Another spectacular, yet dry, January day and the last Saturday of the month! High pressure continues to hold all Pacific moisture well to our north with only a very slight chance for much needed rain in our region.
So for tonight, look for some patchy fog along the coast and in some of our coastal valleys. We could also see a some moderate north winds near Gaviota, but there is no Wind Advisory in place at this time. Overnight lows will be mostly in the 40's.
For Sunday, look for cooler temperatures as a storm brushes our region while focusing its energy to our north. Highs will be in the 60's for most areas. High Surf will linger through the day, but the official High Surf Advisory will expire along the entire coast by the afternoon. With that said, very large waves from the northwest could still exceed 10-feet north of Pt. conception!
Looking ahead, as we get ready to say goodbye to January and hello to February, the persistent dry pattern will likely hold in place. This is getting to be a bit of a concern after starting out nicely in November and December. Our rain gauges need some work and at this time we just don't see any significant pattern changes where Pacific storms head our Way! Let's hope the long range changes soon. In the meantime, enjoy the mild and even warm weather as next week looks phenomenal! Highs will bounce from the 60's and 70' pretty much all week with even a few upper 70's possible!
