An upper level trough swung into the western U.S. and as expected it deposited ample clouds at the coast and well into the interior. This feature is still around Friday for more cool weather, though some temperature improvement inland could begin but I still expect most inland highs to stay in the 70s, the coast will see a blend of 60s and lower 70s.
This is a look at the digging trough that will keep inland temps down Thursday and Friday… it lifts out for the weekend for warming temps inland again, back into the mid 80s and low 90s.
At the coast the clouds and strong onshore winds will keep things cool through Friday. A warming trend is expected over the weekend and into early next week as onshore winds weaken but this will be easist to notice inland where high quickly spring this weekend inthe the mid 80s and potentially the lower 90s.
Some morning drizzle is possible with the marine clouds at beaches and near coastal valleys.
Summer officially kicks off Friday morning with the solstice.
Tomorrow is Friday (I thought it was today earlier this week… wishful thinking) but it'll not only mean the end of a work week but the beginning of summer.
Some offshore should develop thru the weekend but it is not entirely clear if it’ll be strong enough to completely clear out beach clouds, I expect coastal valleys to see plenty of sun and beaches to see afternoon sun after monrning clouds but it could be partly cloudy.
The warming trend will reverse Tuesday as the next trough arrives on the west coast. A stronger onshore flow will develop through Thursday with cooling temps pushing inland. Then warming expected going Friday into next weekend as high pressure strengthens and expands over the desert southwest. Models also hinting at some northerly flow developing in the lower levels that would bring more warming to coastal areas and possibly a reprieve in the June gloom conditions.
