we're starting above average before the day even begins to warm up. as for why this is all happening, the ocean has nothing to do with it. the ocean temperature is still about 56 or 57 degrees. our flow of air has everything to do ant it. the ridge of high pressure is parked in the perfect spot to induce or pull out central valley's weather. our wind is in the north and northeast. we have the smoke, the haze, the heat. that's why even san francisco hit 106 degrees today. the ocean influence didn't matter at all because the wind direction was from the opposite way. now the heat will be finished by labor day. this is the change. it will be done by labor day, we'll almost be back to average with some showers to the south because of this area of low pressure and the remnants of a tropical depression. we'll get cloud cover and cooler weather, but we have to get through tomorrow first, and tomorrow will be hotter inland. if 116 happens in livermore, we think it will, it will be an all time record high.
