A ridge of high pressure will expand over the next few days. It will push the marine layer even lower and inland temps (and coastal valleys) will warm into Saturday before cooling down the beaches will still see a low marine layer and occasional associated clouds. The subtropical mugginess will linger overnight and into early Thursday and there is even a minor shower chance as the leftovers from former Tropical Storm Hernan is getting drawn into the area thanks to a mid-level SW flow. The high pressure ridge breaks down Sunday and cooler weather returns Sunday through Tuesday. Another round of subtropical moisture could once again stream northward early to mid-next week.

Good morning! We'll see more moisture in the air today with a push coming from tropical storm Hernan to our south. That will mean more clouds overhead today and a marine layer that could be a bit more stubborn. The boost in moisture is likely to stick around into the... Read Story ›

The leftovers of a former tropical system off the Baja continue to stream into the area and over the next day or so we have a small chance of seeing a few drops of rain from it. The larger impact may be just the continued mugginess and generally warmer than... Read Story ›

Good morning! The high pressure ridge is holding fast, south of the four corners area. But some of the moisture that's worked its way into the skies over the Central and South Coasts, is beginning to dissipate as tropical storm Hernan breaks up. Still, we're in for another muggy day.... Read Story ›

I don't want to over-advertise the chances for a shower or two, if it rains it won't add up to much, but the SW steering flow pushing monsoon muggy air is with us into Wednesday (at least) and with it a minor chance of a few drops here and there.... Read Story ›
