Weather Authority Forecast Summary

Cool start to week, warm to finish

Your Monday July 24th Evening...

An upper level trough on the West Coast will keep cooler than normal air in the region until mid-week. With a deep marine layer, expect morning low clouds to fill coastal areas and extend well into inland valleys. High pressure nudges back west by the end of the week with a warm-up expected.


Tuesday: Broken low clouds along the coast throughout the day, but sunny inland. Highs will be below normal with 60s on the coast and 70s to low 90s inland. Breezy for the major river valleys in the afternoon.

Overnight: Low clouds for coastal areas and inland valleys. Fog possible, mainly in the hills and inland valleys. Expect lows in the 50s for most areas.

Wednesday: Slightly sunnier and warmer. Scattered low clouds will linger on the coast, but inland areas will be sunny through the afternoon. Expect coastal highs in the 60s to low 70s with inland highs in the 70s to mid 90s.

Extended: With high pressure building back in, inland areas will warm considerably-- back above normal for both Thursday and Friday. Coastal areas will warm a bit too under mostly sunny skies. Warmer weather is likely to continue through the weekend and into the start of next week.


The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for August 1st-7th calls for the likelihood of above normal temperatures and near normal precipitation, though little to no precipitation typically falls this time of year.
