Spokane Reporter Talks to East Coast Colleague About Record Heat

By Kevin Eck 

The Pacific Northwest, an area used to seeing temperatures in the 70s and 80s about now, is experiencing record heat. Spokane, Wa. is expected to hit 112 degrees today.

Jaryd Leady, a reporter for WRDE in Milton, Delaware, asked Spokane reporter Bradley Warren about how he’s handling the unusual temperatures.

Warren, who was born and raised in the area and reports for NBC affiliate KHQ, said he couldn’t remember a time with more than two days of triple digit temperatures “and we’re going into I believe a week,” he told Leady.


He said the area is under a weather authority alert for the next week, which is usually seen during the winter “that’s what we get here is freezing cold temperatures a lot of snow,” he said. “We don’t get a lot of sun.”

“I mean in Washington we are known for our coffee,” Warren told Leady when asked how he’s staying cool. “We are the home of Seattle and we all drink coffee here, so I definitely have had my surplus of iced coffee just in the last couple of days. So you can tell the good people of Delaware that iced coffee is what we are enjoying to stay cool right now.”
