It's going to be a scorcher!
At 8:00 AM, temperatures in the center of the state are already nearing the mid-80's. The East Bay exurbs (Antioch, Fairfield, etc.) are forecast to be in the 106-108 range for their highs today.
Even closer to the coast it will be flaming. Guerneville is looking for 102 degrees, as is Glen Ellen.
The heat is more to the north than the south: the San Mateo coastline won't be so bad, as Half Moon Bay expects an 84 degree max, and San Gregorio only 82 degrees. But Santa Cruz is forecast to hit 95!
Closer to home, it will hit 86 at my house, which is very rare (we see about one 90 degree day a year).
And we're not done: the forecast for Chico is to hit 104 degrees today, but they're looking at an astonishing 113 degree forecast for Tuesday!
I hope the weather is beautiful where you are. For us, we're going to take the dog for her walk as early as possible, and plan to be out on our shady, breezy front porch in the heat of the afternoon.
