Marine Layer Peekaboo

Air quality updates will return when needed. Outside of fire or winter inversion seasons, our air quality is *rarely* anything but good to moderate.

Weather Story:
 Weak high pressure nudges in from the south in the coming days, but we will remain in northwesterly onshore flow.  This will mean coastal areas will remain cool and partly cloudy through the weekend while inland areas will be mild and mostly sunny through the period. This difference should enhance our afternoon breezes for the inland valleys, summer-style. Another weak system approaches next weekend, but things are looking quite dry for the next week or two.

Overnight: Low clouds for the coast and inland valleys. Expect lows in the 40s for most areas with 30s in the higher/exposed inland valleys.

Tuesday: Low clouds in the morning with passing high clouds in the afternoon. Slightly warmer with coastal highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s and mid 60s to mid 70s inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon.  

Wednesday: Low clouds in the morning with passing high clouds in the afternoon. Slightly warmer with coastal highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s and mid 60s to upper 70s inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon, then winds picking up on the coast late.

Extended: Coastal temperatures will remain slightly cool all week with morning and evening low clouds and occasional passing high clouds. Inland areas can expect seasonable temperatures with some low clouds/fog possible in the lower valleys in the mornings, then mostly sunny afternoons. Expect stronger onshore winds later in the week.
