In fact, this high pressure is looking to set up pretty damn solid. The upcoming week looks epic, with highs in the mid 70s, with upper 70s likely for Tuesday and Wednesday. Actually, I would not be surprised if we were to hit 80F, by the look of things. Daytime temps should moderate into next weekend, dropping back into the upper 60s as the next system up stream weakens and falls apart before arriving. Will still want to keep an eye on this system, as we are still six days out, and perhaps it could pick up more steam. Not looking likely though.
With lows in the upper 40s, it is not a bad period to drop some seedlings. At least it is a good time to get out and work that garden, and start on your prep for spring. Turn in that green manure. Work that back. Plant some lettuce. My dill is loving this weather, but I fear it might go to seed. Some kale did. Keep that winter garden moist by collecting the water that usually goes down the drain as you wait for the hot water to show up. That is all you will likely need. Anyway, enjoy this fine, fine weather. With some moderate surf this week, and off shore winds, it is the perfect time to go explore.
