I don’t see 90s this week but I do think we’ll be warm mid-week again and see plenty of 80s around the Central Coast.

We’ll experience night and morning offshore winds returning to the NW each afternoon. The differences in daily temps will be based on the amount of offshore flow before that switch happens.

Beaches in the 60s the next few days with limited clouds but then warming to the mid 70s to close the week. Coastal valleys in the mid 70s for the next few days before warming into the lower 80s to close the week with the interior valleys seeing very little day to day change with highs right around 80.

Early next week more onshore flow should bring temps back a little with perhaps more marine clouds but it looks subtle at this point.

In our never ending hunt for rain the models again are doing what they have done for weeks: kick the pattern change down the road. I don’t see much potential thru the 15th. Models do show a more favorable pattern: zonal (mostly west-east with few waves).

Zonal pattern would allow cold fronts to slice thru however that pattern doesn’t produce ample rains that amplified troughs do, and I don’t see that. So, my forecast is still quiet on rain until I see better signs.
