It is not that it has not been interesting.

We did actually get some rain the other day.  And it was quite wide spread on the south facing slopes.  That is pretty interesting for July.  And right now the remnants of a western Pacific typhoon are formed into a small storm in the Gulf of Alaska.  Also interesting for July.  And while we have had short periods of strong north west winds, it has been a light year, with less upwelling.  The water is warm.  For here.  A lot of folks are hopeful for an El Nino, and this weather bodes well.  But there is chatter that the warm water pool is dissipating near the Galapagos, which does not bode well.  Anyway, that is all long period mumble jumble.  Even if one does develop, its strength, timing, and a handful of luck still determine the outcome.  But my bones tell me its gonna be a wet fall.  You are probably not yet mid way through your summer plans.  Hell, you might still be planning.  Don't let years of drought get you complacent.  Get things done early.  Then you can just enjoy things come fall.  Anyway, some weather.

April sky over Palm Desert.  Just came across these when digging around.

Fog at times.  Don't ya know.  Not much change over the next few days.  Low 70s.  By the weekend, we could see earlier clearing and a bit more warmth.  Cool summertime in Santa Cruz.  Great weather for working outdoors in.  Pretty good for surfing.  There are a bunch of small mid to long period swells out there right now and for the next few days.  Go get some glassy goodness.  Bet the light has been killer for hiking and biking.  Or shooting off a roll of figurative film.
