Short Week, Cool Week

Our pattern will remain somewhat cool for the next several days. An upper level low will sit off to our south on Tuesday, reinforcing the cool weather inland but coastal areas will be mild and partly cloudy with the mixed marine layer. The low will exit on Wednesday though weak troughing to our north and perhaps a new cut-off low to our south will prevent high pressure from building in initially. It will eventually Friday into Saturday which will warm inland areas, but onshore flow may keep the coast seasonably cool.

Regarding rain chances, a few sprinkles may occur with the upper level low overnight into Tuesday, then coastal drizzle will be the best chance for the rest of the week.

Overnight: Mostly cloudy with a few sprinkles possible inland and patchy drizzle on the coast—mainly on the north side of the bay up into the Santa Cruz Mountains. Lows in the 50s for most areas and a few 40s in the southern valleys.

Tuesday: Becoming partly cloudy for most areas in the afternoon. Slightly warmer with coastal highs in the low 60s to upper 60s with mid 60s to mid 70s inland. An isolated shower possible over the inland hills. Light winds early, with gusty southwesterly onshore winds in the afternoon.

Wednesday: The marine layer will stabilize with low clouds remaining more sturdy. This will cool down the coast with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. Inland areas will warm, however, with highs in the mid 60s to upper 70s. Windy northwesterly onshore winds in the afternoon.

 Our cycle of low clouds will continue for coastal areas into next weekend, though the marine layer will slowly compress. Coastal temps remain seasonably cool—mainly in the upper 50s to mid 60s all week, slowly warming to close to normal values by the weekend. Inland areas will warm from the 60s-70s to 70s-80s by the end of the week and above normal temps possible this weekend.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 51ºF
HIGH: 67ºF

LOW: 48ºF
HIGH: 79ºF
