108 Degrees Forecast in San Francisco as California Drought Continues

san franciscoThe National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the San Francisco Bay Area until Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. local time. Temperatures up to 108 degrees Fahrenheit are forecast for some some areas of the state today.

Unfortunately, instances like this are becoming the norm for the West Coast as the California drought lingers. Residents of the state have struggled to get by on limited amount of water supplies.

The Climate Prediction Center, an agency affiliated with the National Weather Service, stated in its monthly report in March that the outlook for summer will include a strong chance for El Nino, which has arrived. Climate scientists from NASA have also stated summer 2015 will be the hottest on record.

The years-long California drought has caused countless damage and suffering to farmers in the area. In 2014 alone, farmers in California recorded an estimated $200 million loss in dairy and livestock.

Due to the over use of groundwater, many lake beds and streams have completely dried up and are now just rocky beds. Water restrictions are currently in places in the areas that have been hit the hardest, especially in metropolitan areas like San Francisco. Many blame the prolonging California drought on climate change.

    Listen to the little whining leftists cry…wha, wha, whaaaa! It’s those evil human’s fault for causing all this man made, global warming caused drought. Of course, NONE of the leftists there are to blame at ALL, even though they also use fossil fuels and buy billion$ of oil derivative products.

    Anything the Communist media can to to advance the Communist (aka: “democrat”) Party agenda through global warming nonsense or any other propaganda means they can drum up.

    In the end, God is in charge, so maybe this is payback for all the self-worshipping, God hating, atheists who make up a large segment of the “CommieCrat” citizenry there.

    Yea, if you ever lived in CA or been out of whatever you’re from, you would realize how dumb your headline is – SF has many microclimates and never really ever gets about 80 degrees – well, maybe once every 5 years, it might hit 90 – on the other hand, in the suburbs as I am, getting to 100 is normal for the summer and while we never got to 108 the other day, we did get to 104. It’s hot but since we don’t have humidity – it’s okay and 100% NORMAL for summer. It’s normally around 80-90 out in the burbs and this year is warmer than last year but last year was weird, it was actually about 70 most all of the summer – so it varies and as a CA – we are NOT worried. The drought? I am not an agrifarmer and I do not need 100,000 gallons of water at $.00001 a gallon so I do not care. Do I try to use less water, yes but we are not out of water. We have LITERALLY an ocean of water. Come out to CA and see for yourself. And yes, IN SF, by the afternoon, you will need a sweatshirt.

    San Francisco weather is typically much cooler than the rest of the state. Wednesday forecast predicts a high of about 75 degrees for San Francisco bay. Also, dams are filled by rivers and streams, not ground water.
