It's been hitting upper nineties F here for the past several days on the flatlands of Colo (but not 8 days). By tomorrow, high of only 71 forecast and upper 50's for Sat with rain before a return to the 80's next week. Certainly above normal recently. I haven't looked at weather maps but would guess we are far enough east to be on the edge of the super warm bubble of air.
Eventually I probably will ask through my network; but I expect a less than interesting response so not exactly a top priority question. Copper is a bit better managed now (last few years), but still can be managed goofily at times and on certain topics.Did anyone try asking Copper?
