|Low tide, down by the Hook, Santa Cruz.|
Saturday looks like a clear day from sun up until sun down. No fog, no clouds. Just summertime heat. At least in land. Gonna get into the 90s in LG and across San Jose. If that is not hot enough, try heading down to Pinnacles this weekend. With a little luck you could be seeing 100F daytime highs. Who wants to go hike a rock? Still not warm enough? Oakdale is looking at a forecast of 105F for Monday. Here in town it should be a nice, cool 82F or so and a little cooler right at the waters edge. Looks like some good beach days are on tap with a morning low tide around 9:30AM over the weekend. And the winds look light to boot. Yup, this high pressure is getting so settled up on us, the afternoon breezes will just be up around 10 knots or so. Enough to bungle the exposed surf, but not enough to break into town. Whether you are looking to be on a board or building sand castles, it don';t get much better than this. Maybe we will see you at the Hook poking around the tide pools.
Warm trend continues for us through early next week with daytime highs dropping back into the mid 70s for Wednesday. Inland can expect a little reprieve by mid week, but even San Jose will still be in the upper 80s. We could see a little bit of marine layer returning by then, but really just for brief morning visits, as the warm weather looks to continue through the start of July. Over all, June has been a pretty wonderful month so far, despite an off season rain storm. Luck us as we headed south into Big Sur for a little camping were able to stay dry. While home was cool and wet, we were warm and dry and looking out across a absolutely stunning expanse. If you've never been, you really must go.
In short, some excellent weather on tap for Santa Cruz. A chance for a little morning fog on Friday. Some afternoon wind on the north coast. Low to mid 80s through Tuesday. A little cooler after that, but still warm. Stay tuned, and go get some of that swell that is in the water. It is pumping out there for mid summer.
