Mild Start- Warmer End of the Week


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 the week as high pressure strengthens off to our east.

Monday: Patchy low clouds on the coast and sunny inland. Highs on the coast will be in the 60s to low 70s with inland spots in the upper 70s to mid 90s. Gusty at times.

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

Tuesday: Slightly warmer for inland areas, with little change near the coast. Highs on the coast will be in the 60s to low 70s with inland spots in the upper 70s to low 100s.

Extended: Temperatures slowly warm up as high pressure builds in. Cross your fingers, we may see some sunshine on the coastline by the end of the week!
