PROSSER, Wash.- As we've seen with those recent chillier temperatures, the summer is clearly over and fall has arrived.
In Prosser, experts who monitor weather patterns can look back and see that this summer was one of the hottest in recorded history. July was by far the hottest ever with daily average temps consistently in the 90's according to meteorologists from AgWeatherNet. They have a system of hundreds of weather stations in eastern Washington that collect data.
"Certainly a very unusual summer mainly because of the consistency of the heat whether it was warm at night or in the day, the entire summer was very warm and there really weren't any significant cool periods as we have a times," said Nic Loyd, an AgWeatherNet meteorologist.
The people of AgWeatherNet update their website almost every fifteen minutes with current conditions to inform growers in the region who use that data to properly care for their crops. You can check it out here: http://weather.wsu.edu/awn.php
