Today will be a carbon copy of yesterday with a mix of sun and smoke for inland areas and winds picking up again this afternoon along the coast. Winds will be fairly breezy in the basin today ahead of a cold front that will pass through our region later today or early tomorrow. It’s a weak cold front so expect to only see temperatures drop a few degrees, and the cooler temperatures won’t last long as a warming trend starts Sunday and continues next week.
Chilly starts to the mornings in the basin will continue for the next few days but will start to warm up when the warming trend really kicks up midweek. For other areas in the morning hours continue to see some patchy fog along the coast as the marine layer moves in, but by the afternoon partly clouds skies. Some areas along the coast may actually see quite a bit more sunshine than other areas. The real story for the coast through the holiday weekend and even into midweek will be strong afternoon winds. A small craft advisory is in effect until 5 AM Wednesday. Something to keep in mind if you’re headed to the coast for the long weekend, especially if you’re taking a boat out on the ocean.
Something else to keep in mind while you celebrate this weekend is that the Fire Danger Level is still at ‘Extreme,’ you can see the entire list of regulations under the ‘Weather Links.’ You can also find the most up to date Air Quality levels there as well.
Stay safe this weekend and keep fire safety in mind!
