Last year, I wrote about this:
Via The Bellingham Herald, May. 26, 2011:
Bellingham on track for temperature record – but not the good kind
If temperatures don’t warm up in the next two weeks, Bellingham may beat its record for the longest stretch of days below 70 degrees.
As of Wednesday, May 25, Bellingham had gone 240 consecutive days without reaching 70 degrees, as recorded at Bellingham International Airport.
The record is 254 set in 1955, according to the National Weather Service, which keeps records for Bellingham as far back as 1949. In 1955, it didn’t hit 70 until June 6, said National Weather Service meteorologist Carl Cerniglia.
Sunday tied daily heat record in Bellingham
If Sunday, April 22, felt like a record day of warm weather, that’s because it was.
The thermometer topped out at 71 degrees at the official National Weather Service station at Bellingham International Airport, tying the record for April 22, set in 1982.
That’s a lot warmer than last year, when it hit 57 degrees on that date. Later that week the temperatures dropped enough to threaten snow in the lowlands.
