Monsoon moisture lingers

Posted: Updated:

Beaches and coastal valleys woke up to a lot of cloud cover and drizzle this morning from lingering moisture from an upper low which is the same mechanism which has delivered both some heat and thunderstorm activity over the last few days.

That low is not gone yet.  It is slowly getting caught up in developing westerlies and will ultimately clear the area later Wednesday.  Until then you can expect more mugginess and patches of drizzle or light showers with the night and morning cloud cover.

Over higher terrain, especially The Sierra more thunderstorms are possible.  Locally it is marginal, our model is not showing any thunderstorm development.

I think Wednesday looks very similar to Tuesday with the high-80s in the interior valleys and upper-70s in the coastal valleys with beaches in mid to high-60s.

When the low gets moving to the east on Thursday we'll finally see some stronger NW winds behind the low for cooler temps but more importantly less muggy air.  A little weekend rebound on temps may take place but another trough early next week should keep temps mild and the air feeling more seasonal and less swampy.
