Changes coming...


An upper level low will move in from the west in the coming days, bringing cooler weather (mainly inland) and an isolated chance for showers.

Tuesday: Low clouds, patchy fog & drizzle early, then becoming mostly sunny. Temperatures will be seasonable with coastal highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s and mid 70s to low 90s inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Overnight:  Low clouds and fog for coastal areas and inland valleys. Drizzle possible. Coastal lows in the upper 50s mid to low 60s inland.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny with an isolated shower possible over the higher terrain. Any precipitation will be light. Cooler with highs in the 60s-80s.

Extended: Increasing clouds on Thursday with drizzle/sprinkles possible. Skies become partly cloudy into the weekend with below normal temperatures.

The outlook for July 14th-20th calls for near normal temperatures and near normal precipitation (typically little to no precipitation falls this time of year).
