Weak high pressure builds in behind Friday’s weather system. But, the weather pattern will remain progressive for the next week with a stream of weak systems passing by to our north. This will keep temperatures seasonable with occasional passing clouds. Honestly, it looks pretty nice!  

 Patchy low clouds on the coast, otherwise clear. Fog possible in low areas where winds are calm. Lows in the 50s for most areas with a few higher inland valleys dipping into the 40s. A dry, northerly breeze over the ridgetops.

Saturday: Patchy low clouds along the coast, otherwise sunny. Expect coastal highs in the mid-60s to around 80ºF—warmest on the north side of the bay—with upper 70s to low 90s inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon and dry northerly breezes will continue over the hills. Smoke possible near the Dolan Fire and some smoke drifting in from fires in Northern California

Sunday: Patchy low clouds on the coast and occasional passing high clouds. A bit hazy. Very comfortable again with coastal highs in the mid-60s to upper 70s—warmest on the north side of the bay—and low 80s to mid-90s inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Extended: Seasonable to slightly warm temperatures will continue for most of next week with occasional low and high clouds along with occasional breezy conditions.
