JUNE 2001 Wx REVIEW

An unusually nice June, with some honest heat-wave type stuff from the 13th to the 22nd. Local daily records were broken inland (none mentioned coastside, however). A sudden end came to the heat wave as once again upper level energy dropping down the coast advected cool air eastward to the coast. A low pivoting around the trough brought .07" here on the 25th. Other drizzle and light rain amounted to only .03". June is usually not a wet month - 3yrs out of 5 we get "real" rain (in 1992 we got 1.2") but it almost always happens in the beginning of the month. This June, the last rain for the season was 2-3 weeks late. Mean temp at 58.5F was the second highest (#1 El Nino -'97) in my records. Despite the warm temps, this was not a warm air pattern. Lows dropping down the coast continued as they have for almost 2 years now, and offshore winds in the building high in back of the south digging troughs brought us the warm temps. Look for temps to slide noticably once the troughs stay further north and cool Pacific air start smoving in from the WSW. Noted huge schools of anchovy in the middle-end of the month moving north-south. Stripers started to show during the last week, especially off Ocean Beach (south Fleishakers). Fish seem to be in schools, no bait fishing to speak of or blind casting, either.
