30 Percent, trying hard, and a perhaps a glimmer of autumn.

Gonna keep it pretty short today.  This mornings GFS has the coming storm wetter and further south, if less organized and weaker.  Still, the NWS is calling for a 30 percent chance of showers late this evening and into Thursday.  Less than a tenth of an inch expected, which possibly a little bit more rain in Humboldt County.  Some farmers up there I am sure are freaking out right now.  Most rain will fall on the coastal plain and mountains.  If we get any here in Santa Cruz, it will clear out before noon, as this storm is moving through pretty swiftly and will only be brushing our region.

Can't really complain about the weather much when the surf has been cranking for most of the month,  Steamers.

It does not look like this storm will do much for blowing out the marine layer and we can expect more foggy mornings through the rest of the work week and the weekend.  By Monday, high pressure will be trying to get its autumn foothold over central California and we might finally be graced with a period of a few days (or more) of sunny mornings and warming weather.  We could be calling for mid 80s by late next week, but it is sure too far away at this point to say anything like that with confidence.

So good news.  Maybe a touch of rain.  Maybe warm and sunny next week.  And the surf is cranking.
