Steamy (Not Really) Valentine’s Day

Weak flow aloft will pick up again tomorrow as a weather system approaches from the northwest. Temperatures will slowly warm back up and the marine layer, which deepened on Thursday, will get scoured out leading to the clearing of low clouds. Another weather 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 will redevelop and then thicken around the coast and adjacent valleys. Expect coastal lows in the 40s with 30s to low 40s inland.

Valentine’s Day (Friday): Morning low clouds will clear out by afternoon, leaving only a few high passing clouds in the way of the sun. Temperatures will warm slightly with coastal highs in the upper 50s to low 60s with 60s to around 70ºF inland.

Saturday: Mostly sunny with passing clouds. Warmer, with coastal highs in the 60s and mid 60s to low 70s inland.
 
Extended: 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 with slight warming expected.



 The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for February 21st – 27th calls for the likelihood of ABOVE normal temperatures and BELOW normal precipitation.
