President Drizzle

Air Quality (as of 12:30AM):
Good for all reporting stations.


Weather Story:  A disorganized weather system will impact the area into the day Monday. A moist air mass will be forced ashore overnight keeping the drizzle machine going. It will be followed by a weak cold front in the afternoon on Monday, which will bring additional drizzle to light rain. High pressure will then build in, (slightly) warming us and drying us through mid-week. A weak weather system will clip our area late in the week--looking like Friday/Saturday at the moment--bringing a chance of light rain.

Overnight: Mostly cloudy with patchy drizzle to occasional light rain possible, but mainly in the hills and near the coast. Lows in the 40s for most areas, but a few 30s for southern valleys.

President’s Day (Monday): Mostly cloudy early with patchy drizzle to light rain, especially near the coast and in the hills. Just a touch warmer with highs in the 50s to low 60s. Breezy late in the day.

Tuesday: Becoming mostly sunny. A bit cooler with highs in the 50s to around 60ºF.

Extended: Wednesday morning will be chilly but Wed/Thu afternoons will be slightly warmer. A two-barreled weather system will roll through Friday/Saturday and could bring some light rain to the region.
