Cool & Breezy

Air Quality (as of 6:30PM):
Good for all reporting stations.


Weather Story: Dry air will follow Monday’s cold front, slowly clearing out the clouds and drizzle overnight. Northwesterly winds may be briefly gusty at times into the day Tuesday. Weak high pressure will then build in, ushering in a dryer period of weather for most of the week. Highs will get a big higher and lows quite a bit lower during the period. The next weather system will arrive on Friday and it may bring additional light rain to the region.

Overnight: Partly cloudy with few low clouds hugging the coastal mountains—where some drizzle will remain possible. Some low cloudcover/fog possible for inland valleys as well. Expect lows in the 40s for most areas with a few southern valleys dipping into the upper 30s.  

Tuesday: Partly cloudy and cool with highs in the 50s for most areas. A few southern valleys may reach the low 60s. Gusty northwest winds at times, especially on the coast.

Wednesday: Chilly in the morning, then mostly sunny and warmer with highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s. Breezy northwest winds at times.

Extended: Clouds will be on the increase Thursday, but the day will be otherwise nice. A weather system will bring some light rain to the region Friday, followed by cool, breezy conditions into the weekend. Temperatures should warm out of the weekend, however, returning to above normal by Sunday or Monday.
