SACRAMENTO, Calif. — After the hottest August and September on record for much of Northern California, October is following the same path.
So far, we are halfway through October and the heat is not giving up. In Sacramento, the average high for the month has been nearly 89 degrees, with more 90s possible this weekend. When you look at the average temperature for the day, combining the high and the low, the average October temperature is nearly six degrees above normal.
And it's not just Sacramento, either. Stockton is nearly seven degrees above normal for the average daily temperature in October, too. Modesto is just under four degrees above normal and San Francisco is nearly three degrees above average.
Next week could see more of the same. The temps will cool into the 80s, but the average high for most Valley locations should be in the upper 70s.
Rain is also skipping the forecast for at least the next seven days.
