Big Warm Up This Weekend

ZACH WEATHER

A big warm up is coming as we head into Memorial Day Weekend. However, a final push of cold air behind a big weather system to our northeast will actually reverse the warming trend briefly Friday. It will be back this weekend, however, with highs back above normal Saturday and then well above normal both on the coast and inland through Memorial Day. The forecast gets a little more complex mid-week next week, however, as a cut off area of low pressure approaches to the southwest. At the moment, it looks like it will add some clouds to the forecast and cool us down a bit, though southerly flow usually means warmer morning low temperatures. At the moment, no rain is expected, but it is worth watching.


Friday: Mostly sunny and a touch cooler with coastal highs in the 60s to mid 70s and 70s to low 80s inland. Breezy in the afternoon and early evening.

Overnight: Patchy low clouds near the bay. Expect coastal lows in the upper 40s to low 50s with mainly 40s inland.

Saturday: Mostly sunny and warmer—mid-60s to upper 70s on the coast and mid-70s to upper 80s inland.
 
Extended: High temperatures will continue to warm up on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday with well above normal readings expected under mostly sunny skies. Some cooling likely after mid-week as moisture streams in from the south. At the moment, it looks like we’ll only see an increase in clouds, but we’re watching for rain potential as well.
