Fair and mild weather will continue this coming week, with
coastal clouds nights and mornings.



Sunny skies dominated the weather picture this afternoon. And it`s
a little warmer than it was yesterday at this time. The marine
layer and onshore flow should stabilize better than it was this
morning for a more uniform coastal cloud deck tonight, and
coastal clouds/fog could reach into the westernmost inland
valleys. Copy and paste this idea for the coming seven days and
your forecast should be pretty accurate. The day to day
fluctuations in cloud coverage and temperature will be too subtle
to notice unless you`re really paying attention. We are paying
attention around here, so we`ll mention that a very weak trough
develops Sunday and Monday that will probably push nocturnal
coastal clouds a little farther inland and bump temps downward a
few degrees. For the entire coming week we see no credible hint
from models about any monsoon flow. That will mean mostly clear
skies (except for the nocturnal coastal clouds), along with dry
and mild weather with temps a little under August averages.


161930Z...Coast/Valleys...Clear with unrestricted vis at this hour.
Low clouds with bases near 1200 ft msl will return to the coast
after 03Z Friday, slowly spreading inland about 20 miles by 12Z Fri.
Impacts to KONT and KSBD are doubtful. Local visibility restrictions
of 3 SM or less will occur where clouds and terrain intersect. Low
clouds and fog should clear to the coast between 16Z and 18Z Fri.

Mountains/Deserts...Clear skies and unrestricted visibility will
continue through Friday morning.


No hazardous marine weather is expected through Monday.


Skywarn activation is not requested. However weather spotters are
encouraged to report significant weather conditions.
