The Dog Days Of Summer (Dog = Cloudy)

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

WEATHER STORY
As the historic ridge of high pressure to our north continues to move farther away, the weather will become more seasonable locally. Northwesterly onshore flow will support a stable marine layer for the next week or so, keeping temperatures about where they should be for this time of year. Some warming can be expected by the weekend and into next week for inland areas.


FORECAST

Thursday: Becoming partly cloudy on the coast in the afternoon with low clouds focused on the south/east sides of the bay. Sunny for other areas. Expect coastal highs in the mid 60s to low 70s—warmest on the north side of the bay—and a range inland from mid 70s to mid 90s. Gusty winds possible as the sea breeze reaches inland valleys.

Overnight: Widespread low clouds with fog and drizzle possible. Expect lows in the 50s for most areas.

Friday: Very similar to Thursday--becoming partly cloudy on the coast in the afternoon with low clouds focused on the south/east sides of the bay. Sunny for other areas. Expect coastal highs in the mid 60s to low 70s—warmest on the north side of the bay—and a range inland from mid 70s to mid 90s. Gusty winds possible as the sea breeze reaches inland valleys.

Extended: Seasonable to slightly cool high temperatures can be expected through the Fourth of July. Expect morning low clouds on the coast with partly cloudy conditions in the afternoon. It will be windy for inland valleys in the afternoons. Inland areas will slowly warm up through the weekend into next week
