Weather Forecast

A nice holiday


High pressure drifts off to the southeast, allowing for cooler, drier air to move into the region into the weekend. Inland temperatures will cool significantly by the end of next week.

Overnight:  Low clouds/patchy fog near the coast and inland valleys. Some drizzle possible as well. Coastal lows in the mid to upper 50s with mid 50s to low 60s inland.

Saturday/Independence Day: Becoming mostly sunny with some low clouds hanging around east-facing shorelines. Breezy for inland valley locations in the afternoon. Coastal highs in the low 60s to low 70s with upper 70s to upper 90s inland.

Sunday: Low clouds near the coast and inland valleys in the morning with patchy fog and drizzle possible. Becoming mostly sunny in the afternoon. Coastal highs in the low 60s to low 70s but slightly cooler inland with highs ranging from the mid 70s to mid 90s.

Extended: An upper level low will develop off the west coast by Monday which will bring a few clouds and cooler weather (much cooler inland) to the region into late next week.

The outlook for July 11th-17th calls for near normal temperatures and near normal precipitation (typically little to no precipitation falls this time of year).
