Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
We’re starting to see the beginnings of a mini-cooldown for the next couple of days as a weak system will push the onshore over the next 24 hours. Cooler Pacific air starts to bring the temperatures down just a few degrees and bring back the morning clouds for the inland valleys the next two days. The front itself won’t be too impactful, aside from some drizzle at the coast, it’s fairly weak and will just bring in a stronger push of the marine air.
Highs over the next couple of days will feel the cooler air and only top out in the low to mid 80s. The coast will be more cloudy than sunny with highs in the 60s. Folks headed to this year’s Scandanavian Festival in Junction City should see a great forecast with sunshine and temps not too hot. By the weekend, another low develops off the California coast and start to move inland. The southerly flow will pull up more monsoonal moisture, heating it up and creating thunderstorms across the mountains mainly Sunday through early next week.
High pressure grabs hold again of the forecast next week and we’re likely heading back into the low 90s, sunny and dry. The valleys may also see a chance for some isolated afternoon thunderstorms on Monday and again on Tuesday.
Have a great Friday!
