The ridge of high pressure sitting off shore that was keeping us nice and toasty last week has flattened out and allowed a cold front to slide through this morning. We started the day with overcast skies and a few light showers, but relatively warm with temperatures only falling to the low 50s overnight.
The front is already moving on, showers ending, and clouds parting, but a cooler air mass is overhead, which will keep temps in the low 60s today.
Tuesday will likely start with patchy fog, but sunny skies will be revealed for the second half of the day. This will be the last day with temps in the low 60s.
The ridge of high pressure will rebound Wednesday, another thermal trough will develop and the heat will begin to kick in. Not a drop of rain is in the forecast from Wednesday through Sunday. Highs will soar to the low 70s Wednesday, Upper 70s Thursday and Friday and near 80 for the Weekend.
Enjoy this cool weather while it lasts
