It looks like the lead in to the Labor Day Weekend will be sunny and dry, with a chance of a few thunderstorms coming into the region by the end of the holiday. High temperatures will climb slowly into the upper 90s to near 100 degrees on Saturday and Sunday. A few clouds will build up Sunday and Monday afternoons, with a slight chance of then developing into isolated thunderstorms. Scattered to isolated thunderstorms will continue through most of next week.
Yesterday, I mentioned that thermometers can measure to tenths of a degree. Now this begs the next question. “If thermometers can measure to tenths of a degree (or hundredths… thousandths?), why don’t they report the temperatures in more precise terms? For example, the electric company when they bill will charge $ .1187600 for the first 1500 kilowatt-hours use. Or when you go to the store to buy apples the price they charge is like $1.96. When they time an athlete-it is done in hundredths or thousandths. Notice all of these are not rounded, so why would they round the temperature?”
This is a good question, and on the surface, makes a lot of sense. After all, shouldn’t we be more accurate? Tomorrow, I’ll tell you why we don’t.
Your the best Mike. Keep up the good work How about us in the Palomineo Valley ?
