(Yes, I know, it’s not even SPRING, yet!)
A couple of weeks ago, it was cold and rainy, as it should be in February. Highs in the 50’s and 60s.
BUT, we do have occasions of warmer weather spurts, followed by cooling off periods, usually culminating in the first 100° temperature around the beginning of May (sometimes a day or two earlier. April?)
I remember a month of so ago, my roommate asking me to turn up the heat a click, as she was ‘freezing’. (The can be difficult to gauge accurately, as our thermostat resembles a Quija board, and she has her own internal thermostatic issues. And my room, most Westerly in the house, gets the most Sun and heat – making it 5-10 degrees warmer in warmer months (and colder in colder months)!
It appears we are beginning an up-tic: 88° Sunday (today), then 90°,92°,93°,92°,93°,95°,94° ! (per Yahoo Weather)
The brain trust on the street (aka the Chicken Littles) have begun proclaiming with it being this hot so early, that we are in for a scorching Summer, as is one may extrapolate the weather that far out! (attention Chicken Littles – most weather readers have enough trouble getting tomorrow’s temp correct! And you can predict 100 years in advance? Yeah. Global Warming. RI-IGHT!)
Like it’s going to be 150° in the shade in July. Silly geese.
Everyone knows it most likely won’t exceed 122°, 123°…
(Hopefully, this won’t happen until July, if ever!)
PHOENIX (CBS5) –
Do you remember the hottest day in Phoenix history?
It was on June 26, 1990, a day not easily forgotten as the mercury hit an all-time high temperature of 122 degrees.
Okay, June then!
