Coastal Clouds, Otherwise Nice

Weak high pressure will build in from the southwest for the remainder of the week sustaining slightly warm coastal temps and slightly cool inland temps. Light onshore flow will keep some low clouds in the forecast, especially at night and on the south side of the bay during the day. No rain is in the forecast any time soon.

AIR QUALITY: GOOD



Overnight: Patchy low clouds for the coast and inland valleys. Fog possible. Lows in the 50s for most areas with a few 40s in the southern valleys.

Friday: Another nice day with a few low clouds on the coast and seasonable temperatures both on the coast and inland. Winds pick up for the valleys in the afternoon.
 
Extended: More of the same into the weekend with some warming expected next week. Can’t rule out some coastal clouds, however.
