Morning offshore continues Thursday

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

With some offshore winds and building high pressure over California the marine layer has been getting cleared very early leading to sunshine and warming temperatures and this should continue through Thursday.

Beaches will still only hit the 60s and 70s again today and again on Thursday but interior temps will hit the low 90s Wednesday and likely jump into the high 90s Thursday and Friday.

Onshore dominant flow returns Friday and that’ll bring back low clouds and cooler temps to the coast, it’ll take a day or two for that cooler air to work inland.

We’ll keep cooling slight through Labor Day with roughly average daytime highs in my forecast, after that I expect a little warming through the balance of the week.

Waves continue to be a headline on the Central Coast

Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Friday afternoon

Surf will range from 4 to 6 feet and strong rip currents will exist at times today through Friday.

Exposed south facing shores will see the greatest impact including Jalama beach in Santa Barbara county as well as port San Luis, Avila beach and Cayucos in San Luis Obispo county.

The surf with very strong rip currents and long shore currents will create dangerous swimming and surfing conditions. Sneaker waves can bring unexpectedly large waves across rocks and jetties near the waters edge and suddenly inundate beaches. South swells also have a history of producing damage to boats docked at port San Luis.

Surf from hurricane Marie continued to build this morning along exposed south facing shores. Surf will peak this today then slowly diminish through Friday while staying above high surf criteria of 7 foot breakers or more. There is the potential for damaging and life threatening surf across south and southeast facing shores of Los Angeles and Ventura counties. These areas will potentially see the largest surf seen in recent years with breakers of 10 to 15 feet possible.

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.
