Summer-Like Heat Returns to the Bay Area

It may be the middle of October, but summer-like heat has made a comeback across the Bay Area this week.

The National Weather Service over the weekend predicted that daytime high temperatures across the region could be 15 to 20 degrees above seasonal averages on Monday and Tuesday.

On Tuesday afternoon, the National Weather Service reported Salinas reached triple-digit heat with 100 degrees registered at the city's airport.

Watsonville reached 98 degrees, and was followed by Hollister and Monterey both registering 95 degrees in the afternoon.

Other cities that reached at least 90 degrees include Santa Rosa, Napa, San Jose, Concord, Half Moon Bay, Livermore and San Martin, according to the National Weather Service.

The Bay Area warming trend does include low humidity levels, which ramps up fire danger.

Those hoping for fall-like temperatures will likely have to wait until next weekend.
