The coastal low pressure yesterday gave us more rain than expected with just over an inch. This low is moving further offshore but some moisture is causing fog this morning. The fog will dissipate this morning and it will be partly sunny and warm with highs mostly just above 70 degrees.
A frontal system will likely give us showers Friday morning with a possible rumble of thunder. We should see clearing by Friday afternoon, and it will become windy and warm with highs well up into the 70s ahead of a cold front that will cross the area Friday afternoon, some record highs possible.
The weekend will be cooler but still mild with highs in the 60s. Saturday will be the nicest day of the weekend then a low pressure system will likely give us more rain on Sunday.
High pressure will dominate our weather early next week. Temperatures will be below normal on Monday, near normal on Tuesday and slightly above normal on Wednesday.
