October Brings 100 Degree Heat Wave to Watsonville

Summer isn't ready to leave yet, and after mild temperatures all summer long, the heat wave of the past few days reached its climax on Monday.

Monday's high temperature was 100°F at 2:05 p.m. in Watsonville when conditions were sunny, according to the Weather Channel. 

Although it doesn't break the record high of 106°F in 1987, today's temperatures were among the hottest of the entire summer, and well above the October average of 72°F.

Tuesday will also be a hot one, with an estimated high of 89°F. By Wednesday though, we'll be back to around 73°F, according to the Weather Channel.
