Southern California this week is going to be a dangerous and painful furnace. Today it was 120° in Indio (desert town). The emergency services people have put out a dire bulletin advising people to be careful of the high temperatures and unusually high humidity, and not to leave old people, children, or animals in cars, and for chrissakes don't die of the heat.
Meanwhile, the report ends with this:
ONSHORE FLOW AND A MARINE LAYER INFLUENCE WILL KEEP TEMPERATURES FAIRLY MILD ON THE COASTAL PLAIN...GENERALLY IN THE 70S AND 80S...EXCEPT 60S ON THE BEACHES.
Thank you, Dad, for buying a house in Paradise 40 years ago.
