Sunday’s a winner

     Visibile satellite.

    Visibile satellite.

    This weather report has been produced from my beach chair just feet from the ocean. The weather station about 500 feet away is reporting 71.4 °F and a NNW wind at 4 mph. Spectacular all around.

    The cold front has departed out to sea, and any remaining cloud cover, as seen in this satellite image, will dissipate as we proceed through the morning hours. High pressure will build throughout the day, delivering unseasonable weather: cool and dry! Mostly sunny all day, with temperatures on either side of 80, slightly cooler in the mountains. A northwest breeze will develop later, making it feel more like September.

    Tonight will really feel like a late summer evening. Winds will decrease, and the clear night will features temperatures in the 50s (around 60 along the coast) and the 40s in the mountains. Monday will be about the same as today, but cooler in the morning.

    BOAT/BEACH: You know the deal. Seas and breakers are in the one to three feet range. A northwest breeze will pick up during the afternoon, but the National Weather Service does not anticipate any marine advisories. The ocean temperature is around 70, and there is a low risk of rip currents, but always swim near a lifeguard nevertheless.
