Good morning, 

If you looked outside you would never think we were getting ready for a heat wave.

This morning it is very damp along the coast with some drizzle and wet patios.

The marine layer however is very low and clearing will come quickly.

High pressure and off shore flow will move in. High pressure over Arizona will move closer to us. As we know, this time of year is extremely hot in Arizona, so that will be our forecast the next few days.  

Today will be the start of the heatwave. This is going to affect all areas, coastal included.

Santa Barbara should hit 85 today and cooling will not come for a few days. Our evening will feel like you are on vacation in Cabo San Lucas or Hawaii. Lows tonight and Friday are likely to remain in the 70s at a lot of locations. 

North winds will keep us warm at night as sundowner winds compress are air keeping us warm.

Friday will be quite warm, all areas will start with sunshine and temps will rise quickly for all. Highs will be in the 90s coastal and 100 in valleys. At night, winds look likely keeping us hot again Friday night.

Saturday will be another hot day, but a break will begin on Sunday. 

Sunday, a break is not really going to make much of a mark, because highs will still be well above normal.

The start of next week should bring back the fog along the coast with onshore flow.

Ok, you are ready for the heat wave, see you at the beach.

Enjoy a summer vacation at home.

Thank you for coming up to do the demo for the Career Fair at Los Prietos. All the boys were fascinated by the chance to see how sheet metal is formed, and to do some of it themselves. A hands-on demo is always the most effective in getting the boys involved. We really appreciate your arranging the demo, especially since you had already put so much energy into the talk and demo you did for the Construction Technology class. The teaching and Probation staff were all impressed by how involved the boys were in your demo.
