Pictures I took Thursday afternoon in French Valley. The first was taken from an empty street in an abandoned housing development project; the second was about a block away looking east toward the San Jacinto mountains.

Last night/this morning was probably a bit cooler than it normally would have been had this heat wave occurred a few weeks ago. The longer nights are starting to have an effect on low temperatures.

Yes, it was nice and cool, and we will soon be coming to that time where there is 12 hours of daylight, which actually happens about 3-4 days AFTER the Autumnal Equinox. Hopefully the offshore winds will finally get rid of the humidity. That all depends on how far out the marine layer is pushed.

Sunset is now earlier than it was the 1st day of spring and by next week it will be earlier than when we started Daylight Saving Time, way back in March.

It is baking out here right now, and in Irvine it feels more like 101 F than the 86-93 F range that is being shown in observations. Montgomery Field was showing 101 F at while at the same time Lindbergh Field was showing 77 F.

Dewpoints still in the low 60s within 10 miles of the coast, but could come crashing down any minute.

Oh my god, 108F at Camp Pendleton?? http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mesowest/getobext....KNFG&num=48

Also, update from the NWS: "Downtown Los Angeles official weather observing site hit 100 at 1229 PDT today, beating the previous record of 99 set in 1884! Prior to today, this was the only day in September that had a record high temperature of less than 100 degrees"

Also Montgomery Field in San Diego is at 104F and the Miramar station at 108F! Wow.

Wow - not often that happens. Even here in the Temecula Valley, temperatures right now are only in the low 100s compared to near 110F in some coastal areas.

It also looks like areas south of LA (long beach onwards) are significantly warmer - the ~110F readings so close to the ocean are crazy. If more offshore flow were to kick into the LA coastal plain temps would skyrocket, but that doesnt seem to be happening right now. Also the Downtown LA station seems to have gone offline in the middle of a record-breaking heatwave once again rolleyes.gif

At least the monsoonal moisture is gone, but dewpoints are still pretty high near the coast.

That's one drawback for atleast the LBC...During winter time our area just gets pummeled by storms. (A good thing), However during the summertime, Long Beach is much like Anaheim, When there is a good heatwave, Long Beach BAKES. Today was no exception as temperatures soared well into the 100's here and tomorrow may be even hotter. I'd wager closer to 110, Which I hope I'm wrong.

When it's 105F outside, In my mind, I don't think it makes a bit of difference if there's high humidity or not....Your going to be soaked if your out in either anyway. Granted I do think it makes a difference when we're not talking extreme heat.

Just got to get through 1 more day of it. If the forecast holds, were looking at a good 20 degree drop from Saturday to Sunday.....But even then, It's still going to be near 90 the rest of the week onwards into next weekend before finally cooling off.

Looking ahead in the long range, Models have been very consistent with bringing dramatically cooler temps to the area and showing no signs of even moderate heat...After another week, Temps look to be in the low to mid 70s for the most part. But like anything in weather, A lot can change, Although the models have been showing this cooling for a good week and a half now.

NWS Forecast Discussion, CPC and long-term outlooks show high heat Saturday before onshore flow cools things down (relatively) for a couple days, before high pressure rebuilds again next week with widepspread above normal temperatures across Southern California.

So far in Temecula, every single day this month has had an average temperature above normal. Yesterday (Friday) was an astonishing thirteen full degrees above normal. 36 out of the past 41 days featured above normal temps as well here. This is the longest warmer-than-normal period this area has experienced since the extraordinarily warm September-November 2008 period.

It's getting crazy out there! 88-89F at the beach right now in Santa Monica and Venice, 90F at the airport. Good thing I'm coming back on Monday and don't have to feel the heat laugh.gif

Fall is here. No more monsoonal moisture. Remember that the coast typically gets its highest temperatures of the year in September and October. Just remember 2 years ago. Beaches were freezing and foggy all summer long, then one week into fall, a heat wave brings temperatures in the 100s at the coast. Downtown L.A. baked at an all-time record of 113 after the coolest summer in 75 years. Then San Diego hit a ridiculous 100 in early November after highs averaged less than 70 degrees in July.

It only feels like 111F though, not bad! laugh.gif

Also, temperatures at the beach peaked at a scorching 91F, while inland Santa Monica reached about 94F. The sea breeze has kicked in and cooled it down a few degrees, although LAX is still sitting at 96F.

In stark contrast, I had a pleasant low of 73F this morning which, according to my records, tied 3 other days for the 2nd coolest low since Jul. 1. And yesterday's high of 106F was actually cooler than quite a few locations around LA/OC.

Sure beats those 18 consecutive days in August with lows above 80F and heat indices in the upper 110s! biggrin.gif

San Diego Lindergh has reached 101 F now. That's the hottest I've ever seen it there.

The 158 F in National City was a joke from a time when the thermometer was messed up, however.
