Temperatures will increase slowly through Sunday as low pressure exits the region. Another low, which will stay off the coast in the Pacific Ocean, will prevent any significant warming. Winds will be mostly from the north over the weekend.
Another cool down is on the way, starting Monday through the latter half of the coming week. A deep, cold trough will strengthen over the Western U.S. Tuesday, dropping temperatures well below average for midweek.
