A day after gas reaches a metro area average of $4 a gallon, Atlanta sets a record high temperature (98 degrees).
I was talking with a National Weather Service forecaster earlier — it’s how I spend my spare time — and was told that even though temperatures will go down this week, the humidity will rise. So it’ll be cooler, but feel just as hot.
In other words, July has come early.
We can also expect more smog. If more people stay at home — with high gas prices canceling their vacations — more cars will be on the roads locally. So more smog.
Remember when summer was fun?
