Warming Wednesdays: where are your local temps are headed as carbon emissions continue?

The Wunderground weather site has a section which uses your location to draw a graph of scientists' projections of expected temperature change in your locality. You may have to enter your location under the "Climate Change tab/Local" tab; I can't confidently predict what your path might be because Wunderground knows my location already.

Here's what they show for San Francisco:

It does precipitation as well. Again, here's our city by the bay. Looks like rain.

The projections are based on the models used by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) studies. There's lots to explore here.

Despite every other legitimate concern, we cannot ignore that our economic and social system is rapidly making the planet less habitable. So I will be posting "Warming Wednesdays" -- reminders of an inconvenient truth.
