Happy New Year to everyone! I hope that everyone is ready for 2005 and had a great holiday season!
Is it summer already? It has been unusually warm here in Raleigh for the past week and is expected to reamin this way throughout the 10 day extended forecast. What is unusually warm? How about 75-80 degrees?! Definitely not early January weather…
The National Weather Service says it all:
…RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE RALEIGH NC 420 PM EST TUE JAN 4 2004
… RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE SET AT THE RALEIGH DURHAM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT…
THE HIGH TEMPERATURE AT THE RALEIGH DURHAM INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FOR JANUARY 4TH WAS 76 DEGREES. THIS BREAKS THE OLD RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 75 DEGREES FOR THIS DATE… WHICH WAS RECORDED IN 1950 AND 1997.
To everyone in Raleigh, enjoy!
