Overnight: Low clouds for the coast and inland valleys. Fog and drizzle possible. Lows in the 50s for most areas with a few upper 40s in the southern valleys.

Sunday: Patchy low clouds expected around the coast. Inland areas will become mostly sunny. Highs in the 60s for the coast, 70s inland and a few 80s.
