Slightly Warmer Tuesday, With a Few High Clouds

High pressure builds in for most of the work week. The initially cool air mass will slowly warm, with temperatures peaking on Thursday. Then, a trough of low pressure will dig down the coast. Temperatures will cool initially and then as the cold core moves over late Friday into Saturday, we’ll likely see some showers in the region. Rainfall amounts should remain light.

AIR QUALITY:
Good to Moderate

Tuesday: Mostly sunny with increasing high clouds later in the day. Slightly warmer with highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s.

Overnight: Mostly clear skies, winds calm. Another round of cool lows, though slightly warmer from previous mornings, with 30s and low 40s. Patchy frost for interior valleys.

Wednesday: Mostly clear and cool in the morning, then mostly sunny and warmer in the afternoon with widespread 60s for highs. Some inland sites may approach 70ºF.

Extended: Temperatures peak on Thursday roughly 4-7ºF above normal, then begin to cool with increasing clouds and winds Friday. Showers will be possible on Saturday as a weather system passes by .
