October Brings 100 Degree Heat Wave to Watsonville

Temperatures should taper off to the 70's by Wednesday.

Summer isn't ready to leave yet, and after mild temperatures all summer long, the heat wave of the past few days reached its climax on Monday.

Monday's high temperature was 100°F at 2:05 p.m. in Watsonville when conditions were sunny, according to the Weather Channel. 

Although it doesn't break the record high of 106°F in 1987, today's temperatures were among the hottest of the entire summer, and well above the October average of 72°F.

Tuesday will also be a hot one, with an estimated high of 89°F. By Wednesday though, we'll be back to around 73°F, according to the Weather Channel.

Wow I love sunny weather, but I wasn't prepared for THIS!! I usually leave the front and back doors open to let the cool breeze in, or at least some fresh air. Yesterday however, the hot weather apparently also brought the yellow-jackets out in our yard. Once i cooled down a bit, we enjoyed a late dinner on front porch watching all the people strolling by.
