Cooling Trend

Northwesterly flow aloft will keep surface flow onshore for the next couple of days. Temperatures will be cooler and we’ll have low clouds in the picture. A weak weather system will ride through on Friday, but it won’t bring any rain. In fact, we’ll see a slight promotion of offshore flow behind it which will warm us up on Saturday. Another system will follow Sunday into Monday. While we will remain dry again with this system, after an initial cool-down, offshore flow will follow again, warming up coastal areas especially early next week.

Overnight:
 Low clouds with patchy fog for the coast and adjacent valleys. Expect coastal lows in the low to mid 40s with 30s inland. Occasionally breezy on the exposed coast.

Thursday: Patchy low clouds along the coast and mostly sunny skies inland. Expect coastal highs in the upper 50s to low 60s with mainly 60s inland.

Valentine’s Day (Friday): A few low clouds near the coast, fading out later in the day. Passing high clouds and slightly warmer with coastal highs in the upper 50s to low 60s and 60s to around 70ºF inland.

Extended: Temperatures will warm further on Saturday under mostly sunny skies. Expect widespread 60s with some low 70s for inland valleys. Onshore winds will strengthen on Sunday, slightly cooling us. We’ll see further cooling on Monday as the weather system passes by, but only a few extra clouds are expected. Winds will then shift offshore next week, warming most areas into the 60s to around 70ºF.


The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for February 20th – 26th calls for the likelihood of ABOVE normal temperatures and BELOW normal precipitation.
