  • Rain chances remain slim this week
  • Increasing sunshine expected
  • Gradually warming toward the weekend

Skies turn partly cloudy this evening allowing temperatures tonight to slip to the low 60s for most areas. Some of the deeper valleys may even wake to a few upper 50s.


A stalled front and low pressure system along the coast is keeping a cool air wedge in place over the next few days. This will mean cooler than average temperatures under partly sunny skies. Any organized rain will stay to our east along the coast. Should we see any showers, they would be more isolated and spotty. Highs will be in the 70s to low 80s.

The weekend outlook remains mostly dry with temperatures and humidity increasing to near normal. Highs slowly climb to the upper 80s to low 90s by Saturday. Along with the heat comes the humidity and only isolated shower/storm chance.

Confidence on where the showers/storms will develop is quite low, however, the mountains have a slightly better advantage of seeing any storms.

Temperatures return to the 90s by the second part of the weekend.
