As I watch the national weather forecast on TV this morning they are saying today will be over 100 degrees in most of the country. Here in the northwest we are enjoying low humidity with temperatures in the 70s and 80s … maybe up to the low 90s later in the week. This is definitely the place to be THIS summer, however as a “long-in-the-tooth” native, I can speak with authority stating it is not always this way. Pacific Northwest weather is unpredictable at best. An ongoing local comment in this area of the state says the weather people look out the window just before the broadcast in order to know what is happening because it is nearly impossible to say otherwise. Of course, that is a very old joke … probably not valid any longer with all the new technology.
