While other parts of California are dealing with strong offshore winds today, locally winds are actually pretty light. A ridge in the upper atmosphere has produce surface high pressure resulting in generally clear skies with above average temps. This continues Wednesday.

Later Wednesday the ridge breaks resulting in more marine clouds near the coast and a gentle cooling trend of a few degrees. There is an interesting development of a cut-off low develops out of the new trough but the low will be too far south and west to do anything. Another trough passes to the north Sunday but also too far away to produce local precipitation but temps could again sag a little.

Early next week we could see some higher winds dropping temps a bit more. After that we should see some split flow in the jet stream keeping system too far away again thru th e end of next week as well.
