|Well weathered cypress in Lighthouse Field, Santa Cruz.|
Today turned out pretty nice as the showers cleared out before sunrise. And what a sunrise, with clouds ringing the Santa Cruz Mountains. And while the clouds filled in for a few hours this morning, things cleared pretty well by mid day. And it felt warm. Got to love that California sun. So, when will all this end? It looks like we should see clearing across the region, starting along the coast, late in the day Wednesday. Cool air lingers on Thursday, but with some luck, and sun, we should be in the mid 60s. I am not thinking we will hit 70 here on the weekend, expect perhaps along the immediate coastline. Downtown and the upper westside, though, could be toasty.
Mid term things are looking clear and sunny through Monday. Storms continue to cruise across the Pacific, but the jet stream stays to our north, at least for a few days. Just going to say this now folks. It looks like there could be another storm coming in, with heavy rain. And it could be right around the end of the month, or, as your kids call it, Halloween. Be prepared for a wet night. You may want to work on your contingency plan. And this one looks a little warmer, which could spell the start of a really good base.
