Strib: 90 (mid-day update)
*On the 6 p.m. forecast, WCCO's Chris Shaffer chose to show the forecast temperatures estimated by "one of the models." The model, presumably the one that showed the hottest temperatures, depicted a temperature of 94 for the Twin Cities, but, Shaffer added, "I don't think it'll get that warm." Our question is simply this: Why show a model with a temperature that's a full five degrees greater than what you are forecasting? WCCO has done a similar thing with snowfall forecasts in the winter. It seemed irresponsible then and it seems irresponsible now.
