It is heating up again out there. Also quite a few tropical depressions and hurricanes are forming in the Mexican coastal waters

The interesting facts are. I do not think there has been even 1 named tropical storm on the east coast this year. We have 3 brewing out there right now. 2 of them aimed towards Hawaii. The first towards the end of next week. 

This summer has also been one of the hottest summers on record so for in California. 

This is all starting to add up to warming ocean temps and a good possibility of a lite to moderate El Niño this rainy season. Water temps are on the rise, and are expected to warm even more over the next few months. If this does come true, we will be expecting greater rainfall this winter. 

Where this is still developing. The chances are looking stronger as we approach the fall. I am sure you will hear lots more chatter about this in the upcoming months. It will be very interesting to see what happens. 

In the mean time, expect the hot weather to continue. 

High pressure has built in over California again. Today will be another warm day, with some sundowner winds the next 2 nights.

This will be felt the most in western Goleta , bringing another round of high fire danger. 

Expect temps to remain in the upper 80s coastal though the weekend and inland in the upper 90s .

No relief early next week, with maybe some cooling by midweek.

It is August the 3rd and it has been quite a warm summer so far. Oddly enough the warm weather is typically just getting started. Our warmest months are August, September and October . 

So we have 3 more hot months to look forward to. 

Ok, that’s it for the day. 

Enjoy the weekend , and if you going to Hawaii next week. Keep an eye on
