Triple Digit Heat Descends on California

SACRAMENTO, CA - The AndNowUKnow team and our fellow Sacramentans were treated to triple-digit temperatures this week, with the National Weather Service (NWS) issuing several Excessive Heat Warnings and advising that High to Very High Heat could result in significant risk throughout Northern California and the Western Sierra.

The Sacramento Bee reported that the NWS issued a warning on Monday of this week, effective through Wednesday, and noted temperatures in excess of 110 in communities throughout Northern California, including Chico and Redding.

Triple digit heat hits Northern California this week

The NWS warned that Northern Californians should limit outdoor activity, stay hydrated, dress for the heat, and pay close attention to the elderly, to children, and to pets.

Meanwhile, in central California’s Mariposa County, AccuWeather reports, the Ferguson Fire—which has grown since July 13th to affect 17,319 acres near Yosemite National Park—continues to burn, affecting air quality throughout central and southern California. The fire is one of several fires that have flamed up throughout the month due to excessive heat and arid conditions.

Will California’s agriculture industry be affected by the excessive heat and dryness? AndNowUKnow will offer updates throughout the weeks ahead.
