Sunday Showers

WEATHER STORY

Showers will persist tonight as a weather system moves through the area. The bulk of it will move on overnight, but a few showers may pop up over the hills on Monday. The cool air mass associated with the weather system will keep highs below normal Monday. However, building high pressure will mean a warm-up to above normal levels by the end of the week. Inland areas may be as much as 10-15ºF above normal with widespread 80s by Thursday and Friday, while onshore flow will keep the coast temperate and mainly in the 60s to low 70s.

Overnight: Showers mainly ending by midnight, then partly cloudy with foggy low clouds and patchy drizzle. Lows in the 40s for most areas with a few inland valleys dipping into the upper 30s.

Monday: Partly cloudy with clouds building over the hills in the afternoon. A few showers are possible in the mountains, which may drift south over more populated areas. Continued cool with coastal highs in the upper 50s to low 60s and mainly 60s for inland valleys. Breezy in the late afternoon and early evening, even periodically windy for inland valleys.

Tuesday: Fog and low clouds in the morning for the coast and valleys, then becoming mostly sunny with a few low clouds on the coast. Warmer, with coastal highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s and mid 60s to low 70s inland. Breezy in the afternoon.
 
Extended:
 The warming trend will continue through Thursday/Friday, albeit slower and less exciting on the coast. Still, high temperatures should be above normal for all areas Thursday through Saturday. Expect slight cooling out of the weekend. No additional rain in the forecast.
