Asanta’s description of the temperatures in her area is also right on, plus about two degrees across the board, for the L.A. area 400 miles south of Asanta.  The Pacific ocean does wonderful things for our weather.  smile

Yeah, AZ at that temp feels different, even cooler, due to lack of humidity.  It’s not quite the same and I’m considering moving there.

That weather is going to be on the east coast by the end of this week, thanks a lot Missouri. wink  It’s actually very comfortable here in MD - about 64 degrees right this moment, and low humidity; that’s uncommon.

It’s slipping away though.

64 is cold for this time of year, at least around here.

Our summer humidity usually ranges from a comfy 20-45%, 20% in the summer is kind of scary because of the fire danger. We may have one muggy day every 10-15 years…or so. The lower humidity makes a big difference in comfort.

Yes, AZ has a lot of problems with wild fires also.

I live near State College, Pa, the home of Accuweather.  I’ve known a few people who have worked there, (the owner is said to be a real S.O.B.).  They tell me that basically all the commercial forecasters do is take government data, dress it up, i. e. sensationalize it, add advertising and then take something they got for free and sell it.  Why not go right to the source, http://forecast.weather.gov/, you’re already paying for it and they don’t sensationalize the weather or subject you to commercials.  You can get very specific forecasts and weather warnings. 

A note, Joel Myers tried to get a bill passed that would restrict the government to only giving data to commercial outlets.  Citizens would have been forced to watch advertising to get access to information they already paid for with taxes.  Hurray for Capitalism… or, might that be corporate welfare?

That’s very interesting. And it fits exactly with weather.com too. I have a little conspiracy theory that outlets like weather.com sensationalize weather because it’s the perfect way to get website traffic. And that translates to dollars.  I can’t tell ya how many times weather.com says “big big storm coming…stay tuned or visit.. .com” only to have it be a tiny little sprinkle or nothing at all.
