Cloudy, Cool, And A Few Friday Showers | By: Eric McCormick
Good morning! We can see a little better this morning – visibilities have improved quite a bit overnight as marine layer clouds lifted in height just a bit. We’ve still got plenty of low clouds in place as we start our day, but at least the fog itself is not as bad. Everyone is running in the 40s and 50s in the temperature department.
Today will be another day that we deal with plenty of clouds and cool temperatures. Low marine layer clouds will meander along the coast. In addition, there are plenty of mid and high clouds streaming in from the southwest across NorCal that will be overhead all day long. Filtered sunshine can be expected at times, but the clouds won’t dissipate completely. We’ll stay in the 50s at the coast, with 60s across the interior.
Mid and high clouds will build in more so tonight as a cool front approaches the coast from the west. Rain chances make a return for the first time in weeks to the North Coast tonight through mainly the first half of Friday. Rain will be light, but don’t surprised to see showers in this window of time, especially north of Highway 299. Rain totals 0.10 – 0.20″ are likely, with locally heavier amounts in Del Norte County. The front will be dissipating as it arrives, so not much, if any, rain will make it to Siskiyou, Trinity, or interior Mendocino Counties.
Partial clearing is likely Friday afternoon, though marine layer clouds may surge in along the coast in some places, keeping things on the cooler and gloomier side.
This weekend will be dry, with a meandering marine layer along the coast as the biggest forecast challenge. Inland areas should see a good deal of sunshine and comfortable temperatures.
A second storm in the seven day forecast remains in the forecast, but the timing continues to slow down. Our next area of low pressure and a cool front will arrive Tuesday and last into Wednesday…we have removed the Monday PM rain chances. Again, this front looks on the weaker side with scattered showers. Temperatures are expected to be cool as this system passes by. Rain chances around 40% are currently in the forecast for next week.
Keep checking back for updates – have a great Thursday!
