Taste of Fall

Quiet weather for the weekend with cooler air moving into the central coast. For 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. High temps will drop 3-5 degrees each day over the weekend and getting even cooler next week. A couple inland spots may be as cool as 20 degrees below average 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: Low clouds will start to push inland by early evening, becoming widespread overnight with drizzle possible around the coast. Mostly cloudy, and patchy fog possible by morning. Lows will be mild, in the mid to upper 50s to low 60s.

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 with afternoon clearing with sun.

Sunday: Morning clouds and fog coastal and in the valleys then afternoon sunshine with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s. A cool down will begin inland with sunshine but temps will drop a bit and stay below normal for most of next week.

Extended: Cooler than normal high temperatures can be expected into next week with widespread low clouds and fog for the overnights and mornings. Temps will cool each day by 3-5 degrees with some areas being 5-15 degrees below normal next week. Quiet weather but cool.

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.
