Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
Highs will struggle to get into the mid 40s midweek with widespread fog in the valley both today and Friday. We should be able to get back to mostly sunny skies by the afternoon. Through the rest of the week, high pressure will strengthen over the Pacific, pulling an offshore wind and bringing back sunny skies for the mountains and coast without the morning fog. The cold, dry air and mostly clear nights, will drop overnight lows into the upper to mid 20s for the inland valleys Thursday through the weekend. This will be cold enough to kill any sensitive plants that are left out overnight and we’re likely looking at our coldest nights of the season so far. So remember to take care of your outdoor pets as well.
By the weekend, high pressure will still hold strong, so we’ll keep the sunny afternoons and bring a few degrees back, but overall, highs will be chilly near 50 and overnight lows staying below freezing around 30 each night. More clouds move back into the picture early next week but there’s no rain on the horizon for now.
Have a great Thursday!
