But we have not yet seen the turn of the season. Summer comes back to us tomorrow. It tried Monday night, and failed. But this time, the fog will roll in tonight, and do its thing. Thursday, high temperatures should be a good 15 degrees cooler than today. Yup, high 60s. And it could get worse over the weekend as a south south west flow may keep the fog on us through the entire day. On the other hand, this should keep the surface conditions good all day for the incoming swell. That at least could help the crowd factor.

For you mountain bike folks, the trails are in really good shape in Wilder and up at UCSC. Englesman Loop in Wilder has been rerouted along its northern side, and the results are astounding. About a 1/2 mile up the fire road, the reroute is a single track that keeps ducking into the forested canyon and back out into the meadowed hillside. The really cool thing about it, is every time you pop back out into the meadow, you have an even better view of the Monterey Bay. It is great way to climb. Things should stay pretty good out there until the rain comes, which should be still a few months away.
Great day in store for us today. If you can, get outside early and enjoy that rare summer morning sunshine. Foggy mornings and cooler days for the next week. Maybe a few days of fully fog over the holiday weekend. Hot and sunny inland. Nice in the mountains. Enjoy the holiday.
