What’s the difference between a Heat Wave in April and one in August?

The one in April only lasts one day and barely breaks room temperature… 🙂
(My Wife said that joke wasn’t funny… tough crowd tough crowd.)

I’ve fixed the forecast as best I can for now. If the frontpage doesn’t look right to you, please notify me as it’s likely something weird with the forecast, but I’ve tested it as much as I can and it doesn’t seem to be affecting things anymore. I’ll try to get it more cleaned up towards the end of the weekend.

Have a great day! Time to do some gardening! Hoping for 19 today!

Chris
