Tuesday will still see warm temperatures (80s) as the upper level ridge still has one day of dominating the local pattern.
Fast changes on Wednesday as the ridge weakens quickly, and highs could be 20 degrees cooler than Tuesday's. Wind flow turns onshore Wednesday and marine clouds should start to reform as well.
Low pressure moves into California on Thursday, surface low pressure to our north will be backed with a large upper level trough. NW winds increase on Thursday and Friday. Friday a cold front pushes through the Central Coast. Highs look to struggle in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Some light scattered showers are likely as well, but totals will be low as the system is moisture starved. Mostly cloudy conditions and breezy conditions will most common.
Some snow at higher elevations is not out of the question as snow levels could be as low as 2500ft, but it'll be a dusting if it happens. The Sierra is in line for 2-4".
Weekend looks to clear up but the highs will only be in the 60s, the interesting thing about the weekend is that it'll be cold overnight in the valleys and even some near freezing lows are possible. The following week looks to have a more moderate pattern for temperatures.
