Warming up with eyes on the waves

There are a lot of elements to the forecast today:

In the short term the temps will start to warm up as high pressure starts to move into California. This will really start to happen in earnest later Tuesday and could even produce some weak offshore morning winds. Skies will clear more quickly and beach high temps should start to push 70 with coastal valleys pushing into the 80s by mid to late week and the interior will rise into the upper 90s if not 100 this week.

Friday is an interesting weather day, we could see some high clouds from hurricane Maria sliding into the area with some mugginess however there is also a trough pushing south from the Pac NW. We should start to cool by Saturday.

Along with that waves will also be building from the south from Hurricane Marie which is now off the Baja. A south swell of 4-6ft is possible Wed-Fri and the national weather service is already advising for it. Strong south swells are somewhat rare here so one of this magnitude is worth watching. Parts of southern CA could even see some break near 15ft. Marie has an interesting forecast path, even as it weakens quickly as it hits cool water it will still make it further north than most East Pacific storms.
