We continue to have a rather dull surface pattern featuring weak surface winds. The coastal clouds have been retreating to the beaches and lingering there much of the afternoons before pushing back into the coastal valleys and I don’t see any change in that pattern thru the weekend. We will see an interesting blend of temps from the 50s and low 60s at the beaches to the 60s and lower 70s in the coastal valleys and 80s inland.
There is an upper low coming our way later Sunday-Tuesday. It’ll cross southern California but we’ll be close enough to it for some partly cloudy skies an a chance of a few scattered showers, especially across SB county and the interior Monday and Tuesday. If rain happens it’ll only add up to hundredths of an inch.
I see more NW winds late next week for better clearing and warmer temps. Beyond that models diverge. The European model likes another rain opportunity around next weekend while the American model takes that same system and has the front falling apart on arrival. This will be something to watch over the course of next week to see how it develops or fails to.
