Beg to differ. When I was at HyVee, picking up a few goodies from China Express about two hours ago, I saw several high school aged kids dressed in shorts and tops more suitable for 70 degree temps.

I'm told that dressing that way when it's in the 50s shows how tough you are . . .

Yeah, I did some dumb things like, too, when I was their age.

No, not tough, just like the warmth. I was tempted to put on capri's today. It's amazing how warm 50 is in March and how cold it is in September

I believe what granitestater is noting is that we are not hit by the Chinook winds, but are affected by it as the created airmass moves east. That is something that does happen.

Yes, that is correct about the warm air mass created by a chinook. When living in Iowa I used to notice the occasional extreme temperature difference say between Council Bluffs or Sioux City on the western border versus Dubuque on the eastern border during winter days when the chinook had been at work. The difference was so large that I thought it amazing that the temperature range could be so wide within the boundaries of the state.
