For those of you wondering where this recent heat spell came from, look to the east. The famous Santa Ana winds have arrived in town, blowing in from the desert to wreak havoc with our cool fall temps and our noses. If you suffer from outdoor allergies, you may have noticed that you've felt a little stuffed-up as of late, probably from all of the gunk that the Santa Ana's are carrying in from areas outside the city.
Thankfully, they usually only last for a couple of weeks. Here's hoping that crisp Autumn weather returns before the end of November -- my long sleeve shirts and sweaters are getting pretty lonely in my closet!
