Cold Nights, Nice Days

Air Quality Report (As of 6:30pm)
All reporting stations are good.

Expect mild afternoons and chilly nights for the next few days as high pressure remains in control of our weather. With the dry air mass in place, there won’t be much moisture for insulation and thus, temperatures will be cold in the mornings as we head into the weekend. Some moderation can be expected with increased clouds by Sunday/Monday. Rain chances are looking slim to none in the short term.

Friday: Sunny and a little warmer with highs in the 60s for almost all areas.

Overnight: Clear and chilly once again. Frosty inland with patchy frost even close to the coast. Temperatures will be in the 20s-30s inland with most coastal spots in the 30s.

Saturday: After a similarly cold morning, sunny and a touch warmer yet during the afternoon with highs in the 60s to around 70ºF.

Extended: A weather system will pass by Sunday-Monday, reverting the flow back onshore and introducing some clouds to the region. Coastal lows will increase slightly and highs decrease slightly without too much change inland. We’ll see another bout of light offshore flow Tuesday/Wednesday with another system passing by to our north later in the week.


This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 44ºF
HIGH: 62ºF

LOW: 38ºF
HIGH: 65ºF
