Updated Wednesday 3:40 p.m.
After days and days and days of drama whether we'd reach 80 degrees, the drama today is whether we'll reach 70.
It's likely we will, but it's nice that we have to wait for the buzzer to find out, instead of reaching 70 before lunch. We haven't had a day cooler than 70 since July 24.
Thursday will have somewhat similar "drama" although 70 should be reached again, if not until late in the day. A pleasant evening will give way to increasing marine clouds overnight with lows in the mid 50s. The clouds will be around through early afternoon Thursday and then the gradual burnout to sunshine with highs in the low 70s.
A weak trough will be hanging around on Friday -- really it'll just present a similar day for many with morning clouds then some clearing but the trough will destabilize the air just a touch to where a few isolated showers could drifting through the lowlands. Most of the activity will be in the mountains however. Highs will warm a touch to the mid 70s.
Once that trough exits, the weather rapidly clears and warms as we get into to the weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday are looking quite nice with any morning clouds scooting away fairly early and mostly sunny days on tap with highs around 80.
We might see a brief dip in temperature Monday to the mid-upper 70s with a weak marine push, but long range models suggest more sunny and very warm days possible for next Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the 80s. Guess we aren't finished with those 70s lunches just yet...
