Coastal Cloudtember Continues

Temperatures haven’t changed much over the last couple of days and they’re not going to change much in the next couple. Most coastal and lower elevation inland areas will see another day of below normal highs on Friday, though some of the higher elevation locations may warm a degree or two. By the weekend, temps may ease up on the coast a bit with a few breaks in the clouds, but an incoming trough/upper level low will keep inland areas well below normal through much of next week. This is all part of a blocked weather pattern which will keep deep onshore flow directed at us for at least the next six days.


Overnight: Widespread low clouds for the coast and inland valleys with patchy drizzle around the bay and patchy fog in the coastal hills. Expect lows in the 50s for most areas with a few 40s for higher inland valleys.

Friday: Mostly cloudy on the coast with a few breaks in the clouds during the afternoon. Cool on the coast with highs in the 60s and low 70s to mid 90s inland. Windy for inland valleys late in the day.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy on the coast with a few breaks in the clouds during the afternoon—maybe just a touch more sunshine than previous day. Slightly warmer on the coast with highs in the low 60s to low 70s and low 70s to low 90s inland. Windy for inland valleys late in the day.

Extended: Cooler than normal high temperatures can be expected into next week with widespread low clouds for the overnights and mornings. We’ll see some high clouds at times next week, but at the moment, no precipitation other than coastal drizzle is expected.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 54ºF
HIGH: 70ºF

LOW: 51ºF
HIGH: 85ºF

-The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for September 22nd – 28th calls for the likelihood of BELOW normal temperatures and ABOVE normal precipitation. Note: Little to no precipitation typically falls this time of year.

- ENSO (El Niño/La Niña) STATUS: 
El Niño Advisory
- Forecast: Strong to Very Strong El Niño expected this winter.
-Area drought status: Currently drought-free
