Oh, sweet Barrow, please bless me with cool thoughts

The heat wave that plagued us for most of July and early August has eased up a bit. However, summer is still with us for a while, and it remains much too warm for my liking.

Because of this, it is time to take one of our infrequent looks at the weather in Barrow, Alaska. Barrow is the northernmost permanent settlement in the United States. Even though we have been scorched this season, the weather there has been more likeable.

For the next three days, the forecast there is: Tuesday -- high temperature of 46 and a low of 40 with partly cloudy skies. Wednesday -- high of 46 and a low of 41 with a 40 percent chance of showers. Thursday -- high of 46 and a low of 43 with a 30 percent chance of showers.

That makes me feel better. Soon, the weather will take a turn for the better here.

And folks in Barrow will wish they lived in Tennessee.
