Monsoon moisture will begin to stream into the region on Sunday, but it will mostly come in the form of high clouds. Otherwise, the weather will be about the same as what we’ve seen over the past few days. The moisture will be accompanied by some upper level support on Monday which will increase the chance of elevated/high-based showers & thunderstorms—a threat that could continue all the way through Wednesday. Southerly flow will begin to kick in on Tuesday which will likely lead to an all-around warm-up.

Sunday: Scattered low clouds on the coast and scattered high clouds passing through. A few sprinkles at most will be possible. Expect coastal highs in the 60s with highs ranging from the 70s to 90s. Winds pick up for the valleys in the afternoon.

Overnight: Low clouds fill back in around the bay and into inland valleys with patchy fog possible. Expect lows in the 50s for most areas.

Monday: Mostly cloudy with a few low clouds near the coast and widespread high clouds. Isolated elevated/high-based showers and thunderstorms possible, especially late. Highs in the 60s to around 70ºF on the coast and 70s-80s inland.
Extended: Temperatures warm up Tuesday/Wednesday with southerly flow kicking in. We’ll still see a chance of isolated showers/t-storms. We’ll be dry for the rest of the week with a return to the normal low cloud cycle.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 55ºF
HIGH: 69ºF
LOW: 53ºF
HIGH: 86ºF
