Weekend Heat Inland

A strong ridge of high pressure to our east will dominate our weather this weekend. This hot dome of air will keep inland areas hot and dry and most coastal areas on the warm side. Still, a light onshore wind will keep the immediate coastline comfortable and in some places, a touch cool. A trough will develop along the coast out of the weekend with a cool-down for all areas and increase in coastal clouds. Warming expected toward the end of the week.

Sunday: Mostly sunny with a few low clouds near the coast. Expect coastal highs ranging from the low 60s to the low 80s—warmest on the north side of the bay—and 80s to around 107ºF inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon. Low clouds on the increase late.

Overnight: Low clouds and fog on the coast and nearby valleys. Expect lows in the low to mid 50s on the coast and upper 40s to mid 50s for inland valleys with 60s up in the hills.
 
Extended: Temperatures will begin to cool on Monday and low clouds will be on the increase. By Tuesday, highs will likely be below normal both on the coast and inland—a trend which will last into Wednesday. Some warming expected late in the week. Breezy for inland valleys every afternoon – all – week – long.
