Cool Wednesday, Warming Up Tomorrow

WEATHER STORY
Much warmer weather is on the way!
The broad trough of low pressure that brought unsettled, winter-like weather to the region will depart tonight. Temperatures will remain chilly for the next day or two, but will warm rapidly as we head into the weekend. In fact, highs return to normal by Friday and should be well above by Saturday! We’ll cool a touch out of the weekend, but it looks like temps will head back upward into mid-week.

AIR QUALITY: GOOD

Wednesday: Mostly clear with a few puffy cumulus clouds over the hills. Cool & windy with highs in the upper 50s to mid 50s on the coast and mainly 60s to around 70ºF inland.

Overnight: A few low clouds around the peninsula, otherwise mostly clear and still a bit chilly with lows in the mid to upper 30s inland, low 40s at the coast.
