WEATHER STORY
Eyes are on a weak weather system making an approach on our area from the northwest. Light rain is possible overnight into Friday, mainly for coastal spots. In general, rain chances are quite low and we will likely avoid any major impacts. Beyond that, warm and dry conditions expected this weekend with a seasonable to slightly cool run up to Thanksgiving. We’re watching a weak system on Tuesday, but impacts look minimal. There is a chance of wet weather the weekend following Turkey day too, but a lot can change before then.

Overnight: Expect a mix of low and high clouds near the coast with an isolated rain shower possible. Inland areas will see scattered high clouds with a few sprinkles possible. Expect lows in the upper 40s to around 50ºF on the coast with upper 30s to 40s inland. Viewing of the partial lunar eclipse which will peak just after 1AM will be difficult at best due to the clouds.

Friday: Mostly cloudy early with the chance for a light shower for areas near the coast. A few sprinkles will be possible inland. Decreasing clouds late. Breezy for the valleys in the afternoon/evening. Cool again with highs in the upper 50s to 60s on the coast and mainly 60s inland.

Saturday: Morning fog, then becoming mostly sunny with light offshore winds mainly over the hills. Warmer, with highs in the 60s to low 70s.
 
Extended: Temperatures warm this weekend under mostly sunny skies. Light offshore winds expected in the hills Saturday into early Sunday. Some cooling early next week as a weather system passes by on Tuesday followed by a cooler air mass.
