The axis of the high pressure ridge sat over our region today allowing for the warmest of temperatures with little to no cloud coverage. Highs of 90 were seen in the valley locations and in Norther California. The exception to these cloudless skies were along the coast where low level clouds hung around and kept temperatures cool. In fact, looking at the 24-hour temperature changes, all areas were 5-10 degrees warmer than yesterday while the coast sat 5-10 degrees cooler. A low pressure system is moving towards the region and will arrive in the early hours of tomorrow with a weak cold front. Expect mostly cloudy skies and cooler temperatures. Some areas will see stray showers develop, especially the mountains and Northern California. The coastal areas will get fog overnight Thursday that will persist through some of the day on Friday. When this fog lifts, mostly low lying clouds will hang around. The north coast will also see shower activity as well. Clouds will begin decreasing overnight on Friday as another round of High Pressure builds in.
Saturday will see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies in all regions. If you are heading out to the Boatnik Parade this weekend, pack plenty of sun screen as it will be a sunny and warm day. Clouds will move back in on Sunday afternoon as another round of low pressure moves in. Some showers will likely be present the morning of Memorial Day, especially at the coast and in the mountains. All other locations should see mostly cloud coverage and warm afternoon temperatures. Clouds will continue for the rest of the week.
Thanks for logging on and have a great day!
