Gotta love this, with all the hullabaloo over a possible new world temperature record in Death Valley, a logging town in Washington has pre-empted them.
Hilariously, the reading of 139 degrees F is listed as “suspect” as it should be, but at 133 degrees F in the next reading (just under the Death Valley all time record of 134F) it is listed as “OK”.
See the screencap:

Obviously it is an equipment malfunction. I wonder how many other weather stations will go on the fritz in our upcoming heat wave.
