Wednesday Kicks Off the Warm-Up

WEATHER STORY

Offshore flow will be prominent as a ridge of high pressure builds into the region. This will modify the current air mass, drying it out. Expect a steady increase in daytime highs for the next few days, and cooler nights for the next week. The high pressure ridge will block weather systems and keep rain away for the next week (or two!)

Air Quality: GOOD to MODERATE.


Wednesday: Early morning dense fog makes way for a mostly sunny afternoon. Slightly warmer, with highs in the low to mid 60s for most areas. Breezy northeasterly winds over the hills.

Overnight:  Offshore flow keeps the region clear of fog, but temperatures in turn become more chilly. Inland will drop down into the mid to low 30s, with high 30s and low 40s at the coast.

Thursday: Sunny and noticeably warmer, but still breezy in the hills. Expect highs in the 60s to low 70s.
 
Extended: Expect lots of sunshine, cool mornings, and warm afternoons through the weekend. That’s it. That’s the forecast.
