From 70s to 50s - Our Weekend Reality Check!

There's no need to cancel outdoor plans on Saturday.  Showers will be hit or miss. In fact,  it's not a bad day to spend outside with temps around 70 degrees for the last day in a while!  Temperatures fall off the cliff on Sunday with highs in the middle 50s and a chilly breeze.  By Monday morning a widespread frost is possible with temperatures in the 30s right down to the coast.

Next week looks a little ugly.  With a storm stuck off the coast, we'll cope with lots of clouds and waves of cold rain Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and part of Friday! Yuck.

Tonight: Increasing clouds, chance for patchy fog. Low: Low to mid 50s.

Saturday:  Clouds and some sun, chance for a passing shower. West wind at 5 to 15 mph, gusts to 20 mph. High: Near 70 degrees.

Sunday: Windy and colder. Morning clouds break for afternoon sunshine. Northwest wind at 10 to 20 mph. High: Mid to upper 50s.

Monday: Cool despite plenty of sunshine.  Some high clouds mixing in during the afternoon.  High: Upper 50s to around 60 degrees.

Tuesday: Increasing clouds with showers developing. High: Upper 50s to around 60 degrees.

Wednesday: Cool and cloudy with scattered showers. High: Upper 50s to around 60 degrees.
