Forecast: Showers to dissolve, dry weather nears
FORECAST IN DETAIL
We can say our goodbyes today to the pesky disturbance that brought downpours, humidity, and gray skies for a sizable chunk of the weekend. It may give us a shower or two today on its way out, but beginning tomorrow, we transition to a sunnier and drier weather pattern. This pattern should extend through the holiday weekend -- though showers or thunderstorms may briefly re-appear late Thursday into Friday.
Today (Monday): With abundant low level moisture around, some fog is possible early on today. Any fog likely erodes as a little bit of sunshine sneaks through otherwise cloudy skies. We remain close enough to the decaying disturbance to our south that a few showers may develop during the day but these should be widely scattered. Highs reach the mid-70s. Confidence: Medium-High
Tonight: Mostly cloudy skies persist though we'll probably see some bigger breaks in the sky cover emerge towards morning. Lows drop to around 60. Confidence: Medium-High
Keep reading for the forecast through the week...
Tomorrow (Tuesday): More sunshine presents itself compared to the last couple days and this helps send the mercury back up towards 80 degrees. I can't totally rule out a shower, but odds are down around 20%. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: A few clouds stick around in the evening, but skies should become mostly clear towards morning as high pressure settles over the region. Lows fall to around 60 in the suburbs to the mid-60s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
A rather warm and dry airmass to the west builds over the region for Wednesday and Thursday. Both days should have considerable sunshine, with highs in the mid-80s Wednesday and all the way to near 90 on Thursday. By late Thursday or Thursday night, a cold front likely approaches from the northwest, increasing cloud cover and producing a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Overnight lows will tend to be mild, mainly in the 60s. Confidence: Medium-High
On Friday, the cold front may not entirely clear the region until evening, so I'll keep a 20% of showers and thunderstorms in the forecast -- though most activity may be east of the Bay. Highs should be in the low 80s. Confidence: Medium
Cool and dry high pressure to the north probably sinks southward for the Memorial Day weekend. This means sunshine, low humidity and comfortable temperatures. High should be in the mid-70s to around 80 (possibly into the low 80s by Monday) with overnight lows in the 50s to near 60. While the weekend outlook looks great right now, keep checking back as some details could change. Confidence: Medium
