Heat Advisory Salinas Valley

Heat Advisory Salinas Valley

Fri, Oct 6th, 2023

Dear Ole Tyme Customers:

WEATHER ALERT: The Salinas Valley is going through a significant heat wave. The southern Salinas Valley has seen temps hovering around 100 degrees for a couple of days. Extreme temperatures will cause diminishing quality, yields, and availability. Coastal daytime highs have reached in the low 90s and inland highs up to 98-101 degrees. Overnight lows are on the warmer side and have been in the mid-60s to low 70s. Expect these high temps to last through today.

  • Warm weather will cause heat-related issues:
    • Decreased shelf life.
    • Internal burn, sun scald and growth cracks and seeders in iceberg lettuce.
    • Shorter harvest times.
    • Elevated insect pressure.


  • Row Crops (Iceberg, Romaine, Broccoli & Cauliflower) including tender leaf items (Parsley, Kale & Cilantro)

If you have any questions, please reach out to your Sales Representative.
