Cool But Fair Into The Weekend

Air Quality Report (As of 6:00PM)
All reporting stations are good.

Skies clear tonight in the wake of Tuesday/Wednesday’s storm system. However, high moisture levels will likely lead to valley fog. Weak high pressure will try to build in from the south, which will keep storm systems off to our north for a while. However, northerly surface winds will push some dryer air into the region. While that may cut down on fog, morning lows get colder into the weekend with frost looking likely inland. High temperatures will remain fairly steady during the period

Overnight: Mostly clear with fog developing in valley bottoms and in a patchy sense near the coast. Patchy drizzle also possible. Expect lows in the 40s for most areas.

Thursday: Mostly sunny with a few high clouds passing through. Slightly cool and at times breezy with highs in the upper 50s to upper 60s.

Friday: Northerly winds continue over the hills, with dryer air entering the region. Lows will be cooler than Thursday, though highs will be similar with upper 50s to upper 60s. Breezy at times in the lower elevations during the afternoon.
 
Extended:  Low temperatures continue to fall off into the weekend with mid-30s to low 40s on the coast and upper 20s to mid-30s inland where frost is likely. Afternoons will be cool, but mostly sunny. Some warming expected through mid-week next week under mostly sunny skies. Conditions look to remain dry through the Thanksgiving holiday.
