Starting off the work with marine layer clouds about 1,200 feet and patchy fog. Pockets of dense fog have formed in the north county near the coast with visibility down to less than a quarter-mile at times. Leave plenty of time for travel!
Clouds will clear through mid-morning giving way to mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will continue their downward trend but still remain 5 to 10 degrees above average from the coast to inland valleys and 10 to 15 degrees above average in the mountains and deserts.
The ridge of high pressure that kept us well above average since last week is breaking down. Several storms will pass by well to the north of us ushering in strong on-shore flow through Thursday. This will bring gusty westerly winds to our mountains and deserts with gusts generally 20 to 35 mph.
Monday's High Temperatures:
- Coast: 65-73°
- Inland: 79-85°
- Mountains: 66-82°
- Desert: 90-95°
The mercury continues to drop through Thursday with overnight and morning clouds and fog persisting. Friday off-shore flow briefly returns and our temperatures sky rocket 5 to 10 degrees from Thursday to Friday. Warm again Saturday with temperatures dropping just as quickly just in time for Easter Sunday, very pleasant in the 70s from the coast to the valleys.
