Partly cloudy skies are in the forecast for the morning commute, which will be short-lived as a cold front will sweep over the central coast Thursday evening.

Expect morning temperatures to be in the 30s for inland valleys, 40s for coastal valleys, and 40s and 50s along the coast. Southerly winds will gradually increase throughout the late afternoon and early evening hours, ranging from 10-20 miles per hour. By the afternoon, seasonal daytime highs will be back in the forecast and temperatures will be from the upper 50s for the coast and inland valleys, and from the low 60s for coastal valleys.

There's a 10 percent chance of rain just after 4 p.m. with increased chances by 11 p.m. The system will still be on the lighter side with rainfall estimates close to 0.10''. By Friday morning, the system will have moved out of the region and skies will be mostly sunny by the afternoon.

Another cold front is in the forecast for Saturday and could also bring scattered showers throughout the day that could carry over into early Sunday morning. Again, another light system that will leave sky conditions partly cloudy by Sunday afternoon.
