It’s Summer; What Did You Expect?

A summer-like weather pattern will continue through the rest of the week. High pressure is anchored offshore with a big dome of hot air across the entire state. Heat Alerts are in place for the entire Central Valley as the region deals with highs in the triple digits. Some of that heat will be felt in our far-inland valleys and up in the mountains, but the air conditioning will remain turned on for coastal areas. After some wavering, the ridge will strengthen and bulge east on Friday, compressing the marine layer and likely leading to the warmest temperatures of the week for most coastal and inland locations. Then, a trough will dig down the coast this weekend and bring significant cooling to inland areas especially.

Overnight:
 Low clouds fill the coast and major inland valleys. Patchy fog possible in the coastal hills. A few spritzes of drizzle possible as well. Expect lows in the low 50s on the coast, upper 40s to low 50s for inland valleys and mid 50s to 60ºF up in the hills.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy on the coast with low clouds more likely on the south/east sides of the bay. Some high cloudcover will drift in from the south early in the day. Expect coastal highs in the 60s to around 70ºF with upper 70s to around 104ºF inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Thursday: Partly cloudy on the coast with low clouds more likely on the south/east sides of the bay. Some high cloudcover will drift in from the south early in the day. Expect coastal highs in the 60s to around 70ºF with upper 70s to around 101ºF inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Extended: Some warming expected on the coast and inland on Friday as the marine layer compresses. While coastal areas will likely remain between 65ºF-79ºF, inland areas will range from the low 80s to around 105ºF. Some cooling expected on Saturday as a trough digs in from the north and much cooler air will arrive Sunday. Some warming expected by mid-week next week.
