We didn't quite lose all the clouds that filled much of the sky this morning, and the sky will be filling with gray again tonight. A small area of low pressure just to our southwest will continue moving over the Central Coast tonight through tomorrow. Unfortunately it won't bring any chance for measurable rain. Lows tonight will range from the 50s on the Central Coast to the 60s along the South Coast.
Thursday and Friday will begin much as the last several mornings have with morning clouds, but the early gray will give way to more sunshine than we've had the last few days. This is due to the large trough of low pressure over the Pacific Northwest pushing the marine layer onshore. Highs will be in the seasonable range through the end of the week with upper 60s on the coast, and 70s and 80s further inland.
High pressure will nudge its way closer to California this weekend, and that will bring us more sunshine for the beginning of the Labor Day weekend. Highs will also begin to climb. Although another trough will start pushing toward the West Coast for the first half of next week, highs will remain well above average through the holiday and beyond. Highs will range from the 70s on the coast to the mid 90s in our hottest valleys.
