February started off normal enough, with days in the mid 70s and nights in the mid 50s, all F. Never mind that these temps are warmer than the ones I recall from 15 years ago, but I digress. On Feb 9, the winds shifted and began blowing from the s/sw and brought warm humid air to our little piece of paradise. Yesterday the winds continued and today, while the winds are barely blowing, the temps have risen again to the low 80s F (same as the last two days) with humidity as high as 80%. 80 and 80, that’s summertime madness happening right now in early February. Overnight lows have been in the mid 60s the last 3 nights. Surfers believe, probably rightly so, that this means a southern swell is on the way, again, another late spring/summer event.
So let’s hope this is a short term blip in our winter (?) weather. It’s way too early for this type of heat and humidity.
