Today will be a few degrees cooler as an upper-level low sits to the northwest of the area. Today won’t be as windy inland, but could see wind gusts up to 25 mph just on shore of the coast causing the Brookings area to be much warmer today than the rest of the south coast. There is a Gale Warning, Hazardous Seas Warning and Small Craft Advisory in effect for areas just off coast, keep that in mind if you’re heading out on the Pacific today.
Expect windy conditions to persist along the coast for the next couple of days, but calming by Wednesday. With calming winds expect the marine layer to be able to push inland and we’ll see fog nights and early mornings starting tomorrow night and lasting through at least Thursday.
We’ll see a warming trend for the next couple of days as the ridge over the nation shifts west bringing in warmer and dryer conditions to the area, making Wednesday the hottest day of the week. After Wednesday another upper-level low will shift south pushing the ridge back east again and cooling the area back to closer to todays temperatures.
Thanks for logging on and have a great Monday!
