For as warm as it’s been in the east, parts of California are cooler than they were in January. San Diego has reported record low maximum temperatures for the past week. Napa is north of San Francisco though. What are we doing there?
At 1254PM, PT, Napa was reporting a temperature of 69 degrees with clear skies. An unsettled pattered across the United States was demonstrated well by the upper levels which were littered with various eddies and troughs. Over the eastern Pacific a weak cut off low was set up, likely belaboring morning sea fog with the associated southeasterly flow for San Francisco Bay and the surrounding communities.
The low isn’t expected to move much for the next couple of days, which doesn’t bode well for a warm up in the Bay area, as the persistent cool, most flow will continue into the Napa Valley from the southeast. It won’t be as foggy as the cities along the immediate coast in the mornings, and it will likely be cooler than is typically expected this time of year.

Everyone is going warmer than what the models indicate, but that hasn’t born itself out lately, so I’m not sure where their ideas are coming from. We’ll find out soon enough what happens. The satellite is very quiet.
