SYNOPSIS
Issued at 127 PM PDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Dry conditions are here to stay with a gradual warming trend through midweek, peaking on Wednesday and/or Thursday. Onshore flow increases toward the end of the week; cooling temperatures near the coast as marine stratus returns.

SHORT TERM
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 1238 AM PDT Tue Apr 16 2024

A high pressure ridge aloft will center off the California coast with low-level ridging locating across the northeast Pacific. As lower pressures develop inland this will bring a modest pressure gradient and light onshore (N-NW) winds today. Given the ridging influence temperatures inland will warm into the 70s this afternoon with 60s along the coast. Readings tonight will drop into the upper 40s to lower 50s.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through Monday)
Issued at 1238 AM PDT Tue Apr 16 2024

The upper ridge will gain prominence on Wednesday and Thursday bringing milder temperatures to the region. High in the warmer inland valleys will top out in the upper 70s to lower 80s, with 60s to around 70 along the coast and bays.

The ridge will flatten thereafter in response to a weak perturbation translating through the mean westerly flow with stronger onshore flow and cooler temperatures. The ridge looks to rebuild by early next week with a slight warming trend. However onshore winds will keep things cooler by the coast. Dry conditions will prevail.
