High pressure is taking control of our weather pattern for the short-term with a lot of clear sky above, very little marine layer, and larger than normal changes between our morning lows and afternoon highs. Tonight will be another mostly clear sky with cool to mild overnight lows...ranging from the 40s inland to the upper 50s and lower 60s closer to the coasts.
The ridge of high pressure will provide a lot of sunshine Thursday and almost as much on Friday, but it will be broken by a larger storm currently over the Pacific Ocean. We will have increasing clouds late Friday and Saturday along with decreasing temperatures. Isolated showers can't be ruled out on Saturday, but the likelihood of measurable rain is low.
Sunday through much of next week another ridge will slowly regain control of the weather over California. Highs will climb to slightly above average by the middle of next week with fewer and fewer clouds as next Thursday approaches. The marine layer will bring some low clouds and fog Sunday and Monday, but expect more sunshine most of next week.
