Warmin’ On Up

Air Quality (as of 8AM):
Good for all reporting areas.

Weather Story: High pressure will build in from the west, ushering in a period of dry, warmer weather. The tranquility will be broken briefly on Monday as a weak weather system blusters through, but a cool-down, gusty winds, and a few extra clouds are all that are expected. Behind Monday’s system, an even stronger ridge of high pressure builds in, bringing some of the warmest air of the year so far.

 
Friday: Sunny and much warmer with highs in the 60s to low 70s. Breezy offshore winds over the hills at times and brief gusts for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Overnight: Mostly clear. Expect coastal lows in the upper 30s to low 40s with mainly 30s inland.

Saturday: Sunny and warmer yet with highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s on the coast and widespread 70s inland. Briefly breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon.
 
Extended: Onshore flow will be a little stronger on Sunday which will cool coastal areas a few degrees, while inland areas warm a degree or two more over Saturday’s readings. A weather system will push a cold front through the region Monday with a 5-10ºF cooldown and gusty winds. We’ll also see a few passing clouds. A stronger ridge of high pressure should build in for most of next week with even warmer air—highs in the 70s to 80s possible.
