- Cool, cloudy air and lower temperatures return to the Bay Area
By Cynthia Dizikes - Monday Sep 4, 2017
After a long weekend of record-breaking heat, Bay Area residents anticipated the return Tuesday of a familiar summer companion: the marine layer. “Clouds will be back and a bit of patchy fog,” said Charles Bell, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “We are going to see a return of that natural air-conditioning across the Bay Area.” Forecasters expect the week will bring temperatures far closer to normal, with San Francisco in the mid-60s to lower 70s, Oakland and Berkeley in the 70s and lower 80s and San Jose in the 80s. Communities further inland, such as Livermore, are expected to be in the mid-80s, with some spots hitting the low 90s.

- Temperate Northwest gets blasted with furnace-like heat
By STEVEN DUBOIS, Associated Press - Wednesday Aug 2, 2017
(AP) — Forecasts for triple-digit heat have caused a minor panic across the Pacific Northwest, a region famous for cool weather that is getting blasted with a Phoenix-like furnace after a coastal weather pattern went into reverse.The temperatures feel particularly searing in normally temperate cities across Oregon and Washington, where many people do not have air conditioning because they rarely need it.Many communities have opened cooling centers and warned residents to stay hydrated, avoid strenuous activity and keep their dogs out of parked vehicles.The National Weather Service slightly dialed back its forecast for Portland to match or break its record high of 107 degrees (41.7 Celsius).Portland's light-rail trains are operating at slower speeds amid concern that the heat will cause tracks to expand and risk a derailment.Heater, who endures jokes about her last name, said having air conditioning was a requirement when she moved to the fourth floor in a recently constructed apartment building.Amazon took lengths to keep the potential employees comfortable, handing out iced bottles of water.Some temporary workers hired for the day ferried trays of cups overflowing with blue, red and yellow shaved ice to the sweltering applicants from a truck playing steel-drum music.
