Hottest Carlisle Ever? (Check out the forecast!)

Post by MerkurScorpio » Wed Jun 04, 2008 8:55 am

Here's the latest from The Weather Channel:

Friday, June 6: Partly Cloudy, High 96F, Low 71F
Saturday, June 7: Saturday, June 7: Partly Cloudy, High 95F, Low 71F
Sunday, June 8: Isolated T-Storms, High 93F, Low 70F

I don't know about anyone else out there, but this has me seriously rethinking my approach to Carlisle this year. I'm glad I'm driving down tomorrow night!

I may consider leaving my car at the showfield this year and getting a rental to go back and forth. I'm not sure I want to run my Scorpio in traffic at these kind of temps. And despite how late I would get home, I may not leave Carlisle until sundown (or at least until the temps drop to the low-80s).[/b]

Those temps are just a warm day in the Central Valley; maybe that's way I don't see many Scorpios around here.

Enjoy! When I went in early May it was colder and rainy at night.
