We’re on the way to the beach in southern California, which sounds like an altogether wonderful idea.
At 953PM, PT, Santa Barbara was reporting a temperature of 54 degrees with clear skies. The entirety of southern California was seeing a sky full of stars, and satellite indicates that the marine layer is non-existent tonight.
A strong area of low pressure will be moving towards the Pacific Northwest through the day tomorrow, and arrive by late in the day. As it advances eastward, and then lingers over Washington on Friday, a steady onshore flow should bring a few clouds to the higher terrain inland from Santa Barbara, and a refreshingly cool flow to town.

Temperatures are dropping much faster than guidance had indicated. My forecast reflects an anticipation of that trend continuing. A look at the satellite shows the entire lack of clouds.
