September’s unusual weather? It was even weirder over a century ago in San Francisco
This September has been a never-ending series of extremes.
At the beginning of the month, Californians had to deal with a heat wave that lasted for a week and a half. The Bay Area had a number of all-time temperature records broken. A huge wildfire started on Sept. 6 in Placer County and spread to El Dorado County. Thousands of people had to leave their homes. Then, the rain started. OR Then, the rain began. A tropical storm named Kay traveled far north along the Baja California Peninsula and brought heavy downpours to Southern California, causing flash flooding and mudslides. A storm is a large and powerful weather event. A typhoon is a type of storm that occurs in the western Pacific Ocean. Last weekend, storms brought showers to the Bay Area.
When the jet stream, a sinusoidal track of west-to-east winds miles above the United States, is extra-wavy, dramatic swings in weather can happen.
Jan Null is a meteorologist who studies weather patterns. He says that next to big ridges (areas of high pressure), you have big troughs (areas of low pressure).
When these weather swings occur back-to-back, it can lead to a string of unusual weather events. The recent heat wave was caused by a ridge of high pressure, and this week's rain was caused by a trough of low pressure.
Similar conditions may have led to an even more bizarre September over a century ago. While temperatures in San Francisco didn’t break records in September 2022, the Bay Area hit an all-time high of 116 degrees in Fairfield and Livermore. On September 6, Santa Rosa set a record temperature of 115 degrees, and on September 8, San Jose reached 104, which broke a record that had been set in 1904.
Even though it was hot that year, the Weather Bureau forecaster McAdle warned that the weather would be changing drastically. There was fog offshore.
I would tell everybody, especially visitors, to always be ready to put on heavier clothes and coats. The moment the wind is strong enough to bring in the fog, there will be a big drop in temperature.
In a few days, it will be much colder than it is now.
