Tuesday Cool-Down

AIR QUALITY:
GOOD to MODERATE for all reporting stations.

WEATHER STORY
The warmer weather we’ve been experiencing will be broken on Tuesday as a weak system passes through. That system will bring a few clouds, but that’s about it. Offshore winds behind it will bring more dry air which will result in mostly sunny skies, warm days and chilly nights into the weekend. No major travel hazards expected across the state in the coming week.


Overnight:
 Mostly clear with only a few high clouds possible. Light offshore/drainage winds for most areas. Expect lows in the low 40s to low 50s on the coast with upper 20s to low 40s inland.

Tuesday: A weak cold front will move through around mid-day bringing some clouds and cooler temperatures. Expect coastal highs in the 60s to around 70ºF—warmest on the north side of the bay--with 60s to low 70s inland. Breezy at times. Northerly winds picking up over the hills late.

Wednesday: Offshore winds may be as strong as 20-30mph over the hills overnight, then will slowly ease during the day. After a cool morning, expect a mild afternoon under mostly sunny skies.

Extended:  Mornings will be chilly for the rest of the week with Thursday morning the coldest for most areas. Patchy frost will be possible for inland valleys really through the weekend, but will be more likely in southern valleys. Highs are expected to be at or above normal for the next 6 days or so. No rain in the forecast.
