Did We Break Dec. 1 Temp Record? Depends Upon Which Thermometer
According to the National Weather Service (NOAA National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration) from the Pasco Airport, we broke the record.
TRI-CITIES DEC. 1ST TEMP RECORD WAS 66 DEGREES
According to multiple weather sources, in 1941 the Tri-Cities recorded 66 degrees on December 1st.
If you look at the National Weather Service report as of 1:01 PM from the Pasco Airport, it shows 70. Many of you probably see 70 on your phones.
But in order to break a record, the temp has to be recorded via an officially recognized source, such as a verified weather reporter.
But since the record was 66, and the Pasco Airport is showing 70, we probably did. A strong cold front is going to push the warmer Pacific air back down to CA and Nevada this weekend, bringing more December-like temps our way.
We were about ready to break out the shorts again...
