LOL Ironically, 2008 is on pace to be a slightly cooler year in a steadily rising temperature trend line. Experts say it's thanks to a La Nina weather variation. While skeptics are already using it as evidence of some kind of cooling trend, it actually illustrates how fast the world is warming.

And locally? Friday and Saturday's storm brought cold air with record low maximum temperatures predicted for Sunday. The record low maximum temperature recorded for Sunday is 45 degrees, set in 1932, according to Dean. Temperatures hovered at 43 degrees Sunday afternoon, during what is usually the warmest time of day.
Dean said the break in clouds between storms is often the coldest time, with no cloud cover to trap in heat. A similar situation is predicted to occur between the second and third storms in this series coming from Alaska. The second storm system will arrive late Sunday with showers lingering today and possibly Tuesday.
While conditions temporarily clear Wednesday, there is the possibility for record-breaking low temperatures in the upper 20s. Dean said the record low for that day is 29 degrees set in 1924. ◼ Two more storms from Alaska predicted to hit the North Coast
