A dry and mild start to May

Mild and pleasant weather will continue into the weekend. Onshore winds will usher in cooler marine air, cooling our daytime highs.

Low clouds will develop and push into coastal valleys nights and mornings. A weak weather system passing by late Saturday and Sunday may produce a bit of drizzle.

High pressure will strengthen from the south next week, leading to a significant warm-up, especially for inland areas.

A few passing high clouds, otherwise sunny. Coastal highs in the mid-60s to low 70s and mid-70s to low 80s inland. Becoming breezy in the afternoon. Low clouds return to the coast late.

Friday night: Low clouds along the coast and into the coastal valleys. Lows in the upper 40s and low 50s.

Saturday: Patchy low clouds at the coast, otherwise mostly sunny with occasional passing high clouds. Expect coastal highs in the low to low 70s, with 70s to around 80ºF inland. Breezy in the afternoon for the exposed coast and larger inland valleys. Low clouds increase late with some light drizzle possible.

Extended: High temperatures will be the coolest on Sunday under partly cloudy skies, then gradually climb through mid-week with most areas seeing above normal readings by then. No rain expected in the next 7-10 days. 

The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for May 8th-14th calls for the likelihood of ABOVE normal temperatures and near normal precipitation.
