|Heart Chute looking more lovely to look at than ski. Kirkwood, CA.|
Here in Santa Cruz, Tuesday should look like Monday. Then we begin a clearing and warming trend. Fog may again be put on the back burner, creating great planting weather for your summer gardens. We are already into May, so you will want to get some of your longer period crops, such as tomatoes, into the ground this month. By Friday, we could warm back up into the mid to upper 70s. As of now, the weekend looks to be very nice with high temps pushing up towards 80F.
Before I finish up for today, I just want to note that a second storm moves through just to our north late on Thursday and early Friday morning. Right now guidance keeps us dry and my gut tells me that is correct. Still, I'll keep an eye on this one. Currently the forecast actually is good for minimal fog, warming temps and light southerly flow. A shift of a hundred miles could totally change the forecast, which could mean rain or thick fog, depending on how it pans out.
