For mid-March it was a scorcher yesterday!  Camp Mabry hit a broke a record high by hitting 90 degrees yesterday.  This is our first 90 degree reading of 2013.  Last year, it took us until early April to reach the 90′s.  Is this a sign of what’s to come this Summer?? I guess we’ll have to wait and see…

Here is a list of local high temperatures from yesterday courtesy of the NWS:
