Expect more of the same, if not getting a little warmer, the next two days. Right now, Monday is looking the warmest, but really, it will be a luck of the draw kind of thing. Upper 70s. Then on Wednesday, a decent sized storm tries to move on shore well north of us. This will knock the day time highs down a bit. Expect us to top out at 70F. But, here is the suck. Usually, these systems either bring us a little rain, followed by fine weather, or the keep the high pressure squarely on top of us. In the second scenario we get warmth and light winds. Instead, on Thursday, it looks like the high pressure will redevelop to our north and west, in its summertime position. And you know what that means. Gloom. Grey. Fog. Boo. Yup. Starting Thursday, and into the following weekend, we could see summer time weather developing. Marine layer fills in overnight and last through late morning. It will feel cool and damp and daytime highs will be sitting around the mid 60s. And to make matters even worse, this high pressure in this location is much harder for any incoming storms to displace. That mean it will become increasingly difficult to get much needed rain water into the state. More boo. But what can you do? I don't make the weather, just report on it. In the meantime, get outside. It is gorgeous.
