Zero For Ninety in 2011
It seems that here in the Pacific Northwest, we are doing all we can to back up Mr. Perry. Portland, Oregon, which usually 13.5 days where the temperature breaks 90, has had exactly ZERO days over 90 this year. In the inland Northwest, Spokane usually has 17 days over 90, and has had only 4 this year.
More local to my place, according to an unscientific pole of locals, the Tri-Cities are in south-east Washington usually sees 15-250 days a year over 100 degrees, and this year, we have yet to break The Century Mark.
But...that's weather, not climate, because the scientists tell us so.
