As nice as today’s mixed cloud cover and temperatures near 70 were, Friday is a cut above. We have more sunshine and more warmth. A little morning fog presents the only possible blemish. It may well be the nicest day until the middle of next week, so enjoy!
Through Tonight: Mostly clear skies and pleasant. Evening temperatures in the 60s eventually bottom out in the low 50s downtown with mid-to-upper 40s in the cooler suburbs. Some patchy fog may develop, especially in outlying areas.
Friday: Very little not to like. Any fog quickly burns off and sunny skies dominate. Highs reach the mid-70s with a light wind from the south at around 10 mph. A few high clouds increase late - a harbinger of unsettled weather over the weekend.
Pollen: Washed out due to yesterday’s rain.
Weekend forecast: There’s still a fair amount of uncertainty about exactly how much rain we see this weekend. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms Saturday seem like a good bet as a cold front approaches. The big question mark is what happens Sunday: will an area of low pressure developing along the southside of the cold front track up the coast and produce big rains or go out to sea? I favor a glancing blow with clouds and showers rather than a driving rain, but stay tuned.
