Today will be the last day I use the word “cool” before the words “warm”, “toasty”, or just “hot” become the norm. After yesterday’s cold front, a cooler air mass moved in from the north. The combination of this chilly air mas and clear skies overnight allowed temperatures to drop to 32° this morning. It’ll be a slow warm up today and highs will only make it to the low 60s, despite the sunny, dry conditions.
A large ridge of high pressure will form once again across the eastern Pacific starting Wednesday. This will block any storms from moving into our area for at least the next 7-days and will keep our skies clear. We’ll also see another thermal trough develop at the end of the week which will kick our highs up another notch with strong off-shore flow.
Highs will soar to the low 70s Wednesday, Mid 70s Thursday and upper 70s and low 80s Friday through Monday!
Enjoy this last day of “cool” weather before the heat is on!
