First Week of October Will Feel More Like Summer

After a cool (and rainy) weekend, high pressure begins to build in from the West. In fact, it will dominate our weather for most of the week. Its position to our north by mid-week will encourage offshore flow aloft and even at the surface, the weak flow will have an offshore component. The end result will be much warmer and sunnier weather for the majority of the week. We may see some occasional high clouds and some valley fog, but otherwise, expect a lot of sun. Highs are likely to reach 10ºF above normal for a good stretch of days before a cool down begins on the backside of the weekend.

Good to Moderate

Monday: Becoming mostly sunny with a few low clouds on the coast and a few high clouds passing through. Warmer, with coastal highs in the mid 60s to low 70s and low 70s to low 80s inland. Breezy westerly winds on the coast during the afternoon becoming windy for inland valleys later in the day.

Overnight: A few clouds near the coast, but overall mostly clear conditions. Lows will be cool, with upper 40s to mid 50s. Patchy fog possible by morning.

Tuesday: Sunny and warmer with coastal highs in the upper 60s to upper 70s and upper 70s to upper 80s inland. Windy for inland valleys late in the day.

Extended: Plentiful sunshine for the remainder of the week with highs 10ºF above normal through Saturday. Some valley fog is possible in the mornings. At this time, record highs are not expected.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 52ºF
HIGH: 71ºF

LOW: 48ºF
HIGH: 82ºF
