A beautiful day around the county today, but clouds will increase on Friday as the marine layer returns.

Temperatures will trend 5 to 10 degrees cooler on Friday, with daytime highs right around normal. The only area remaining above average will be the deserts with numbers close to 7 degrees above normal, but closer to normal this weekend.

The cool down is accompanied by the marine layer, and onshore winds. The winds will impact the mountains on Friday, gusting between 20-35 mph. The winds will subside by Saturday morning. The marine layer will hover over the coast and western valleys, with patchy fog Friday morning before mixing to partly cloudy skies near the coast and mostly sunny inland. The clouds may not mix as well on Saturday, and a deepening marine layer could also trigger some patchy drizzle.

High pressure will redevelop on Sunday, allowing the sun to shine a little brighter. It'll be milder too with improving temperatures into early next week. A cut off low will make the forecast interesting next week adding clouds and a slight chance for rain, but most likely we will remain dry.

Thursday's Highs:
Coast: 61-66°
Inland: 64-69°
Mountains: 56-64°
Deserts: 71-76°
