Temps get warm before marine layer firms up later this week

We saw some marine clouds this morning and an afternoon breeze, I think we’ll see a little less of both over the next few days. High pressure is building over the area and it’ll drive weak offshore flow over the next couple of morning with weak afternoon onshore flow (today will likely be the breeziest day of the next couple).

Apple blossoms.

I like inland temps to jump to near 90 Tuesdya and Wednesday. At the coast Tuesday looks warm and generally clear with highs in the 70s at the beaches and 80s in the coastal valleys. Wednesday still looks mild at the coast but I think we give away a few degrees, mid 70s for many of the valleys.

Thursday and Friday I think the marine layer starts to make a comeback at the beaches and near coastal valleys. The ridge totally collapses by the weekend with strong NW winds by Sunday and Monday with temps everywhere down. I think by Sunday and Monday inland temps are in the low to mid 70s with beaches in the 60s and coastal valleys like SLO and Santa Maria near 70. Rain can’t be ruled out Sunday with this system. Doesn’t look like a lot, but it is an idea models have had since last week.
