Microsoft could not have engineered better Labor Day weather. Perfect 10’s abound in the Seattle area including Redmond, Washington home of Microsoft. Nearer to Puget Sound, temperatures will be slightly cooler so downtown Seattle/Tacoma will be 9’s instead of 10, but from Snohomish south to Renton and Spanaway a line of perfect 10’s will appear.
Overall for Labor Day, New Hampshire will have the highest mean with a beautiful 8.9. In fact, four out the top five states will be in New England tomorrow.
A few other perfect’s include: Ponemah, Minnesota…Belknap, Montana…Kellog, Idaho…Craigmont, Idaho…Multnomah Falls, Oregon…Yacolt, Washington, and my wife’s home town of Afton, Wyoming.
Worst Labor Day you ask? Obviously it’s in Alaska as the entire state is rapidly moving into fall. King Salmon’s forecast is probably the worst with rain, highs in the 50s, and wind gusts to 45 mph.
I know there will be a lot of people recreating tomorrow, so I thought I would add best National Park to the discussion today. Crater Lake National Park will be the best with a mean of 9.1. Worst? Kings Mountain National Military Park in South Carolina with a mean of 4.0. Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the U.S. and the second deepest in North America with a maximum depth of 1,949 feet.
The best beach weather for the holiday will be Rio Del Mar Beach in California which scores a perfect 10. Many beaches score the low of PWI 5 and these will be mainly in the Mid-Atlantic from Delaware to Virginia.
