Quiet Finish to the Weekend

The weather for the second half of the weekend will be very quiet. Skies are going to be sunny/mostly sunny and temperatures will trend slightly warmer than Saturday. The marine layer is expected to push further inland overnight, so expect morning clouds and areas of fog along the Coast and across the West Side.

On Monday, an area of low pressure to our south will drive inland — with it’s center positioned over California and Nevada. This is going to bring in cooler air aloft and also moisture, allowing for the development of showers and thunderstorms later in the day. For now, this activity looks to be over Northern California, along the Cascades and in the Klamath Basin.

The models have been pretty consistent at showing these areas seeing afternoon and evening convection so the confidence is becoming higher from day to day that scattered thunderstorms will develop for this time period. The lightning threat is short lived though because drier air moves in by Tuesday.

Originally, the models were indicating showers/storms both Monday and Tuesday …but now this I am leaning towards just Monday. Following this short term active weather, dry and quiet conditions will be ongoing through the remainder of the week with temperatures staying fairly steady from day to day.
