Cooler, But Seasonable This Weekend

The ridge that brought warm weather to the region for the end of the week will begin to flatten out into the weekend, returning temperatures back to seasonal norms. A deep trough will begin to dig in across the west early next week. A system sliding through on Monday could bring some rain but it is trending dryer. Rain is looking more likely by the end of the week. All the while, expect much cooler temperatures.

AIR QUALITY: GOOD
TO MODERATE

Saturday: Decreasing clouds. Seasonable, with highs mainly in the 60s and a few spots approaching 70ºF inland.

Overnight: Mostly clear and chilly with lows in the 30s-40s on the coast and 20s-30s inland.

Sunday: Mostly sunny and slightly warmer with highs in the 60s to low 70s.

Extended: A weather system arrives Monday and could bring a few light showers overnight into Tuesday. Widespread rainfall is not expected. Highs cool into the 50s-60s for the first part of the week with cold morning lows. A stronger, wetter system looks more likely in the Thursday-Friday timeframe.
