I've been here 3.5 years and each and every year, at any time of the year I've been told by neighbors and other people who live near me that "the weather is really unusual".

So I have to ask for a consensus. Is it normal for it to be this hot in September? In your experience.

When should it start getting cooler?

I can't keep any of my vegetables alive...I actually have a fan on them.

Thanks for any help.

September normally is the hottest - it's when the kids go back to school and have to swelter for a few weeks.

September is usually one of the warmest months. Helps dry everything out so when the Santa Ana winds start blowing soon it won't take much to get those annual SoCal fires raging.

Climate is what to expect. Weather is what you get.

Yes, JerZ. This is completely normal. I remember many times going back to school and coping with a major heat wave. Not fun, but I'd rather be here than in Florida!

September is merely a continuation of summer w/ often strong heat waves. It seems to transition from humid warmth to dry warmth by the end of the month. We have to brace ourselves for the "santa ana" winds that usually startup this month or October with fires in the mountains.

Thank you, happ.

I do remember the wind from last year (and the fires). I just didn't remember it being this hot...but maybe it was and I'm just remembering it incorrectly.

Maybe because July and August were really cool this year. I usually think of the hottest months as August and September.

We are almost guaranteed that it will be hot in September but next week should be a nice change for at least a few days may see a thunderstorm by next weekend
