It's 75 degrees at the Arcata-Eureka Airport right now. Seventy-freaking-five! That sets a record for April 24, beating out the 68-degree high set exactly 100 years ago, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The record high for all of April is 80 degrees, set on April 9, 1989. Meanwhile, Bridgeville hit 85 degrees at 1 this afternoon; Fortuna reached 78 degrees at 1:46 p.m.; and even Crescent City hit a toasty 72 degrees.
Global warming may spell doom for humanity, but dang if it ain't nice today!
