For the first time since June, Sacramento enjoyed a daytime high BELOW 90 degrees! Yesterday’s high (8/14) temperature was 82 degrees, the coolest day we’ve had since June 12th, snapping our streak of 90 plus degree days. But, we did set a heat record in Sacramento with 47 consecutive days of temperatures 90 degrees or higher, beating the old record of 40 straight days set in 1992. Yesterday also marked the 11th straight day Sacramento has had daytime highs below 100 degrees.
