I’m not going to lie. It’s January 14th. It’s sunny. It’s 87°!
Are you kidding me? We’ve already blown through the forecast high.
I have one of my office windows open. There’s a cool breeze. No need for a/c.
It doesn’t seem logical. 87° and a cool breeze simultaneously.
This is where the dew point comes in, it’s 4°. The relative humidity is 4%. Exceptionally dry.
The dry breeze evaporates moisture on your skin, which cools you and makes this temperature very comfortable.
Yes, this weather is unusual. 81° was today’s record at John Wayne Airport. It’s been smashed.
There are serious implications from our dry weather. Most of California is already water challenged. And, of course, fire danger is high at a time of year fire season should be done.
