Most of us tonight will stay dry, but also continue to see plenty of cloud cover as moisture lingers across southwest and central California. Temperatures tonight will be fairly close to seasonal norms or perhaps slightly more mild than normal because of the clouds. Upper 40s and 50s are in the forecast for the South Coast and Oxnard Plain, with 40s on tap for most areas north of Point Conception.
We'll close out the work week on a mostly cloudy and cool note as another weak storm works through the northwest flow. This storm will mostly target the Pacific Northwest and the very northern part of California. As the tail end of this next front moves southward, it will weaken considerably, with only isolated showers or some sprinkles possible tomorrow and tomorrow night. Temperature wise...daytime highs on Friday will remain seasonably cool, only warming up to the middle 50s to middle 60s.
After what seems like weeks of wet and unsettled weather, we turn off the tap beginning this weekend as the storm track retreats northward. As high pressure builds in, winds will be a concern for some this weekend as the north flow intensifies. Temperatures will be mild through the weekend before warming up significantly next week. Daytime highs at the peak of the warm-up will top out in the 70s and lower 80s.
