|The Palio. Siena, Italy|
Marine layer is thin this morning. Should burn off shortly. Highs in the low 70s. More of the same tomorrow. But we begin to see less intrusion by the marine layer by Thursday night, which will send us into a warming trend. First, we see some gusty north west winds keeping that layer away, then by Sunday, a high pressure dome might begin to protect us. That would mean much less wind. And more warmth. Mid to upper 70s on Saturday and mid 80s by Sunday. That should be the peak, but Labor Day itself looks like it should stay quite nice.
What is interesting is how autumn like things look in the high Sierra. Typically, it would be hot up in Tahoe this time of year. It is not. Lows have been dipping into the 30s at elevation, and Friday night should dip below freezing. Daily high temps dip into the 50s mid week, by rebound into the mid 60s for the weekend. Odd that in summer the coast will be hitting the 80s and the Sierra only the 60s. That spread is more typical of winter than summer. Perhaps we are seeing the turn. SOmething to watch.
