Sunday, August 14, 2016
Forecast: Sunday - Tuesday we are going to cool down slightly from our near 90 degree days we had Friday and Saturday. Expect to see some morning clouds clearing to sunny skies with temperatures reaching the upper 70's and low 80's. Wednesday through next weekend will warm up slightly with less on-shore flow, clearing skies day and night with high temperatures back up to the mid-80's. Lows all week will average right about the 60 degree mark.
Average temperatures: The big weather story the past year and a half now has been our above average temperatures compliments of the affectionally named "Blob" in the Pacific Ocean. The Blob was a pool of warmer than normal surface temperatures that has now moved on to the North Pacific south of the Bering Sea. Since it has moved away from our coast, we've started to cool back down to near normal temperatures July and early August.
Until our recent heat wave (Friday and Saturday) we were actually running about normal for this time of year.

For the remainder of the summer and into fall, I'm keeping an eye on a developing La Niña pattern that may put a solid end to our above average temperature streak.
