We’re calling it. The Great 2013 Humboldt Heatwave is official. 

Coastal Humboldt dwellers were treated to a second record setting day of what the rest of the nation calls summer. The U.S. National Weather Service reports that the temperature in Eureka reached a staggering (‘round these parts) 73°, edging out the previous record of 71° set way back in aught three of this young century.

Too hot for ya? Never fear, the NWS is predicting tomorrow to be five degrees cooler. But then, they were a bit off today, weren’t they?
