BOK BOK BOK is HOT! HOT! HOT!

A sure sign the heat wave is on its way, Brookings, Oregon, which is on the southern Oregon Coast, is already at 100 degrees as of 3 p.m. Thursday.

They hit 87 yesterday, and only had an overnight low this morning of 76 degrees -- 30 degrees warmer than Tuesday night.

(Thanks to Mark Albright at the UW for pointing this out.)

Brookings tends to be the hot spot of the Oregon coast. I'll bet it's due to some downslope heating off mountains to their east.

P.S. As for the headline, Brookings' three-letter weather ID code is 'BOK'
