A Little Bit Cooler Now

After a seasonably warm day, expect an overall cool down Thursday with more coastal clouds. The ridge of high pressure responsible for the nice weather will begin to weaken, allowing for a deeper onshore flow. We’ll double down on the coastal cool & cloudy on Friday before leveling out to seasonable weather this weekend. Some patchy drizzle may be possible out of the low clouds at the coast, but for the first time in a while, a dry weekend is expected.


Thursday: Cooler daytime highs with increasing low clouds at the coast, and high clouds for inland areas. Coastal highs in the 60s and upper 60s to around 80ºF inland. Low clouds/fog possible on the coast late.

Overnight: Low clouds at the coast will filter into nearby valleys. Elsewhere expect partly cloudy skies with passing high clouds. Lows will be in the mid 40s to low 50s at the coast, 40s inland. Areas of patchy fog and some light drizzle possible come morning.

Friday: Mostly to partly cloudy at the coast early, then gradual clearing with some sunshine by lunchtime. Inland will see partly cloudy to mostly sunny conditions. Cooler with highs at the coast in the low to mid 60s and 60's to 70's inland.

Extended: We’ll see seasonable temps through the weekend with low clouds in the morning and evening at the coast, but afternoon sunshine. While inland, expect mostly sunny conditions. The pattern will remain quiet into the next week before a trough of low pressure starts to move in to cool temperatures down slightly. The next chance of rain will come toward the end of the week.
