Baker basks in 76-degree weather

By Jayson Jacoby, The Baker City Herald

Tuesday was the sort of day that happens only once a year.

Spring, the genuine article, arrived in Baker County.

Lawnmowers buzzed.

Short-sleeve shirts emerged from hibernation.

Lilac leaves thrust a little farther from their buds.

The temperature topped out at 76 degrees at the airport, making Tuesday the warmest day in more than half a year.

(79 degrees on Sept. 20, 2013.)

Balmy though it was, Tuesday didn't set a new standard for April 8.

The record high for the date is 82 degrees, set in 1996.

But lest you feel shortchanged, temperature-wise, consider this:

The average high temperature for April 8 is 56 degrees.

And the high on that date last year? 48.
