But, it&#39;s not &quot;normal,&quot; says KPLU weather expert Cliff Mass.</p><blockquote><p>&quot;It&#39;s been drier than normal this month. From April first until now, we are over an inch below normal, in terms of rainfall. We have been warmer than normal this past week,&quot; he says.</p></blockquote><p>That continues through Sunday, with temperatures reaching the lower to mid-60s.</p> Fri, 13 Apr 2012 16:24:30 +0000 Keith Seinfeld 4748 at http://www.kplu.org
