Coolin’ Back Down

The strong ridge of high pressure that brought heat to inland areas this weekend will weaken into the early workweek. As a result, inland areas will cool down quite a bit. At the coast, lack of high pressure will mean a deeper marine layer, also cooling things down and making room for more persistent low cloudcover. After a cooler couple of days, some warming expected later in the week. Warmer morning lows may be even more noticeable.

Rest of Sunday:
Mostly sunny with a few low clouds near the coast, especially as we head into the evening hours. Clouds will be quite low to the ground, so fog will be possible. 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.

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.

Monday: Cooler for all areas with low clouds lingering on the coast throughout the day. Some breaks of sun for coastal cities, but more clouds than sun expected. Inland areas will also be cooler with the sea breeze reaching most inland valleys by afternoon. The breeze could get gusty at times! Expect coastal highs in the 60s with mid 70s to mid 90s inland.
Temperatures will remain cool on Tuesday with low clouds in place. Southerly flow will then take over mid-week. This will do a few things: keep some low clouds on the coast, especially on the north side of the bay, keep temperatures seasonable—both on the coast and inland, but low temperatures will warm with a slightly muggier air mass in place. We’ll also have some high clouds streaming through occasionally which will likely lead to pretty sunrises/sunsets. As usual, expect winds in the valleys during the afternoons.
