ZACH WEATHER

Don’t expect a lot of change for coastal areas in the coming days. We will continue to see slightly cool temperatures and coastal clouds into next week with only periodic sunshine. Inland areas will struggle to reach seasonal highs as the marine layer will be just deep enough to keep cooler than normal air in the more populated valleys. Some warming possible toward the end of next week as high pressure strengthens off to our east.

Overnight: Widespread low clouds for the coast and inland valleys. Some drizzle possible. Coastal lows in the mid-50s with mid-40s to mid-50s inland.

Saturday: Patchy low clouds lingering on the coast during the afternoon, otherwise sunny. Coastal highs in the mid-60s to around 70ºF with mid-70s to low 90s inland. Breezy for the inland valleys in the afternoon and early evening.
 
Extended: We will continue to see the daily cycle of low clouds on the coast and seasonal to slightly cool temperatures through the weekend both inland and on the coast. Some warming possible by mid to late next week.
