Here on the oregon coast we had a high of 67 degrees today. Yesterday was about the same. We're getting a lot of tourists from the inland areas where it is much warmer.
There is some rain expected tuesday.

I posted earlier this summer in a similar thread, and I was rather smug because our weather was great while everyone else was suffering. I should have known better! Temps have been in the 100s the past three days. My apartment only has an anemic wall a/c! It's 87 degrees outside now - at 11:00 p.m. The forecast for tomorrow - 111!!!

EEK! That's in the LA area, right? Man, that's hot. It's already started to cool down somewhat here in the DFW area as we head towards Fall. Basically 90-93 in the day/69-72 at night. I can't wait for Fall to get here. I love Autumn; it's my favorite season.

Yes, it is the L.A. area, more specifically the San Fernando Valley. So-Cal is comprised of micro climates, which means I can go to the beach a few miles away, and it'll be in the 70s. Here, it's already 99 degrees at 11:00 a.m. This weather is supposed to continue through Labor Day, only beginning to cool slightly on Tuesday.

Default Sacramento heat

It has been 104 and a 102 the last few days. Suppposed to be 100 today.

Question: what is the heat index and where do you find that? I didn't see it on the weather channel.com

Ugh. I bet that's especially bad since you're not used to that kind of weather out there. We've had tons of rain this year in Texas, which helps alot.

Sandy - I did the same thing - I bragged on this thread about our 70's weather that we had the first part of the summer - we live near the beach in Long Beach.....it has been in the 90's the last few days - probably 94 or 95 today....pretty miserable....the weather is supposed to go back to the high 70's by the end of next week....we don't have air conditioning - usually there are 2-3 weeks a year we wish we had it....we are getting air conditioning, LOL....now that menopause has hit, I can't take this heat!

The heat wave ended today...or it broke. Today we only reached 84 degrees, the first time since July 30 where the temperature was below 90 degrees. If it would've hit 90 today, we would've tied an all-time record for the longest heat wave.

It also rained today...I haven't seen that much rain in a long time! It was one of those rains you just love--no thunder or lightning, just heavy, peaceful rain. The air smells so much fresher now!
