The summer heat is here to stay

Early forecasts had the temperature reaching 100 degrees in Lamorinda this weekend. Those numbers have dropped to the low 90s, but those hot summer days are finally here.

The forecast is showing nothing but sun from here on out, although the temperature highs are expected to drop to the low 80s as the week progresses.

One thing people in Lamorinda often underestimate is the UV index, or strength of the sun’s rays. The typical hot, sunny summer day in Lamorinda will register a 10 out of 10 on the UV index, which means if you forget to wear your sunscreen, a burn is almost a guarantee.
