September 29, 2017 – Cooler weather into next week. Precipitation chances will likely remain north of the area.

Short term discussion (Tonight through Sunday)

Ridging shifts off to the east today as digging trough approaches the coast and then moves onshore this weekend into early next week. This will bring cooler temperatures with valley highs in the 80s and mountains in the 50s-70s.

Best dynamics and bulk of the moisture will remain north of the state so have kept dry forecast going.

Will see some breezy north winds develop Saturday especially, across the coastal range and western side of the valley.

Extended discussion (Tuesday through Friday)

Large upper trough forecast to dig south over the interior West early next week. Models don’t show much precipitation over our region with this pattern, so have kept low chance pops across the northern portions of our CWA.

Temperatures will lower to below average along with periods of breezy to gusty north winds.
