Cooling Into The Weekend

High pressure will move east as we approach the weekend. By Thursday, all areas will be involved in the cooling trend with low clouds present on the coast. Then, a trough of low pressure will dig into the Pacific Coast for the end of the week. It will bring cooler conditions, along with increased clouds, coastal winds, and perhaps some very light precipitation. The pattern will remain progressive, so the trough will move along by early next week...

Overnight: Low clouds/fog on the south/east sides of the bay with patchy low clouds elsewhere on the coast. Expect lows in the 50s for the most part.

Thursday: Low clouds will be more present on the coast, especially on the south side of the bay and all areas will be cooler. Coastal areas will top out in the mid 60s to around 80ºF--warmest in the north--and still quite warm inland with 80s to mid 90s. Breezy at times in the afternoon. Low clouds thicken late with drizzle possible on the coast.

Friday: Mostly cloudy early with patchy drizzle. Then, becoming partly cloudy with isolated showers--most likely over the inland hills. Cooler and breezy at times with highs in the 60s-70s.

Extended: Cool northwesterly winds could get gusty at times on Saturday under partly cloudy skies. Some warming expected Sunday/Monday, especially inland. However, all areas will see seasonable temperatures into early next week.
