Tropical Weekend

Heading into the weekend, things will begin to change. Tropical Cyclone Kay will play a role in our weekend forecast by sending clouds our way and perhaps a few showers and thunderstorms Saturday & Sunday. Next week is looking seasonable and much cooler.


Saturday: Partly cloudy with isolated showers and thunderstorms moving in from the east later in the day--more likely in the south. Cooler, with highs in the upper 60s to low 80s on the coast and mainly 80s-90s inland. Storms could have lightning, gusty winds, and brief downpours.

Overnight: Partly cloudy with isolated showers and thunderstorms possible early. Expect lows in the 50s for coastal areas and lower inland valleys with 60s up in the hills.

Extended: The shower/thunderstorm threat will continue on Sunday before clearing up into next week. Temperatures look much closer to normal and night may actually get a bit chilly inland by the end of the week.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 54ºF
HIGH: 72ºF

LOW: 52ºF
HIGH: 86ºF


-The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for September 16th – September 22nd calls for the likelihood of BELOW normal temperatures and near normal* precipitation.

*Note: Little to no precipitation typically falls this time of year.
