It’s been a hot summer for us in the valley, downtown Sacramento hit at least 90 degrees through each day in July. That’s right, all 31 days of the month were scorchers that made visitors and residents in the area running for the shade.
According to the National Weather Service, that’s never happened before in records dating back to 1877 for downtown Sacramento.
Ryan Sabalow and Dale Kasler of the Sacramento Bee broke the news Monday afternoon. According to their report, Tuesday is expected to bring high temperatures of 106 to Sacramento. The worst will come in Redding, which could see the mercury spike at 116 or more Tuesday afternoon.
If it gets that hot, it will break local heat records for that date, said the weather service’s Michelle Mead.She urged everyone, but especially workers who labor in the outdoors, to find an excuse to say inside.
“If at all possible, if you can not be out in that heat, if there’s other work you can do … get somewhere with air conditioning,” Mead said.
