The Week Ahead:
A closed low is forecast to impact California on Friday and Saturday. It's path will bring most of the energy to Central/Northern California, leaving cooler temperatures and cloudier skies being the major impacts for San Diego County. The low will settle in the Great Basin through Monday as it weakens.
The marine layer is expected to deepen through Saturday, with it a chance of drizzle in the overnight and morning hours. The marine layer will continue to strengthen through Saturday, leaving limited clearing throughout until Sunday.
As the low weakens Sun through Tuesday, temperatures will warm to near or above normal. The marine layer will also shallow out, lowering cloud bases and increasing daytime cloud clearing. There is a potential for morning fog extending to the inland valleys with the lower cloud bases.
Low clouds are a lot thinner this AM, meaning two things: 1) light rain has been limited to the mountains 2) those in the coasts/valleys might actually see the ??today. Happy Friday!
