Humidity at 4% right now. I've seen it as low as 1% before, though. Winds have calmed down.

Very hazy today and air looks smoky to the north. Apparently the marine inversion is hanging around near the coast.

3-day history is broken on the NOAA sites now, but the drier air did reach Orange County sometime overnight with a dew point of 7 reported at 5:53 AM at John Wayne Airport.

Oxnard Airport had some insane Dew point swings yesterday. The Dew point temp went from -3 to 41 in just 5 minutes. That is truly remarkable!

Marine layer clouds are based at 1700 ft in San Diego, so there's no dense fog there, just the standard low clouds.

I walked a mile from work to the Spectrum to get lunch on Friday and even though it was near 90 degrees, the dry air was much more uncomfortable than the heat. Coming back with a cup of water, things were much more bearable.

Low clouds popping up out of nowhere at the warmest part of the day. That eddy must be chugging.

Nope, but the front page of NWS San Diego shows all the weather threats over the next week. Both onshore and offshore winds that are strong this time of year can be dangerous with everything bone dry this time of year.

The low cloud deck is rather thin with lots of holes overnight allowing the moon to shine.

Offshore flow to develop the next 2 days, but no Red Flag Warning so far, which is a good thing.

 

We are having an Indian Summer after a very cool spring, but that is not very unusual here.

I'll actually be gone for a while starting on the 21st, and I won't be back until around sometime in December. Too bad we couldn't get any interesting weather this month before my departure.

Army basic training. I've been told I get a two-week leave mid-way through it (around Christmas) but then I fly back out east to finish my training through roughly March. No internet access during most of that time so unfortunately I'll miss a lot of this winter here (and much of the next four years). Once I arrive at my unit in Spring 2020 and get situated, I will check back on here frequently but won't have obs or data of my own to show for quite a while. Ultimately I will come back however, eventually.

 

Much warmer here this evening, 13 degrees warmer than it was at this time yesterday (78F now versus 65F yesterday).

The site is actually not run by me - I only contributed by writing stories on a somewhat regular basis. I have already made arrangements with the owner, the site will continue but my contributions will stop for a while. I'm not leaving completely, however.

 

Also looks like ENSO-neutral conditions will be present for the winter. I've already seen local newscasters predict below-average rainfall this season, but ENSO-neutral years are always a gamble.

Halfway through the month and I have seen almost no clouds here at all since the 1st. Every day this month so far has been either completely Sunny or Mostly Sunny, as I keep track of on my wall calendar. The quiet summer continues into a quiet autumn. All we have had this month is some occasional offshore flow, and slightly warmer than average days (but normal night temps).

 

Octobers of 2001, 2014 and 2017 were also very dry and inactive like this (although the latter two were much, much warmer).
