Now let's get to the forecast.
The start of the week is looking pretty nice. After a wet Sunday evening we see clouds depart and high pressure move into the region as our cutoff low departs. Note, this is cutoff season, where very slow moving systems bring misery mist and cooler than normal conditions.
We should see breezy but sunny conditions on Monday, with seasonable highs. It'll feel good outside though as the sun angle continues to increase. Tuesday looks even better, with highs likely to be in the low 60s in the interior. These are definitely the picks of the week.
Unfortunately, that'll be the extent of our nice weather streak. By late Tuesday night, we see showers entering the state as the next weather system approaches. Wednesday looks wet, especially early, but showers will be possible through the day as a coastal storm passes to our south and offshore. We should see a break in the heavier rain though, so Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday should be ok before the next system. Temperatures will be cooler and below normal.
Thursday brings the next rain maker and it looks like a washout day. Friday currently looks better, but we will probably see more showers if we get redevelopment off the coast. Overall, this period looks wet, cool, and cloudy.
In the wake of another cutoff low, we should see better conditions for the weekend, but it looks like we won't be too far away from showers. Temperatures are likely to be a little warmer than the rainy stretch, but we have to watch to see if we see more cloudy conditions and widespread showers. That said, I don't think I'd cancel any outdoor weekend plans at this time, we can still see some nice conditions.
