Local Forecast

Slight Warm-Up

High pressure will nudge back in from the east in the coming days. This will compress the marine layer and allow for warming in most areas. Surface flow will remain onshore, so a few low clouds and afternoon breezes will remain likely. A weather system will slide by to the north this weekend, with cooler weather following it next week.

Overnight
: Low clouds fill the coast and inland valleys. Some fog is possible. Expect coastal lows in the low 50s with mid 40s to low 50s for most inland valleys and low to mid to upper 50s up in the hills.

Thursday: Mostly sunny and warmer with coastal highs in the mid-60s to upper 70s and 80s to low 100s inland. Breezy for the inland valleys in the afternoon, then, dry northerly winds over the hills in the evening.

Friday: Mostly sunny with a few low clouds near the coast and a few high clouds passing through. A touch cooler on the coast with highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s and a touch warmer inland with upper 70s to around 102ºF.
 
Extended: Inland temperatures will continue to rise through Sunday, but coastal areas will remain seasonable with patchy low clouds and a steady breeze off the ocean. The marine layer will deepen starting Monday, with increased coastal clouds and inland cooling through mid-week.
