Finally a stretch of dry weather into early next week

Posted at 3:35 PM, Feb 22, 2019

A ridge of high pressure has built over the Central Coast and skies will stay clear to partly cloudy over the weekend with slowly warming temperatures. By later next week some coastal valleys could see the return of 70 degree temperatures but not before another rain system moves into the area.

We’ll see some increasing high clouds over the weekend as a storm system passes us to the north. More similar clouds from another storm system miss move thru the area Monday.

Highs low to mid-60s at the coast this weekend with inland highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Wednesday a front to the north sags into the area for clouds and showers. After that some sub-tropical air gets aimed at us, this sets the stage for a potential wet start to March with a storm within the first few days of the month. Trade-off is that temps late next week should hit the 70s for some.

The deep extended forecast looks like a strong jet stream and subtropical air are all in place for a potential string of storms lined up into the middle of the month.
