Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
What a great way to get over the proverbial humpday with highs in the 60s and even low 70s and gobs of sunshine! Tonight, mostly clear skies will allow a quick cool off so if you are heading out tonight, make sure to bring an extra layer. A decaying cold front will bring in some light cirrus clouds but no rain is expected overnight into Thursday. Expect a chilly start to Thursday as lows tonight under mostly clear skies will drop into the low 30s.
Speaking of … Thursday should also be a nice day overall. Starting off with some patchy valley fog and chilly, mostly sunny skies should allow for a warm up into the upper 50s and low 60s again. Clouds start to move in ahead of Friday’s cold front that will bring back showers. Aside from some early showers that may hit the coast late Thursday evening, most of the region will stay dry into Friday morning.
The next wave of showers moves through on Friday morning, mainly with the front, then tapering off to an occasional shower in the afternoon and evening, pushing up into the mountains. Highs will be a bit cooler, mid 50s but we should be able to see some sun breaks as the front breaks up in the afternoon.
The weekend is still looking like a winner with sunny skies back on Saturday and highs pushing into the mid 60s, and possibly even upper 60s if the fog clears quickly. Sunday also will stay warm with more clouds. By next week, a cut-off low may bring some light showers back Monday and another front with rain and cooler air around midweek.
Have a great Tuesday!
