|Mid morning on Hemlock Lake, New York. If you have not been, go paddle a finger lake.|
Well, our weather patterns are changing again, as we see our usual high pressure start moving back into place by this weekend. The good news is some warmer air should pump into the region, bringing us squarely back into the mid 70s along the coast here. And it looks like we may be spared the intrusion of the marine layer, with sunny morning on tap starting as early as Friday. I will believe that when I see it. Still, nothing like the fog/rain/drizzle we had a few days ago. Things got wet on my porch for sure. And we could also be seeing the arrival of a moderate south swell by late Sunday. The storms did not quite develop as once forecasted, so no super swell, but fun none the less. Head high and 17 second periods for Monday and dropping from there. Nothing too exciting on its heels. Some say this is the year of the September Souths. Let's hope because it has been dismal otherwise. Lucky for us the wind swell has been plentiful.
Well, Fabio decided to take his shirt off and send us a fun little bout of waves. This morning saw regular swells breaking in the waist high to several feet overhead range. Know where to go and get what you want. He is not done though as moisture and energy are pushing up the California coast. Santa Barbara will see some thunderstorm activity and Big Sur could see it this evening. With a bit of luck, we could see some action around the Monterey Bay. After that pushes through this area during Thursday, the high pressure will slowly begin to edge back into control of the local weather.
I won't be posting up much over the next few weeks, as I will be traveling through New England a bit to enjoy a little of their summer. Keeping the fingers crossed that we get some good beach days. They have some of the best beaches in the world in Southern Maine. And good donuts as well.
