Weak System Brings a Few More Clouds & Slightly Cooler Temps

We’ll cool down a bit for Monday and Tuesday as a weather system passes by. This will be a dry frontal system with maybe just a sprinkles on its backside late Monday into early Tuesday. Temperatures will be mild ahead of it on Monday, but will cool down back to seasonal normal Tuesday. High pressure then builds in for the remainder of the week with above normal highs and seasonable lows.


Monday Scattered high clouds with some low cloudcover possible on the coast later in the day—especially on the south side of the bay. Cooler for most areas with highs in the 60s. Breezy northwest winds becoming windy for the valleys later in the day. Drizzle possible out of thickening low clouds on the south side of the bay late.

Overnight: Low clouds will fill the bay and nearby valleys. Expect mostly cloudy conditions at the coast, and partly cloudy inland. Lows will be warmer with mainly 40s across the region, mid to upper 30s for far interior locations. Patchy fog and a slight chance of light drizzle.

Tuesday: Becoming partly cloudy on the coast and mostly sunny inland. Cooler but seasonable with highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s. Breezy for valleys late in the day.

Extended: Expect warm highs and seasonable lows under mostly sunny skies all the way into the weekend. A storm system will approach from the west on Sunday with some rain possible. There are indications of a more active weather pattern for the latter half of the month.
