Weather Forecast

Hot through midweek


A strong ridge of high pressure continues to dominate the Southwest during the next few days. Inland temperatures will rise rapidly into the 90s and 100s once again Wednesday while light onshore flow will keep the coast cooler in the 60s and 70s.

Overnight: Partly cloudy skies with patchy dense fog along the HWY 1 corridor. Overnight lows predominantly in the 50s to mid 60s - most mild in the inland valleys and highest elevations.

Wednesday: Hot inland. Partly cloudy early for the entire region with passing high clouds and scattered low clouds at the coast. Cloud coverage will decrease later in the day allowing for mostly sunny skies. Coastal highs in the 60s and 70s on the southeast side of the Bay with 70s and 80s on the north side. Inland highs reach the upper 80s to low 100s - the warmest locations approaching 110.

Extended: We will continue to see rounds of high cloud cover over the next few days. Inland valleys and coastal areas will start cooling down into the second half of the week and the 4th of July Weekend. Expect more seasonable temperatures with clouds on the coast and clear skies inland. 

The outlook for July 6th-14th calls for above normal temperatures and near normal precipitation (typically little to no precipitation falls this time of year).
