Those who have only lived in SF for a couple of years might have been kind of shocked and depressed by the monotony of the wind, fog, and grayness for the entire month of August and the majority of July as well, given that last year we had a warm and sunny summer by comparison. Longtime residents, while used to this sort of thing, have still probably noted that this was one of the worst Augusts in memory and they'd be right. As SFGate reports via Jan Null, a meteorologist for Golden Gate Weather Services, temperatures in the city hit 70 only one time in all of the month of August, and the last time that happened was in 1942.
The whole month we averaged a high temp of 65, three degrees below the historical average.
And Labor Day Weekend isn't going to offer any relief, despite a couple of decently clear days earlier this week with lovely sunsets.
According to the National Weather Service, a low pressure system hovering here keeping the clouds, fog, and wind pouring in, and you can expect highs just in the mid-60s this weekend with The Weather Channel not even showing sun on my iPhone app for Saturday, just the wind icon.
At the risk of repeating myself, it is September 1st, everybody, and it is 59 degrees right now. Fogust is not welcome here anymore.
