A touch cooler Thursday

Your Weather in 60 Seconds with Erica 08 22 19

We’ll remain sandwiched in between the big monsoonal high and a trough of low pressure over the North Pacific for the next few days. Influence from the two features will fluctuate at times over the next week with strengthening high pressure winning out through Thursday keeping temps a bit warmer. This trend will reverse briefly on Friday with cooler weather, then an even stronger ridge will build in after that. Moisture from Tropical Cyclone Ivo may reach the West Coast early next week. What that will mean for our forecast is yet to be determined.

Thursday: Patchy low clouds along the coast—mainly on the south/east sides of the bay. Sunny elsewhere. Highs in the upper 60s to low 80s on the coast, upper 70s to around 101ºF inland. Breezy for inland valleys and coastal river mouths in the afternoon.

Overnight: Low clouds redeveloping for coastal areas and inland valleys. Patchy drizzle possible near the coast. Lows in the 50s.

Friday: Low clouds a little more persistent on the coast. Cooler across the board with coastal highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s, 70s to low 90s inland.
Extended: Temps head back upward Saturday and Sunday with morning fog but afternoon sunshine. High clouds will be on the increase next week with some tropical moisture streaming into the area. It may also feel a bit muggy. Temps will stay warm on the coast and may be hot at times inland.


The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for August 29th - September 4th calls for the likelihood of ABOVE normal temperatures and near normal precipitation. Note: Little to no precipitation usually falls this time of year outside of occasional coastal drizzle.
