Bit of a Gray Day

The cooling trend will continue into Friday! A weak upper level disturbance is passing over, taking the pressure off the marine layer and allowing it to deepen and push farther inland. The result has been a cool-down for all areas, but especially on the coast. The clouds will then hang close to the coast throughout the day on Friday with only patchy sunshine sneaking through. We’ll warm a bit this weekend as a ridge moves back in, then cool down next week with a trough digging down the coast. Could we see some rain? It’s possible! See the extended forecast for more.


Partly to mostly cloudy on the coast and becoming mostly sunny inland. Cool, with coastal highs in the upper 50s to low 60s, but more seasonable inland with highs in the mid 60s to upper 70s. Breezy onshore winds around the river mouths becoming windy into the valleys late in the day.

Overnight: Low clouds will fill the coast and eventually the valleys. High clouds will also be on the increase. Patchy fog possible. Lows in the upper 40s to low 50s at the coast and mainly 40s inland.

Saturday: Low clouds in the morning, then clearing with mostly sunny skies throughout the day. Warmer, with coastal highs in the 60s to around 70ºF. Inland highs, in the mid 70s to low 80s. Gusty northwesterly onshore winds in the afternoon.

Extended: We’ll cool back down a bit on Sunday for coastal areas as onshore winds become more westerly, but inland areas may be a touch warmer. The overall air mass will cool out of the weekend with a trough digging down the coast. We may have some light rain chances by the end of the week.
