Warm Temps Coming to an End

Air Quality (as of 7:30AM):
Good for all reporting areas.

Weather: Troughing develops over the Pacific as we head into the weekend with a gradual cool down starting on Friday. Temperatures will be back to seasonable by the weekend. The pattern becomes more complex early next week with some potential for rain. We'll continue to track that possibility.

Friday: Could see some low clouds/ fog during the morning hours. Mostly sunny but cooler for both coastal and interior locations. Highs inland in the 70s, and widespread 60s along the coast. A light onshore breezy throughout the day.

Overnight: Widespread low clouds with patchy fog pushes along the and inland valleys. Lows in the 40s for most.

Extended: Temperatures slide downward into the weekend under mostly sunny skies. Some low cloud cover will likely return to the coast. Highs should be close to normal on Easter Sunday. Watching for rain chances early next week, before conditions even out.
