In the image below note the North Pacific centered off the Oregon, USA coast and extending into Baja waters. Also, notice how its winds are far from us.

Meanwhile, Great Basin high pressure is centered over Columbia River Basin in the USA.

Both are making lots of wind but that wind is about 1000 miles from La Ventana UNTIL Wednesday and Thursday when those wind machines return to a more favorable location.

This leaves us with local sea breezes but with more blue sky and better coastal valley heating those winds hit the mid teens and may even touch upper-teens for La Ventana.

Hedge: Long streamers of scattered clouds are moving across us from the SW. The forecast hinges on the coastal valleys staying clear.
