Offshore winds will drive even warmer high temps

Posted at 4:46 PM, Oct 24, 2018

We saw a lot of low 80 degree highs on Wednesday with some weak offshore winds establishing themselves. That flow will pick up in the night and morning hours into Saturday. The general push will be about 5-15mph but locally gusty spots could see offshore winds to 25mph. Interestingly the winds do an about face in the afternoon and become 15-20 onshore which will mean early peaks for daytime highs near the coast around 1pm before dropping back into the 60s by 6p.

Highs in the mid-80s in the North County again Wednesday with low to mid 80s at the coastal valleys and beaches in the 70s.

Coastal and interior valley temps could creep toward 90 Friday and Saturday.

Early next week the marine influence returns.

I don’t see much in the extended forecast thru the first week of November. Outside early next week (when a transitional trough swings thru) the American GFS rebuilds a big ridge over The West keeping things clear, dry and generally warm.
