We’ve reached that (coveted? blessed? cursed?) milestone of 90º in September…


First of all, sorry for the black text on the light blue background. Is it bothering all of you as much as it’s bothering me? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to change it to white.

ANYWAY, we did it. Since 2:30 pm we’ve been sitting at a solid 90º. It’s about 3:30 pm right now and I’m confident we’ll be able to squeeze out a few more degrees before this early September heat spell winds down. This means our record high temperature of 86º set back in 2011 is…well, a thing of history.

We still have a couple more days of unseasonable warmth as offshore winds and a late-season thermal trough slowly fizzle away. Thursday and Friday both look mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 80s. For those just itching for more fall-like weather, true relief arrives by the weekend with highs settling down into the low to mid 70s.

Have a great day!
