Monday’s Weather Discussion from Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
We’re starting off the week on a nice stretch of sunny and warm weather, all courtesy of a strong ridge of high pressure sitting offshore. We’ll hold onto clear skies overnight with lows falling into the low 50s and upper 40s. Tomorrow, no morning clouds means a fast warm up into the low to mid 80s both Tuesday and Wednesday.
Late Wednesday into Thursday, a weak front tries to swipe across the state, while it won’t bring any rain chances (with the exception of some coastal drizzle), I am expecting to see the marine layer push back inland at least for Thursday and possibly Friday morning. Highs will be just a bit cooler, back into the upper 70s. But by the weekend, the high flattens out just a bit keeping an onshore push with the jet stream. Meaning, we’ll hold onto plenty of sunshine, but highs will be warm and not overly hot, staying in the low to mid 80s.
Fans in town for the NCAA Track & Field Championships should see MUCH better weather at Hayward than last year’s olympic trials. Just remember to bring the sunscreen! And also, still be careful wading in the rivers: currents are still very strong and water temps aren’t much above the 50s and in some cases, in the 40s. Doesn’t take long to get in real trouble, even if you’re a good swimmer. Otherwise, enjoy the sunny, dry weather!
Have a great Tuesday!
