Pretty typical April weather where no single weather pattern dominates for too long.

Transitional areas of high and low pressure move across the West.

Today the Central Coast saw strong offshore flow which produced 80s and some low 90s around the area.  Tuesday will still be warm inland but coastal areas will see more onshore flow and marine influence keeping most temps in the 60s and lower 70s.

We will see a cold front move thru the area early Wednesday and another later Thursday morning.  I think these are dry frontal passages (though some drizzle or deep marine layer could accompany the passages).  I think the larger impact will be cooling temps and windy conditions.  NW winds the afternoon of each passage look to be 15-30mph and some 40mph winds Thursday afternoon may be possible.

Offshore winds and high-pressure return for the weekend.  Models are suggesting the beginning of next week could have something in store, so I will keep an eye on that.
