Warm, Dry Into The Weekend

The area of low pressure that send a wet frontal system through the area this weekend and then threw showers at us for the last few days has finally departed the region. In its wake, high pressure will slowly build back in. The air will slowly dry out and warm up which will mean slowly warming afternoons but a couple of cool nights in the meantime. Some fog may stick around moist areas, but generally, not much cloudcover outside of a few coastal clouds here or there are expected into the weekend. High pressure will weaken slightly by mid-week next week, ending the warming trend.  

AIR QUALITY: GOOD


Saturday: Mostly sunny and warmer yet with coastal highs mainly in the 70s and mainly 80s to low 90s inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon & evening.  

Overnight: Mostly clear with some low cloudcover/fog possible on the coast. Lows in the 50s on the coast with 40s-50s inland.

Extended: Expect highs to be 3-5ºF above normal for the weekend under mostly sunny skies. Inland areas will remain warm into next week with slight coastal cooling.
