Warmest Day of the Week, But After Thursday a Cool Down Begins

Temperatures will likely peak on Thursday with mild and dry offshore flow dominating our weather. Surface winds will switch back onshore later in the day Thursday and by Friday, we may actually see the return of some low, foggy clouds. The overall weather pattern will adjust into the weekend as a trough digs down the West Coast. Eventually, a weather system will slide south toward the Central Coast, likely to bring some light rain to the region Sunday into Monday. Additional rainfall will be possible later next week but timing and intensity are hard to pin down at this point.

Good to Moderate

Thursday: Warmer, with light offshore breezes early in the day. Highs in the 60s to around 70ºF. A sea breeze will kick in later in the afternoon.

Overnight: Mostly clear, with a light breeze and cool temps. Lows mainly in the upper 30s to low 40s, a few mid-40s at the coast. Sheltered valleys low 30s with a chance of frost by morning.

Friday: A few low clouds on the coast, otherwise sunny. Cooler, with coastal highs in the upper 50s to low 60s and mainly 60s inland.

The cooling trend will then continue into the weekend. Clouds increase late Saturday with rain possible Sunday & Monday, though it looks light. Winds will likely pick up as well, but nothing extreme is expected. Additional rainfall is possible later next week.
