I mean, unless you’re reading this in Alaska.
Many cities in Alaska will have a warmer Memorial Day Weekend than northwest cities like Portland, Seattle, Spokane and Medford.
Fairbanks, Alaska will be incredibly warm and you can see the high temperatures here.
Just for comparison sake: Fairbanks hit 81 degrees on Friday May 27, 2011. Portland hit 57 degrees. That makes Portland 24 degrees colder than its Alaskan neighbor to the north. And Seattle had a high of 58. So that city is running 23 degrees colder than Fairbanks, Alaska.
Blame it on a ridge of high pressure over Alaska bringing warmer and drier air, while cool air and showers stream across the Pacific to Washington and Oregon.
Sad. But true. Too true.
