Warm Inland; Coastal Clouds

The weather pattern will be somewhat blocked for the next few days with a ridge nudging in from the south and two areas of low pressure to our northwest and northeast. As the ridge builds a bit, inland temperatures will head up a few more degrees. At the coast, however, the stabilized marine layer may be more inclined to hold clouds and prevent warming. It looks like a weak but dry disturbance will arrive this weekend which could cool things down a bit.

AIR QUALITY: GOOD to MODERATE

Overnight: Low clouds return to the coast and inland valleys. Patchy fog. Expect lows in the mid 50s on the coast with upper 40s to mid 50s inland.

Wednesday: Patchy low clouds in the morning, then mostly sunny in the afternoon with a few low clouds possible on the south side of the bay. Warmer, with coastal highs in the upper 60s to upper 70s—warmest on the north side of the bay—and upper 70s to mid 90s inland. Becoming windy for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Thursday:  Low clouds in the morning, becoming mostly sunny in the afternoon with a few low clouds on the south side of the bay. Seasonable to slightly cool on the coast with highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s, slightly warm inland with mid 70s to low 90s. Windy for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Extended: The pattern will persist through Friday when inland highs will likely peak. Cooler overall temperatures can be expected this weekend under partly cloudy skies.
