Rain not likely the rest of the month

A ridge of high pressure is setting up over the next few days. The breezy onshore winds will turn offshore over the next few mornings through Friday as surface high pressure builds.

This will do a few things: clear out the skies, warm up the temps and keep the rain track well north of the area.

Beaches look to near or get into the 70s as early as Wednesday with Thursday and Friday being the warmest days of the forecast. Coastal valleys look to be in the mid to upper 70s Wednesday but warm to the low to mid 80s Thursday and Friday. Inland highs warm from the lower 80s Wednesday to the mid to upper 80s Thursday thru Saturday. The ridge shifts a bit early next week for some cooling but temps still warmer than average.

The mean position of the jet stream thru the end of the month should keep most significant rain chances too far north of us. There are signs that November could get more active but it is at the tail end of the model run which tends to be speculative.
