    That's hot: Special Weather Statement

    ... Hot weather is expected today and Saturday...

    The hottest temperatures of the year so far are expected to occur
    across the inland valleys of the San Francisco Bay region today and
    Saturday. A strong warming trend will continue into the end of
    this week... with temperatures reaching near record highs by today
    and Saturday in the interior sections.

    Temperatures in the interior valleys will be between 95 and 105
    degrees today. Saturday could be a few degrees warmer with
    temperatures approaching 110 degrees in spots. The warmest
    temperatures will occur in inland areas across the north and East
    Bay valleys as well as the southern Santa Clara Valley and the
    interior valleys of Monterey and San Benito counties.

    During this hot weather spell... temperatures along the immediate
    coast and near the San Francisco Bay waters will remain cooler.
    In the major urban area of San Francisco... readings will be
    between 70 and 85 degrees. The hottest weather will be confined to
    interior areas.

    Those that are especially sensitive to the heat should plan
    accordingly. Outside work and strenuous outdoor activities during
    the heat of the afternoon should be avoided if possible during
    this time. Pets are also very sensitive to hot weather and all
    precautions should be taken to ensure they have plenty of water to
    drink and if possible are moved out of the hot sun and into cooler
    shelter.

    106F today in Chico. Rode my Cross Check commuter anyways!

    Going to definitely get out for a trail ride EARLY tomorrow though, and then find some water to submerse myself in for the remainder of the 109F day.

    I was thinking about road tripping up to Anandel/RR tomorrow until I saw the temps. F that. I'll stick to the coast.

    Mboldt and I are going to attempt a 10,000+ footie ride up in the Sierra Azul/Kennedy/El Sereno range Saturday morning. The temperatures will soar into the triple digits in some of the more exposed areas (such as Powerpoles between Dogmeat and Kennedy/Woods junction). Should be a blast(furnace), yet cooler than it is expected to be over at Henry Coe.

    I just installed the seasonal portable window AC in the master room. Unfortunately stabbed my finger too.

    The bright side for us is this graphic. It's not even the high for the day and they have this same forecast for the next 10 days.

    I'm going to Oakdale for a friend's engagement party. It's supposed to 106. Luckily they live right on the Stanislaus River. I think I'll bring my dive mask, snorkel and fins with me.
    I like to ride bikes.

    Was thinking of heading to Demo as well - forecast says high of low-mid 80s in Scotts Valley / San Jose, which is hot, but not unbearable especially if hit early. Do you guys think it will be hotter than this in Demo? What else is fun, but on the coast & not too hot?

    Edit: Seems like Tamarancho is pretty much off limits b/c of all the happenings there

    It's going to be super nice in Ft. Bragg this weekend. The rest of the state is going to roast balls but it'll be awesome on the north coast! It's only a 3 hour drive from SF too.

    Ft. Bragg for me, not sure if I will be riding on Sat, and by Sunday it is supposed to cool off. Have to look at Roo's book to see if there is anything short and sweet.

    On Saturday it will be 2 laps at Downieville for a group of 6 of us. I expect to lose my body weight in fluid on each run.

    Marco and I still need to figure out the starting point. I suggested we start at Quicksilver and go up Woods, up Barlow, back down Barlow, up Woods to the Powerpoles/Kennedy intersection, across the rollercoaster, down Dogmeat, and figure out what to do from there. Probably will go down Priest Rock, across to El Sereno, and then back up Overgrown, up Powerpoles, either back down Kennedy (looping around to Quicksilver parking lot) or just hoof it back down Woods through Quicksilver. Either way, it’s not going to be a fun ride. I’m not planning on attempting any part of the route in a hurry. I did part of this route on Thursday at a “not really in such a hurry” pace:
