Instead, it’s a longer-term weather trend that shows Oregon and Washington is outpacing the rest of the country in our area of specialty.
This map shows the April-June temperature trend for each state. It’s shows how we compare with 117 years of weather records. See the almost purple color for Oregon & Washington? And the number 1 on top? That means we just had our coldest April-June on record!
Idaho and Montana are also quite cold. Even California is on the cool side.
And of course, most of the rest of the country is baking. That bright red and 117 in Texas? It means the state had its hottest April-June on record. Hottest in 117 years of records.
But we all know how July is turning out–unusually cool.
At least there’s still August.
Maybe then we’ll get some sunshine and have summer weather in places like Portland, Seattle and the rest of the Northwest.
