Patriot Weather

Someone is playing a prank on the Patriot's weather guy. This is the second time in the past week I've heard him read the weather as pretty much the total opposite of reality. Can't recall his name, but it's whoever gives the weather right before the Hugh Hewitt show.

Today, the temp was about 70 degrees, and the real forecast calls for highs in the high 60's - low 70's for the next few days.

This fellow told us we were on the verge of a great heatwave just after the one of the coolest Augusts ever recorded had ended. Seems he thought it was 90 degrees outside right then, with temps in the upper 80's through the rest of the week.

This exact same absurdly warmer than reality forcast was made early last week. I assumed that one was a paperwork error, but this is twice I've heard the same thing now. And the part that really struck me was that both times he was about 20 degrees off the actual current temperature (70 degrees and 90 degrees are not really all that similar).

I think someone in the wings wants to make him look stupid to take his job. Either that or he's trying to cheer us all up with weather propaganda - "It's super sunny and summery every day at the Patriot!

But seriously, is anyone else catching this?
