A Little Cooler, A Little Cloudier

Weak troughing and the passing of a dry cold front will reinforce a deeper marine layer over the next couple of days. Cooler than normal temperatures can be expected during the period along with occasionally gusty winds. High pressure will then build into our north by the end of the week, but we’ll warm up into the weekend along with it.


Tuesday: Cooler and a bit cloudier with low clouds hanging around on the south side of the bay during the afternoon. Coastal highs in the low 60s to low 70s—warmest on the north side of the bay and low 70s to upper 80s inland. Breezy westerly onshore winds becoming gusty for the valleys later in the day.

Overnight: Low clouds will fill back into the north side of the bay before sunset, moving into nearby valleys overnight. Mostly cloudy by morning, with a chance of patchy drizzle. Lows will be in the mid to upper 50s. Sheltered valleys will be a touch cooler in the upper 40s.

Wednesday: Remaining partly cloudy on the coast and becoming mostly sunny inland. Highs in the 60s to low 70s on the coast and mainly 70s-80s inland. Breezy westerly onshore winds becoming gusty for the valleys later in the day.

Extended: Temperatures will slowly warm into the weekend with decreased cloud cover and then decrease out of the weekend.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 54ºF
HIGH: 70ºF

LOW: 51ºF
HIGH: 85ºF
