From Nick Perry in the Seattle Times:
“The summer switch is about to be flicked but not until after the long weekend.
We Northwesterners are prone to forget, says University of Washington meteorologist Cliff Mass. When it comes to the weather around here, June is reliably bad. July and August? Reliably great.
By next week, all that grumbling about the rain and the clouds and the cool will likely have given way to moaning about the heat. Yes, that’s right, it’s going to be hot. A Northwest kind of hot mid-80s, sunny, the grass starting to brown. The annual flick of the switch.”
