It's been a week since the last mid latitude rain producing system. No prog of anything within the 7 - 10 day forecast window. It we get to 3 weeks with no systems I think it would be safe to declare the rainy season over.

TEMPERATURES WILL DROP TO BELOW NORMAL AS A RATHER CHILLY AIRMASS MOVES OVERHEAD. THE 00Z MODELS SHOW THAT THE AIRMASS COULD BE AS MUCH AS 2-4 STANDARD DEVIATIONS BELOW NORMAL. SOMEWHAT IMPRESSIVE FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. THAT BEING SAID...A SLIGHT COOL DOWN TOMORROW THEN MUCH COOLER TEMPERATURES FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES OVER THE WEEKEND COULD BE AS MUCH AS 5 TO 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL.

================================================== ==========

The nearly as cold as but drier than last year pattern continues.

LONG TERM(SUNDAY-WEDNESDAY)...NOT MUCH OF A WARM UP IS EXPECTED THROUGH THE LONG TERM. SUNDAY AND MONDAY...THE UPPER LOW OFF THE COAST WILL CONTINUE ITS SLOW PROGRESSION EASTWARD. INTERESTING TO NOTE THOUGH...THE 12Z EURO AND GEM MODEL BRUSH THE N BAY WITH LIGHT QPF MONDAY EVENING. FOR NOW...WILL KEEP FORECAST DRY AS BULK OF MOISTURE SHOULD REMAIN N OF CWA. IF THIS TREND CONTINUES MAY HAVE TO ADD LOW POPS NORTH BAY MONDAY EVENING.

================================

Interesting.

Sit rep from Central San Mateo County. cold low temp this AM, upper 40s. At that point sky was clear. Just after dawn, mid and low level clouds piled in from the West. As I left for work (from the hills) we had borderline drizzle / light rain. As I drove to work it was just cracking 50. Now, here in the flatlands, it's started to drizzle and still in the low 50s.

It just takes longer for them to ripen and what is more important is having hot days during the end of summer when they are laid out to dry for raisin production. In California the variety "Thompson's Seedless" is the dominant raisin grape, and is likely to be the green grapes you see in the grocers.

Most people like sweet Apricots. They need warmer weather earlier in the season. They tend to ripen at the end of May and early June. That isn't going to happen this year and they are going to be a little tart, which I'm OK with because that is my preference in fruit. The peaches will be ok, but will take longer to ripen. In Kings, Tulare and Kern Counties there are a lot of crops that are grown there that require hotter weather. Corn, cantelopes and watermelons are among them. Without hot weather watermelons end up tasting like water.
Sorry, going to have to disagree. Grew up in Portland, OR area and many of the produce that you state needs hot weather to ripen, especially corn, "Thompson's Seedless," cantelopes, and water melons, do just fine and taste awesome grown up in the much cooler PNW. My father grew those and many more every year and we did all our shopping at local markets and co-ops that only carried local food, and it tasted awesome! In fact, I've really stopped eating a lot of fruit/veggies since moving down to California, (I know, it's not healthy, but they just don't taste right and has very little of the flavor I remember from living in Portland). We (my husband and I) have had gardens the 18 years living here in California, from Visalia to San Diego, and I will say growing flavorful fruit and veggies is much harder here, especially the years that are hot as the plants seem to stress and not produce well (especially tomatoes), than the bountiful, great tasting produce I received from our wonderful gardens up in Oregon.

Update:

=======================

ANOTHER WELL-BELOW-NORMAL DAY IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE DISTRICT WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES FORECAST FROM THE MID TO UPPER 50S AT THE COAST TO THE 60S AND 70S INLAND TODAY. A SHORT-WAVE TROUGH PROGGED TO MOVE ACROSS NORTHERN CALIFORNIA LATE TODAY WILL BRING RAIN CHANCES AS FAR SOUTH AS THE NORTH BAY BY THIS AFTERNOON...AND EVEN ACROSS THE GREATER SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA THIS EVENING. RAINFALL AMOUNTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE LIGHT - A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH AT MOST. THIS SHORTWAVE WILL MOVE EAST BY SATURDAY...BUT A LONG-WAVE UPPER TROUGH IS FORECAST TO REMAIN OFF THE WEST COAST THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND EVEN EARLY NEXT WEEK. THIS WILL KEEP THE ONSHORE FLOW AND DEEP MARINE LAYER INTACT THROUGH THIS TIME FRAME WITH BELOW NORMAL HIGH TEMPERATURES AS WELL.

=================================

We seem to be experiencing a "mini me" of last "Summer."
