Beginning To Cool Down

High pressure will move to the east on Thursday, allowing for a cut off low that has been sitting off the coast of Baja to begin its journey north. Temperatures will decrease a bit as the air mass cool and onshore flow strengthens. Still, it will be hot inland and warm on the coast. Much more significant cooling is likely on Friday as the low passes over. It will also generate some cloudcover and a tiny chance of a few rain drops--most likely in the form of coastal/mountain drizzle. Cooler, breezy conditions will ensue out of the weekend before a significant warmup mid-week.

Overnight: Mostly clear and mild, with lows in the mid 50s for most areas, but 60s up in the hills.

Thursday: Mostly sunny skies with a few low clouds possible on the coast late in the day. Cooler, with a stronger sea breeze. Expect coastal highs in the mid 60s to low 80s--warmest on the north side of the bay-- and mid 80s to around 100ºF inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the late afternoon/early evening.

Friday: Partly cloudy and cooler on Friday with coastal highs in the 60s to low 70s and 70s to low 80s inland. Clouds thicken late with a few sprinkles possible. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Extended: Morning low clouds and drizzle possible on Saturday with clearing and warmer temperatures by afternoon. Northwesterly onshore winds will pick up and continue into early next week, keeping the area seasonably cool. High pressure nudges back in by mid-week with much warmer weather expected.
