The big ridge of high pressure over the Eastern Pacific isn't moving a lot so we have continued dry air in the interior forcing lows in the 30s and low 40s and highs in the 80s, that looks to continue into next week.

At the coast night and morning clouds with afternoon clearing also continue with lows in the 40s and some lower 50s with beaches in the 60s and coastal valleys in the 70s.

The wind pattern is one thing that will change a little as we get into Friday and the weekend, the offshre push looks better near the coast and should result in better clearing and warmer highs.

Models don't show much, there are a series of low pressure systems in the Pacific that are trying to knock the ridge down. The overnight GFS and the morning run both show a very weak disturbance rolling thru on the 16th with some scattered showers. A blocking high in Alaska could start to push fronts south but I don't see a lot of follow-up activity. For now significant rain seems like wishful thinking to me.
