WEATHER STORY

High pressure will rule the weather on the West Coast for the next week or two! General offshore flow will persist day to day keeping temperatures seasonable to slightly warm for this time of year. Offshore winds could get gusty in the hills on Friday especially. Rain will remain a memory until the ridge breaks down, but that may be two weeks away.

Air Quality: GOOD to MODERATE.


Overnight: Patchy low clouds/fog around the south side of the bay and possible in sheltered areas early. Then, clearing toward dawn. Lows in the low to mid 40s on the coast, 30s to low 40s inland. Breezy northeasterly winds over the hills.  
Thursday: Sunny and warmer with highs in the 60s to low 70s. Winds pick up over the hills again late.

Friday: Northeasterly winds could be gusty at times over the hills. Otherwise, sunny and dry with offshore breezes to the coast. Expect highs in the 60s to low 70s.
 
Extended: Sunny to mostly sunny with seasonable to slightly warm highs through the weekend. Some cooling early next week with the influx of a few clouds. Otherwise, tranquil and dry.
