A mountain thing.

Warming and calming weather coming.  Mid to upper 70s today and into the 80s along the coast for the weekend.  The real heat will be in the Santa Cruz Mountains.  Want some summer fun?  Head up to Ben Lomand and hit the river.  Temps today will be in the mid 80s, and pushing into the 90s Saturday.  The right spots could hit 100F on Sunday, and it will still be in the 90's Monday.  Final blast of summer heat for ya'll in them hills.  Coast remains cooler, in the low to mid 80s.  Proximity to the ocean will be everything.  Morning off shores developed this morning up the coast. but it is still strong out of the northwest just off the coast.  That should come near shore this afternoon.  That gradient breaks down tonight and we will have a few days of clam.  Have a great weekend.

When in Rome, wear t-shirts with ridiculous English words and eat gelato.  Ice cream weather coming! 

Next week we see the temps dip as that marine layer returns Monday night and south flow could develop by Tuesday.  That would keep the grey around through mid day.  This will be driven by a developing broad, but weak, low pressure in the Gulf of Alaska on Tuesday.  This system will slowly drift south through the middle of the week.  As it get closer to the Canadian border later in the week, it would effectively draw in the fog moisture returning us to sun, and warming.  There is about a zero chance for rain south of the CA/OR border right now, but this is still a promising development and a shift toward a more autumn like pattern.  Some small, mid period swell would develop if this comes to pass.
