Colder, Showery Sunday

The unstable atmosphere today will lead to rounds of showers and perhaps an isolated thunderstorm. Cold, northwesterly winds will also gust at times. Then, high pressure builds in with dryer weather for the rest of the week. The air mass will initially be cool, but we could see some 70s as early as Wednesday inland!


Sunday: Partly cloudy with rounds of showers and perhaps an isolated thunderstorm. Small hail possible. Cold, gusty northwesterly winds. Highs in the low to mid 50s for most areas with 40s up in the hills.

Overnight: Partial clearing with fog possible in low areas. Breezy northwest winds on the coast and in the hills. Chilly, with lows in the 30s-40s.

Monday: Chilly in the morning with patchy fog. Then, becoming mostly sunny but cool with highs in the 50s. Breezy at times.

Extended: Tuesday morning will be the coldest of the week with frosty conditions inland and perhaps some patchy frost in coastal cities. Temperatures (both lows and highs) will slowly warm through the end of the week under mostly sunny skies. The next weather system approaches late Saturday.
