High swells along the coast and significant warming trend on the way

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

A trough from a low pressure system is still lingering over our area and will be hanging around through Monday. That means more cool mild temperatures. Also, night and morning low clouds and fog. High pressure starts to push it’s way in mid-week bringing a significant warming trend. Possibly getting into the triple digits for some inland areas. We could see some high swells and surf along the coast through the end of next week with a lull on Monday then very strong conditions through Friday. The National Weather Service has issued a beach hazard statement for potential damaging high surf and coastal flooding Tuesday afternoon through Friday for Southeast and South facing beaches.

Cloudy cool mornings, then sunshine works it’s way in

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

Low pressure will remain over the western states through Tuesday keeping overnight low clouds and fog and slightly cooler temperatures. A deeper marine layer should develop for tonight into Sunday morning. Low clouds and fog should spread well into the valleys late tonight. Temperatures will be in the 60s for beach areas, 70s for coastal , 80s for inland. High pressure should build back mid-to-late next week bringing a warming trend and increased mugginess due to a tropical system off the coast.

Marine clouds prove ample again

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

There is an upper level low tracking through southern CA and interestingly touched off some thunderstorms with some 1″ hail in the Temecula area earlier Wednesday.

The upper-level low exits eastward and that will produce less extensive marine clouds on Thursday but there will still be plenty at the beaches and coastal valleys, just less inland.

Temps don’t change dramatically at the coast but warm inland.

There is a weak front pushing through early in the weekend for slightly cooler temps, some increase in humidity is possible from an active tropical pattern off the Baja but rain is not likely. We’ll likely warm a little next week as high pressure riding takes place and late next week we could again run into more sub-troical leftovers (mugginess/clouds) from yet another system in the Baja but it is too far out to say much more with any level of definition.
