High pressure pumps, then settles, through the mid term

That rain storm was kind of nice.  This sun and warmth is very nice.  The next three day look quite nice.  Low temps of just about 50F.  A mostly clear sky.  Plenty of stars.  New long period swell arrives tomorrow morning building through the day.  High in the low to mid 70s.  Clam to off shore winds in the morning turn slack to slight on shore in the afternoon.  Another warm night on Thursday.  Friday looks just as warm, if not warm, and that swell peaks in the morning.  About 6 to 8 feet at 15 to 17 seconds.  Wind again are favorable.  Friday night will be another warm one.  And, yes Saturday will still be in the mid 70s, with a subsiding, but still fun, swell.  Then things back off a bit.

Rosemary fields forever.  Wilder Ranch, Santa Cruz.

Not enough to give us rain it looks.  My gut is telling me no more rain this month, as a series of systems will attempt to push under the weakening high.  But my gut tells me they won't make it.  Nothing to do with science there.  Anyway, that high pressure will push north and west enough for the east coast trough to bring some precip to the Rockies, but not looking like to us.  Not enough displacement.  We will see daytime highs drop back into the mid to upper 60s.  At least the snowpack we do have won't be melting away.

There is a chance of some raining developing by the end of next week.  There is also a goo chance of cooling weather, especially toward the end of next week.  We could even see some cold snow around that time.  Cold enough to snow cap some of the Bay Area higher peaks.  So, yeah, there is that to watch out for.  In the meantime, enjoy that warmth the next few days, and expect afternoon highs to start dropping on Sunday and through next week.  And pray for rain.  We still are in D3 drought.
