BOISE, Id –The forecast in Boise Thursday calls for a high of 95. That’s two degrees above normal. You hear that a lot from forecasters talking about temperatures, whether they’re above normal, below normal.
Idaho’s new normal temperature has everything to do with the 1970’s.
George Skari “We just came out with new normal that began in 1981 through 2010, we got rid of the ‘70s.”
