Wednesday: Mostly sunny with just a few high clouds passing through. Another warm day with coastal highs in the upper 60s to low 70s and 60s to low 70s inland. High clouds increase from the south late.

Overnight: A more substantial wave of high clouds arrives after dark and will stick around through late morning on Thursday. Not quite as cool, with regional low temperatures mostly in the 40s; a few high 30s possible for inland spots.

Thursday: Scattered high clouds, especially in the south. Slightly cooler, but still warm for this time of year with highs in the 60s to around 70ºF. Breezy northwesterly winds in the hills during the afternoon and evening.

Extended: Warmer-than-normal temperatures will continue through the weekend with dry conditions prevailing. Sub-tropical moisture streaming in from the south will continue on Friday and perhaps Saturday, but rain is unlikely.
