We start this week with northwesterly winds and decent clearing of low clouds from the coastal valleys in the late morning and afternoon after night and morning low clouds and fog (heard that one before).

An upper-level low-pressure system looks to develop to our north by Tuesday with the associated trough moving through our area Wednesday into Thursday morning with lighter southwesterly to northwesterly winds and a deepening marine layer with drizzle or even light showers possible. Wednesday night into Thursday morning looks the deepest in terms of the marine clouds and drizzle chance.

High temperatures on Wednesday will range between the high 70s to low 80s in the inland valleys, low 70s in the coastal valleys and low 60s along the beaches.

This system will be followed by 15-25mph northwesterly winds and mostly clear skies on Thursday afternoon through Saturday.
A more typical and less windy pattern re-develops Sunday into early next week.
