headlines as a heatwave. Wonder what a CT or NY run of 14+ days above 90 would be called here – the End Days?
The better question is this a preview of summer or is this summer in it’s entirely?
