|A sunny, early spring afternoon. 4 Mile Beach.|
By Tuesday of next week, the high pressure center will be well to our north, and theoretically, we would be open to storm activity that could bring rain, and knock the fog out of the region. Problem is there are no storms upstream. So the fog will likely linger. Later in the week, the high will again move south, and into a blocking position, just as more storms arrive and pummel the PNW. Depending on how all that plays out, we might at least get our sunshine back. Sorry lettuce.
So, the surf is looking a little lack luster right now. We could see a small boost in the swell for Sunday, with windier conditions, and new wind swell, around next Tuesday. Not an epic forecast by any means. If you would prefer to get out of the grey, here are two options. If you ski, go ski. Weather in the Sierra is looking pretty nice right now, and the corn machine is still going. Resorts close over the next few weeks, so the season is coming to a close. Even if you ski tour, unless we get some late April dumpage, the spring melt out is going strong. Or, you could simply head to the foot hills or wine country. The wildflowers are going off right now. Purples, yellows, oranges, reds and more are alive the field of greens. It is a good time to go for a hike in the two to five thousand foot range. And it will be warm and sunny there. Or, just get out in the yard and get some work done. The nice thing about working on a foggy morning is that it can feel quite pleasant out. And pray for rain. We are still in the hole big time. We basically saw no change with the water from the last system, so, if you have not already, start conserving. Things are going to get tight.
