Weather Forecast

It's Almost Sun-tember


An upper level trough on the West Coast will keep us under relatively dry northwesterly flow over the next few days.

Wednesday: A low cloud or two in the morning, but mostly sunny for the rest of the day with just a few high clouds passing through. Hazy with areas of smoke near the fires. Breezy for most areas. Expect coastal highs in the mid 60s to upper 70s with upper 70s to mid 90s inland.

Overnight: Low clouds moving into coastal areas and some inland valleys. Patchy fog and drizzle possible. Expect coastal lows in the mid 50s with 50s inland.

Thursday: Scattered low clouds and fog early, becoming mostly sunny in the afternoon. Breezy at times, especially for exposed coastal areas. Coastal highs in the low 60s to upper 70s with upper 70s to low 90s inland.

Extended: Northwesterly flow continues with an upper level trough anchored over the West Coast. Coastal areas should remain seasonable to slightly cool with morning low clouds and afternoon sun. Inland areas will be a bit cool for this time of year with highs mainly in the 70s to low 90s all the way through the holiday weekend.

The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for September 7th-13th calls for near normal temperatures and near normal precipitation. (Note: Little to no precipitation typically falls this time of year.)
