|Just chillin and waiting for high tide at the Hook, Santa Cruz.|
Sunday will not be quite as warm, and as the wind gradient begins to center off of Mendocino, we could see a south flow develop. That could mean some fog. Looks like we will be spared on the weekend, but next week could have some foggy mornings. Depending how the system sets up, some days could stay grey. We are moving into June. Hopefully we don't see much of the gloom this year. My tomatoes have been enjoying the sunshine. By Sunday we should be back in the mid 70s. Low temperatures over night hover around 52F. That looks like the forecast for the week. With that marine layer though it will feel quite a bit cooler on the immediate coast. And stay near the coast as this weekend will be hot inland, and quite warm next week. Hell, it does not even look like it will cool off Saturday overnight in Tracy with a low of 65F, which will feel pretty cool after a day that hits 99F. Sure is nice living in Santa Cruz.
Surf is running small, and clean in town. Winds are on it up north. No solid swell to speak of, but moderate local north wind swell will build through the weekend. Mornings could be calm up north, and as the south flow develops by Monday, we could see a few days of clean conditions and head high surf up the coast. Then that will die. Big news is the chance of another solid southerly swell system arriving some time around next weekend. Let's hope we get some calm conditions this time around. In the meantime, word is Wilder an vicinity have been riding very well, so you can always hop on the bike. Check back here for an update on the fog, next week's weather and the coming surf.
