With clear skies, it was another frosty cold start. High pressure brought plenty of sunshine today but temperatures were slow to respond remaining below average. A persistent easterly onshore flow will keep pulling in some moisture which will increase the low level clouds around the area overnight tonight. Lows will still be chilly and below average in the upper 30s to near 40.
LOW GRAY SKIES
Tuesday the winds will be light out of the east as an area of low pressure moves just off the coast to the northeast. Clouds will try to break up in the afternoon as the system pulls away and the winds shift more north-northeast. Highs will be in the upper 50s but if we get enough sunshine early enough, some areas could warm to the low 60s.
A cold front comes in late afternoon and evening on mid-week. This will bring a chance for showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Winds will shift to the south-southwest helping to get our temperatures back above average in the upper 60s.
TEMPS DIP BELOW AVERAGE AGAIN
Behind the front cooler air will filter in along with building high pressure. Clouds will mix with sunshine Thursday and highs will climb to near 60. More sunshine expected by Friday making it the best day of the week as high pressure centers itself overhead. Highs will reach the low 60s.
HALF THE WEEKEND LOOKING DRY
Winds shift Saturday as the high moves east. This will allow temperatures to warm into the upper 60s. There will be plenty of sunshine and dry weather to enjoy the outdoors. By Sunday, we’ll be watching the next system come in and bring a return of the clouds and possible showers late in the day. Highs expected in the mid 60s. Rain chances will be highest overnight into early Monday before the system exits out of the area. Highs Monday will be near average in the upper 60s with more sunshine by the afternoon.
