Friday could see rain but just not much of it

Our weather week continues to be very quiet but technically there is a chance of rain Friday into Saturday. The upper low heading our direction will likely be very moisture starved and if rain falls locally it looks to be exceedingly light.

There is a better chance of rain over southern California than locally.

Until then: Above normal temperatures are expected as high pressure remains over the area. Night through morning low clouds and patchy fog will move in again tonight.

Night and morning offshore winds turn back onshore over the next few days, this should actually limit the amount of marine layer locally but the offshore push is pretty weak so some clouds are not out of the question.

Highs over the next few days look to be in the lower to mid 60s at the beaches with coastal valleys in the mid to upper 60s and inland temps near 70 for highs.

Outside of the Friday minor rain chance (I think it misses more folks than it hits) the temperatures actually hold up rather well into the weekend.

The cClimate Prediction Center updated their 6-10 day outlooks and the 8-14 outlook as well.

Across The West looks like they are anticipating some cooling but still a generally dry pattern.
