The current weather pattern has put us under a strong northwesterly flow, strengthening the onshore flow which is enhancing the marine layer and thickening the clouds.  The layer will burn back to or near the coast this afternoon leaving mostly sunny skies, a little on the breezy side though with the winds becoming northwesterly 8-12 gusting to 25, the afternoon high near 70.

The clouds get pushed in this evening and thicken overnight which could bring us a little light rain or drizzle starting in the early morning hours, especially at or near the Coast Range with the extra lift.  The winds will die down tonight, the low near 58.

Tomorrow looks pretty similar though not as much, if any, clearing and not as breezy, then Sunday the pattern shifts back slowly as high pressure starts to build in bringing mostly sunny skies by Monday, highs around 73, a few more clouds Tuesday, then, an approaching disturbance brings in a slight chance of showers Wednesday, maybe becoming breezy again that night then conditions improve again Thursday, highs still around 72.
