Warmer For Now

High pressure will be at its max over the next two days with the warmest temperature expected for our area. Then, a trough will dig down the coast, bringing cooler, windier conditions and even bringing a few showers by Saturday. The system doesn’t have a lot of moisture, but it does have cold, unstable conditions. This should be enough for scattered showers and perhaps a thunder or hail shower. Cooler air will linger through Sunday before warming back up Monday, but it looks like we’ll be in for a bit of a temperatures roller coaster next week.

Good to Moderate

Overnight: Clear and cool with coastal lows in the mid 30s to low 40s and upper 20s to 30s inland.  

Wednesday: Mostly sunny with just a few high clouds passing through. Warmer with highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s on the coast and 60s inland.

Thursday: Warmer yet with highs in the 60s to low 70s. Mostly sunny.

Extended: Temperatures will drop quite a bit on Friday as the trough digs in. Northwesterly winds will pick up as well. Showers will follow on Saturday with highs well below normal.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 44ºF
HIGH: 62ºF

LOW: 39ºF
HIGH: 63ºF
