Eureka Breaks 87-Year-Old Temperature Record Before 10 a.m.
OK, it’s two days before Thanksgiving, and Eureka hit 72 degrees before 10 a.m. That’s weird, right?
Yeah, it’s weird. In fact, that’s the warmest temperature ever recorded on a Nov. 21 in Eureka.
The good folks at the National Weather Service’s Eureka office took to Twitter to drop some science by way of explanation:
Why is it so warm outside along the coast? Winds are blowing out of the SE-S at 15 mph or more, and the air coming down the hills & mountains warms as it reaches the coastal plain. Eureka has reached 72° so far, which breaks the old record of 70° last set in 1930. #cawx pic.twitter.com/ICeBReGaPu— NWS Eureka (@NWSEureka) November 21, 2017
