Warm Friday, cooler this weekend

Friday stands to be the warmest day of the week, as a strong ridge of high pressure moves overhead. The crest of the ridge will drift east this weekend, allowing for cooler, deeper onshore flow.

Another ridge will rebuild next week, which could send temperatures a few degrees warmer than what we saw this week.

Outside of occasional Dry weather (outside of any coastal drizzle) is expected to continue for the next 10+ days.

Friday:
Sunny and even warmer with breezy onshore winds in the afternoonCoastal highs in the mid-60s to upper 70s with widespread 80s to around 90ºF inland.

Friday night: Coastal low clouds will return and move locally into the valleys. Lows mostly in the 50s. Breezy conditions on the exposed coast and up over the ridge tops.

Saturday: A bit cooler and cloudier on the coast with the return of morning/evening low clouds. Highs in the 60s and 70s. Inland areas will remain sunny and warm with widespread 80s. Some inland valley fog possible in the mornings, however. North-northwesterly onshore winds pick up on the afternoon.

Extended: 
Expect further cooling on Sunday with morning/evening low clouds on the coast. The trend will begin to reverse on Monday with sunnier, warmer conditions. Tuesday/Wednesday will likely be the warmest days of next week and will rival, if not surpass the warm highs from this week.


The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for May 1st – 7th calls for the likelihood of ABOVE normal temperatures and BELOW normal precipitation.
