Sunny & Dry For Now

Dry, offshore flow will continue through mid-week. The air mass will slowly warm, but we still have a couple of cold mornings to get through first. By Thursday, high temperatures will peak around 5ºF above normal for this time of year then slowly cool into the weekend. We’re watching a weak system that may bring some light rain Sunday into Monday and mark the begging of a wetter pattern.

AIR QUALITY: Good

Overnight: Mostly clear with a few thin, high clouds passing through. Cool, with lows in the mid 30s to mid 40s on the coast and upper 20s to 30s inland.

Wednesday: Sunny and warmer with coastal highs in the 60s and upper 50s to mid 60s inland. Breezy northeasterly winds over the hills at times.

Thursday: Cool in the morning, then sunny and even warmer in the afternoon with most areas in the 60s to around 70ºF.

Extended:
Temperatures begin to cool on Friday, a trend which will continue through the weekend. Clouds increase late Saturday with rain possible Sunday & Monday, though it looks light. Winds will likely pick up as well, but nothing extreme is expected. Additional rainfall possible later next week.
