A cut-off low pressure system is sitting well off the coast, which will bring a little bit more variety to the forecast for the rest of the week and into the weekend.
For the remainder of the week, the low-pressure system will spin clouds in our direction, providing a mixed bag of clouds and sun. Over the weekend, the low finally begins to push onshore, bringing with it more clouds and the small possibility of some light showers. Keep in mind, however, the chance for showers isn’t even significant enough to warrant mention in the National Weather Service public forecast. More than likely we'll stay dry.
Temperatures are also headed in a new direction next week as winds will shift onshore and cool us down significantly. Historically, the average high in January is about 67 degrees. So far this winter we’ve seen temperatures mostly in the 70s as well as a few days above 80. Next week, as onshore flow kicks in, we’ll see highs only reaching the low 60s.
Long-range models are also hinting at change. While confidence in long range forecasting is sketchy at best, they do get in the ballpark. Many are predicting a good shot at rain late next week, so if you’re like me and bored with the current weather pattern, keep your fingers crossed!
