Summer Heat in Silicon Valley

Zabriske Point, Death Valley, CA

Touch of summer here in the Bay Area today with temperatures touching 90 degrees inland. On the evening news they are already showing pictures from the first serious blaze in this year's fire season burning now in Southern California.

It's too early yet for an extended period of hot weather in Silicon Valley but this acts as a reminder of what's ahead. Northern California is certainly cooler than the area around LA or San Diego but in places like Livermore or Gilroy then it's not uncommon for temperatures to go over 100 degrees once things heat up. Still, at least you always know that there's somewhere in CA that's hotter than wherever you happen to be, unless you happen to be in Death Valley of course.
