Good gravy! It’s in the 80s

Notice anything different today? Stockton’s longest streak of 90-degree-plus weather in half a century has finally ended.

July 1 was the last time we fell short of 90 degrees. Since then it’s been 93 degrees or worse. Such a 43-day barrage of above-average heat is unusual, even for the Central Valley in July and August.

Which is why today’s 86 degrees never felt better.

Of course, it’s too much to ask for an extended period of below-average temperatures. The city is likely to be back in the 90s by midweek.
