Tranquil weather to dominate for days

    There’s not much to say about the weather pattern over the next several days other than just “peaceful.” The current National Weather Service advisory maps says it all.

    To some weather fans, it’s boring, but for those that love September at the beach, it’s perfect.

    High pressure is currently dominating our weather. Sunny, seasonable, and comfortable today and tomorrow (highs 75-80), cool tomorrow night (low-mid 40s north and west, upper 40s-low 50s inland, and upper 50s at the coast), and high temperatures several degrees below normal Friday after a dry cold front passes through tomorrow night (highs near 70). High pressure returns for Friday before pushing offshore Saturday. Temperatures rebound back to around normal for the weekend, and another cold front approaches later in the day on Sunday, although it will be a mostly dry frontal passage.

    BOAT/BEACH: A classic September beach day! Light northwest/west winds, breakers and ocean swells around two feet, and ocean temperatures in the low to mid 70s. Well, for surfers, it’s not a “classic” late summer day because more than likely there’s usually fun waves, but the advantage for swimmers is that there’s a low chance of rip currents. Lifeguards are now off-duty in the majority of towns, so exercise extreme caution.
