Some clouds set back temps on Thursday but high pressure will produce gusty offshore winds starting tonight.
We will see clear skies and warmer daytime temperatures thru the weekend.
Upper 70s and low 80s will dominate coastal valley weather this weekend before change once again sweeps in Monday.
Under the arcing ridge in the sub-polar jet the sub-tropical will sneak in underneath and a mid-level low will start to spin away. It’ll draw up cloud cover, humidity and instability.
Monday we’ll see clouds increase and Tuesday into Wednesday rain showers should begin. We’ll get a little break before more rain is possible to close next week.
The Tuesday-Wednesday rain should be .25-75″ and perhaps as much again Friday (but we’ll have to wait for more definition this far out).
Due to the sub-tropical nature of the air-mass the snow levels will be very high and not help CA mountains that much.
