Waking to More Low Clouds, Ending the Weekend with a Little More Sunshine

We start October with a slight cooling trend, which will stick around most of the weekend. The marine layer deepens and onshore flow straightens, keeping low clouds along the coast. Morning drizzle and patchy fog are possible. Inland cities will see more afternoon sunshine.

AIR QUALITY: GOOD

Sunday: Patchy low clouds are expected around the coast, clearing gradually to partly cloudy skies. Inland areas will become mostly sunny. Highs in the 60s for the coast, 70s inland with a few 80s.

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

Monday: Low clouds will once again greet us in the morning, clearing by the afternooon. Inland areas will be mostly sunny, with temperatures warming slightly back into the 80s. Still a few lingering clouds along the coast, with highs in the upper 60s to mid-70s.
 
Extended: Not much change in the weather pattern or temperatures for the early part of the week, but some warming is expected toward the latter as a weak ridge of high pressure begins to nudge in. Other than some morning drizzle near the coast, dry conditions will remain. Winds calm.
