RAIN & THUNDERSTORMS??
That is the possibility today as two systems bring

More cool weather today as a closed low spins off the coast. This will deepen the marine layer and make it hard to clear for some beaches. There is also a high pressure system near the four corners region and it will try and re-develop and push in some dry air on Friday. This dry air will allow a small warm-up and thin out the marine layer. However, this dry air can also produce some isolated thunderstorms for some mountain regions too on Friday.
Temps on this Thursday:
Coast: 60’s and low 70’s
Coastal Valleys: 70’s and 80’s
Inland: mid 80’s and some low 90’s
Yesterday, Paso Robles topped out in the mid 80’s after days and days of being in the 90’s. This illustrates just how cool temps got from this closed low detaching from the trough.
While we struggle to warm-up the Midwest and East Coast folks are being hit with severe weather for days.
Missouri is being hit with severe thunderstorms throughout the state. This has prompted a tornado warning and flash flood watch.
On another note, Hurricane Bill has gained strength again and reached Category 4 in the Saffir-Simpson scale.
Here is a projected wind speed and path of the this dangerous and massive tropical system.
Folks in Bermuda are anticipating this storm to run straight into the island as it continues to gain in strength. It could become a Category 5 within the next 24 hours.

Another day of little change in the forecast. Marine layer a bit stubborn and dense this morning burning off for some areas late this afternoon.This routine will be similarfor Thursday but by Friday the marine layer is not has thick so it will give way for some warm-up.
The upper low spinning off the coast will come closer to the state on Sunday and dry out any humid weather we are expected to have on Saturday from the Southwest.

Mild to near normal temps continue here on the Central Coast as a trough in Northern California brings the cool. This is bringing cloudy to partly cloudy skies today.
Coast: 60’s and 70’s
Coastal Valley’s: mid to upper 70’s
Inland: 80’s with smoke and haze from the La Brea fire for some areas
We are expecting a warm-up by the middle of the week.
On the other side of the country, tropical storm Claudette is bringing heavy rain and strong winds to Florida’s panhandle.
Here is a link so you can follow the status of these storms. There are two more in the Atlantic called Ana and Bill.

Day 5 of the La Brea fire burning in the San Rafael wilderness and the U.S. Forest Service says it looks like this battle will be a long one.
I have covered the fire since Monday and the fire doubled in one day. Here is a look at Santa Maria on Monday night. Smoke from the fire made way for a beautiful sunset but health officials say the air quality is polluted from higher than normal particulate matter. Doesn’t this sunset look almost tropical? Maybe it’s the palm trees at the shopping center.
On Tuesday, the fire had already jumped over the Sierra Madre ridge line toward
