Overnight and morning low clouds will continue along much of the coast and near coast valleys through the week. Breezy afternoon and evening winds will develop each day and should help mix out those clouds. Temperatures will remain relatively mild through Friday then warm a bit this weekend.

An upper level low continues to linger in the Pacific Northwest through Saturday while high pressure builds over the desert Southwest.

Some weak ridging should squish the marine layer down a bit over the next few days along with weaker onshore winds. We should see less cloud cover than we did over the last few days (less but not 0). Night and morning clouds will re-form at the coast but this pattern features a better chance for clearing.

There will be a good afternoon winds from the NW over the area of 15-25mph which could also translate to some sundowner winds the next few evenings and early mornings for the SB county high country, Southcoast, passes and canyons. Advisories are possible with gusts potentially past 30mph.

A larger trough over the Pacific looks to linger in the extended forecast. This will mean near normal temps in the extended forecast with inland highs near 90, coastal valleys in the 70s and beaches in the 60s and lower 70s. We will see night and morning marine layer but a decent N-NW flow pattern should clear it most days into the middle of next week.
