Wednesday Night Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
Still warm as we get ready to welcome in the holiday weekend but the changes are already in the works for a cooler Fourth and Friday as well. Tonight, clear skies except for the coast with some marine fog moving back in. The cooler air is arriving and we’ll start tonight by seeing overnight lows dip back into the mid 50s.
An approaching low pressure area will dip south into the Northwest with the jetstream starting tomorrow bringing an injection of Alaskan air and the winds returning from off the ocean. Highs will be impacted, dropping back into the low to mid 80s inland with sunny skies and mid 60s along the coast. By dusk, coastal locales will be about the only spots with night clouds, otherwise, all the other firework displays should be just fine.
Friday we’ll finally start to see overnight lows back down into the low 50s which will provide much needed relief and cooler air. This’ll be the coolest day of the week with highs only getting up into the upper 70s, but it will be short-lived. By Saturday and certainly Sunday, high pressure will be back, just not as intense for next week. Even so, expect to see highs back into the upper 80s and low 90s by Tuesday.
Have a great Fourth of July!
