After a lovely Valentine’s Day evening, sea fog will blow in overnight and possibly slow you down for your Wednesday morning drive. The increase in moisture will come with a 30% chance for mainly light to moderate showers.
Temperatures will slowly warm ahead of sunrise, reaching the low-to-mid 60s by sunrise. After the fog lifts a little sun breaking through the clouds will push temperatures into the upper 70s Wednesday afternoon. A cold front will arrive early Thursday morning dropping temperatures from the 70s to the 50s in about an hour. It will remain chilly all day under a cloudy sky with a strong northwest breeze, so if you step outside and it’s still mild, go ahead and take the jacket with you anyway.
How cold will it get behind this front?
Lows in the mid-to-upper 30s are expected for Friday and Saturday mornings, but most of us will likely stay above freezing. Highs both of those days will only climb into the 50s.
What’s the outlook for the rest of the weekend?
After a cold start to Saturday, temperatures will warm to the upper 50s under a partly cloudy sky. The Gulf breeze will return by late Saturday, which will bring milder temperatures for Sunday. It will still be chilly in the morning with lows in the 40s, but highs should reach the lower 70s with a mix of clouds and sunshine. We expect the weekend to be completely dry.
What about the weather for Presidents Day?
If you have a long weekend with Presidents Day on Monday, you will see a warm end to your weekend. Temperatures could reach 80 degrees in most neighborhoods with dry weather under a partly sunny sky. The warm weather may continue for much of next week.
