Our sensational stretch of weather keeps rolling for two more days but the honeymoon may be over by Monday. Our flow of air starts coming in off the ocean early next week introducing a chance of occasional showers.

Today (Saturday): Like the past couple of days, we’ll have a pleasant mix of sun and clouds. Humidity is low and temperatures settle in the comfortable upper 70s for most of us. Winds are light from the northeast. Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: Partly cloudy skies and quite nice and refreshing. Evening temperatures slip back through the 70s with overnight lows in the low to mid-60s downtown, upper 50s elsewhere. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Sunday): Take Saturday, rinse, and repeat. The only real difference between the two days is that there may be a bit less in the way of afternoon cloud over Sunday. Highs are again mostly in the upper 70s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: Marine flow (from the east) starts to creep into the region meaning mostly cloudy skies. Lows range from near 60 in our cooler areas to the mid-60s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High


Both Monday and Tuesday bring considerable cloud cover and the chance for patchy light rain and intermittent showers. It’s not a washout, and rain chances are somewhat higher Tuesday than Monday. The clouds hold high temperatures mostly in the 70s with overnight lows in the 60s. Confidence: Medium
