More of the Same!

Staying cool and cloudy. A trough of low pressure keeping temperatures below normal and the marine layer deep. The moist onshore flow will continue to bring bouts of drizzle to the coastal mountains—especially those that slope off to the southwest. Clouds will favor the north side of the bay with clearing on the south. At the trough passes, winds will switch to the northwest, so by Thursday morning, chance of drizzle with low clouds will be more focused on the south side of the bay. Winds will turn breezy. A trailing weather system will then move through early Friday and could bring a few light showers and gusty winds. Sun will eventually break through with a sunny weekend ahead!


Overnight: Widespread low clouds and passing high clouds will mean mostly cloudy conditions. Southwest winds shift becoming more west-northwest, still breezy at times. Mild temps in the upper 40s to low 50s.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy, with some clearing in the afternoon with clouds favored on the south side of the bay and clearing on the north. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies with a few sprinkles possible in the mountains. Coastal highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s with 60s to around 70ºF inland.

Friday: AM clouds and possible drizzle with more sunshine breaking through in the afternoon. Still a chance of a shower or two in the mts. NW winds will turn gusty. Highs will still be on the cool side mainly in the low to mid 60s.

Extended: Sunny skies for the weekend. Gusty northwest winds will continue through the weekend and into early next week, though temperatures will warm back to normal from Saturday on and conditions should remain dry.
