Recorded the warmest day of the year today at 101F \ 38.3C but tomorrow into early next week may be even warmer. Normally September brings the hottest temps so it is not unusual even in a year that has been the coolest on record for much of coastal California.

We hit 99.9F yesterday with no breeze.

At 9:30am we're already at 91F and the dry air is heating up quickly. I think it'll be hotter today if the air stays still.

OK a billion degrees!

Actual temp, from a thermometer, currently 12:10pm

Lemon Grove, 102F, 18% RH

Spring Valley, 103F, 9% RH (the dirt and brush canyon make a big difference in the dryness)

SW breeze just kicked in so hopefully we've topped out and won't get any hotter.

Both my thermometers read 98F at noon. Instead of handwatering I went around since early this am with a sprinkler. I was sitting on a path smoking a cigar while the sprinkler was going under a pepper tree. There was a whole flock of these little finches in the trees behind me and musta been around a 100 hummingbirds buzzing through the sprinkler and relaxing in the pepper tree. I ain't gonna work on the path today.

No work outside today Ron, I don't blame ya. I'm gonna have some ice cream.

Lemon Grove now 97F. Just 30 minutes of a breeze and it's dropped 5F. Amazing what that stirring of the air does.

How are the palms taking that heat Matty ?

Apparently Trioderobs palms are "exploding"!

Mine are doing great and growing steadily. As long as I water during the heat, and it stays under 105F, everything seems to do just fine.

Normally the temp rises throughout the day but it's still going down. It's 95F now @ 1:00pm. Weird.

Ungodly heat today. Downtown Los Angeles is 113F\ 45C w/ similar temperatures up and down the coast of southern California. This type of heat can definitely cause burning. It is so hot that I am too much of a wuss to even go outside to water down the palms but will do it soon. The morning minimum was 80F\ 26.6C.

Yeah, it was around 80F this morning which I've never seen it that hot in the morning.

We're back up to 101F again @ 2:30pm as the wind has died down.

Patience grasshoppah; one day summer does not a palm make.

Lemon Grove, 3:40pm and we're back up to 105F. Wackadoodle temp dip today. :blink:

EDIT!!!!

Ooops,

The sun angle was just right that a beam was coming through a gap in the patio cover and hitting the wood that the sensor is mounted on. I used a hand held in the shade and it's 96F. So it did cool down in the middle of the day but the heat back up wasn't as dramatic as I thought. Next thing ya know I'll be using a wheelbarrow as a rain gauge. Ghetto weather station.

After hitting 105.3F at 1pm, it's still quite hot at 102.7F at 4pm. I think my winter nemesis, the San Luis Rey River, is channeling Temecula heat to the ocean and I'm right in it's path.

At 4:10 PM it's 95.1 F in San Francisco, and the "official" temp in Walnut Creek is 103.5. My temp probe in the shade is reading 108F. A brown out or black out would not surprise me this afternoon.

top temp right on the beach today ?

107 F

here is why:

Balfour said today's unusual heat at the coast was caused by a series of events that began last week when high pressure began to build over California. At the same time that was happening, a low pressure system was starting to form offshore. Usually, the low pressure forms in the Imperial Valley. But Balfour said the low moved to San Clemente, Santa Catalina and Santa Rose Islands.

Scripps Pier cam

Generally speaking, air sinks, moving from a high to a low. So the dry winds created by the high pressure system flowed all the way to the coast, and beyond, instead of just to the desert. Those winds also heated the atmosphere. And the winds sank lower to the ground. Usually, the inversion layer -- an area where warm air sits on top of cooler air -- is at about 1,500 feet at this time of year. But the inversion was at 500 feet at 4 a.m. today. And the temperature at that altitude was 95 degrees. The temperature on the ground, at Lindbergh Field in San Diego, was 71 degrees. As the sun rose, the ground warmed up, causing the air the air to rise. And that warm air mixed with the hot air from the inversion.

"Wham-o, we had hot temperatures right away," said Balfour.

Weird. Los Angeles must have melted.

Must be a bit like western Oregon, usually once every summer. An east wind makes eastern Oregon have an Arizona-type monsoon, while the wind crossing the Cascades descends and dries out everything in western Oregon. 100 degrees or so.

Locally, the record high is 102.

Well, we cooled down to the mid-80s today but the humidity was almost Florida like. Palms must have liked it. Me, not so much.

It would be great if it rained; plenty of lightning this evening but no showers so far. Actually dry lightning is the last thing we need since the dry brush is just waiting to burst into flame. Better chance of thunderstorms tomorrow. Nice cooldown today.

Woke up to massive thunderheads to the east, and it's been raining off and on all morning. Nice lightning too.

I can't remember the last time we had this much thunderstorm activity in San Diego. We're getting rain and more than just a single downpour. It's rained off and on all day. .08" of measurable rain in Lemon Grove so far today. It feels like Florida. I drove across the Coronado Bay Bridge today and looking across the east county there was rain falling all over the place.

There is a roofing crew next door in the rain, and lightning, roofing the house.

It is so hot that I am too much of a wuss to even go outside to water down the palms but will do it soon. The morning minimum was 80F\ 26.6C.

That sort of heat is painful. Impossible to keep everything moist in those temps. Everything drinks the water like mad in those temps. Also once you get above 40C all those things that you thought were sun hardened and looked pristine, are suddenly fading, some things maybe totally defoliated. It's one reason I have dense canopy here, but you still can't protect everything. Dry winds with those temps are fatal, so if it's still, you can say it could be worse.

Also if it's too hot to go out and water the palms, give yourself a good watering down, then go out and water your palms. :D Much more pleasant.

Best regards

Tyrone

matt-

talking about lightning in san diego.

very rare to get this much.

but 20 years ago I was hit by a severe HAIL storm on 15 near mission valley.

that was the most wild weather I have seen in 35 years in san diego.

also years back there was a freak storm hit san ysidro and they got a inch of rain in

15 minutes, a once in thousand year storm !

I remember a hail storm that put so much hail down that it looked like snow. It stayed on the ground for 5 or 6 hours. Cars were making tracks in the street and we made a "snowman" out of hail. This was about 20 years ago.

Hi Tyrone,

The extreme heat is over and there is some damage but so far it doesn't look too bad. It turned humid the following day after the 113F\ 45C and has stayed moist and warm but not hot [no readings over 100F\ 37.7C]. Some pretty violent thunderstorms continue to circulate w/ lots of lightning but only brief light showers each day. Maybe the lack of wind and a quick transition to humid conditions has helped keep the palm damage to a minimum.

It's so weird that everything is wet but it's warm outside. The only time my entire yard and mulch is wet is usually when it's cold. I love it.
