Oddly Monterey has dodged it today after almost four months of endless gloom.

In other news, the ocean is cooling down pretty fast this year. Even in 2020 it finally warmed up a fair bit in September and stayed that way into late fall. Not so this year.

Looks like that was just a stray fog bank. It’s cooler now but still mild and the humidity has gone up.

Tomorrow looking toasty for the Manhattan Beach Hometown Fair. They’ll sell a lot of beer! Of course the marine layer could change its mind at any time and come roaring in.

I had the craziest dream last night of a freak cold front that brought snow and hail and record-shattering chill (down to 19 at the coast!). And it happened today in that universe. 

It was right out of that one movie, The Day After Tomorrow.

When did that happen? I was in Laguna Beach today.

O.C. Register (@ocregister) Tweeted: A 126,000-gallon oil spill from an offshore rig led to major ecological damage in Huntington Beach over the weekend, prompting officials to close beaches that could remain off-limits for weeks or months.

There’s something coming from the south bringing the high clouds in. 

The hot weekend also appears to have helped the ocean warm up some. The dark blue is gone from VC and southern SBC coasts.


The Ocean will coolback down this weekend due to the much cooler temps and rain potential.
