20 Days and 86 Degrees Warmer


Today highs rose to 71 degrees! Tying the record set back in 1986 and the first time we’ve made it to the 70s since November 19th!

That puts us at 86 degrees warmer than it was on February 17th. That’s a big change in temperatures in a short span! Keep in mind, over the course of an entire year some places never even saw a range of temperatures that wide.
