The weather in Eureka and Samoa.

It seems that every time I am working Graveyard Shift, my bedroom on the second floor gets way warm here in Samoa in the early evening. From 5-6pm is the best time to visit the Peninsula for decent weather, so it seems. In Eureka lately I have noticed the Umpqua weather temperature gauge at 5th and Hst is most times over 10 degrees warmer than what it actually is. I wonder how many people just driving through town on 101 check that out and think we are in the high 70's and 80's? In reality we have had less days in the 70's than Nome, Alaska this July.

That could just be a local variation, Richard. The thermometer on our back porch usually shows it a bit higher than the weather service shows. In the summer, when the sun is blasting on the walls of the house surrounding the porch it can be waaay higher than the "real" temperature.
