TONIGHT: Cool, Partly Cloudy. Lo 44. Winds W 5 mph.

MONDAY: Stray Shower, Partly Cloudy. Hi 58.

TUESDAY: Passing Cloud, A Few Shower. Hi 60.

Today began with a lot of clouds and wind as the sun came out. The energy for the clouds and wind stem from a strong area of low pressure was situated off to our east. Now through Wednesday a trough of low pressure will help to reinforce daily cloud cover and a quick/light shower. Tonight will clear with temperatures dropping to the upper 30s in the coldest valleys with low 40s for most.

The stray shower threat reappears Monday, but the presence of higher pressure will allow for even more sunshine in the following days as it nudges its way in from the west. Highs climb from the upper 50s Monday into the upper 60s by the coming Thursday. Lows climb from the mid to low 40s Sunday night into the low 50s by Friday night. Already however, models are hinting at the potential for another cold front and rain chance heading into next weekend. There’s been a slight shift in the location of the low to just off the coast so we will keep you updated on further refinements of the models and track in the coming days.
