Good Wednesday morning, 

So much for the sunshine and warmer days.

Fall is officially here, last night I even turned on my fireplace for the first time in 6 months. 

Where chill was in the air here, the Dodgers were heating it up against Tampa.

Today we have another cooler day. With fog and highs barely to 70s:

Good Tuesday morning,

A cooler week will continue, with a few twists. Today we are starting out again with fog.

Today, however, we should see a faster burn off with off shore winds starting later today.  

Wednesday should lead to sunnier skies with less fog. Highs will still stay in the mid to upper 70s along the coast and mid 80s inland.

Good Monday morning,

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Now it is back to the work place for another week of fun.

Our forecast for the week is going to be more in agreement to everyone. Last weeks heat will turn to seasonable nice.

Highs on the coast in the 70s and valleys in the 80s with some marine layer to start this morning.

Good Thursday morning,

Tax day for those extensions. Finally a dodgers win…

Last night I was driving to LA at 8 pm and the winds were blowing along the 101 and the 405 with temps at 89 degrees.

This has created an new fire in Redlands, so here we go again. We will see the same conditions for the next 2 days.

Good Wednesday morning, 

As advertised, the heat is here. It looks like we will remain in the 90s through at least Saturday, Along the coast and near or above the century mark in the valleys.

It also looks like Friday will now be the hottest day.

If you are looking for relief, the beach is the spot. We were there last night for the 🌅 sunset and it was spectacular.

Good Tuesday morning, 

Outside of the weather we have Amazon prime days, and the new Apple phone is being released today. Dodgers lost and tax extensions are due in 2 days. ☹

It is going to be a hot day and only get hotter on Wednesday.

Early this morning it was still in the 70s and low 80s in the foothills of SLO and LA.

Clear skies out there:

Good Monday morning,

Well it is here, the heatwave will arrive today and last through the week: https://www.weather.gov/lox/

This will give us high fire danger, because of the dry conditions. The only good news is the winds will not be that bad .

Today the heat is really going to be felt to the north.

Solvang and SLO are going to be close to 100 degrees. Even normally chilly Pismo beach is going to hit 90.

Good Friday morning, 

There is not a lot of change in the forecast since yesterday, so we can make this a easy one.

Today you can see the low pressure system spinning off shore:

This system will spin down the coast and stay off the coast. Any showers will be in the coastal waters.
