A weak cold front pushed through the Central Coast Thursday and behind it high pressure is moving in for the weekend.
The transition will be marked with increasing winds. Some offshore winds will be around the next few mornings and could locally be as strong as 15mph, but the afternoon return flow looks stronger with winds to 25mph.
Skies will be clear and highs will get back into the mid up upper 70s.
There is another very weak storm system passing to the north again Monday should increase clouds again and give us another sprinkle chance Sunday night into Monday but most should see little impact other than temps dropping a few degrees.
Beyond that high pressure builds again for another quiet and dry stretch.
Today government forecasters came out with an El Nino watch for a 50-50 chance of seeing an El Nino next season. This follows a forecast we talked about several weeks ago which mentioned the same finding by another group of scientists. This has the potential of raising optimism about next year's rain season however it should be noted that not all such forecasts materialize. Stay with us and we'll update that as often as new information presents itself.
