Why is Northern California the hottest in late August to the beginning of October when the rest of the country is beginning to cool off? I asked the internet this question and got an answer. “In September, the interior of California starts to cool off with the onset of autumn. This weakens the interior thermal low, ultimately weakens the marine layer, and allows coastal California to have warmer weather in September through mid-October than is typical in midsummer.” So the low pressure area over the Central Valley sucks in the marine layer and we usually have a pretty nice summer with a much hotter beginning to fall.
And this is why I am trying to find more no- or minimal-cook dinners again this week.
