Mild and Dry Weather Forecast for San Francisco Area Today

Bryan Dijkhuizen

Mild days and cold nights will continue through the end of the week, with intervals of strong northerly winds expected tonight and into tomorrow. Dry weather will continue to dominate across the area through Friday, with a modest possibility of light showers over the North Bay late in the day on Saturday afternoon.

The area is seeing mostly clear skies this morning, except a few mid/high clouds over the Bay Area and the northern section of the state.

Temperatures have already risen into the low to high 50s over the area, with onshore breezes anticipated to pick up intensity during the day and evening.

In spite of all of this, the continuing forecast remains on track for the time being, with no changes expected this morning. Please see the section below for detailed data on the weather prediction for the next days.

It is expected that an upper level ridge will stay strong throughout the eastern Pacific, with downward cyclonic flow dominating across the western United States.

During its journey through the mean trough, a minor perturbation should dip southeastward from the Pacific Northwest into the Great Basin, with lower surface pressures resulting from the central/southern Rockies to the Desert Southwest, according to the forecast.

Surface high pressure concentrated to our west will cause rising northerly flow over the Pacific seas this morning, which will then expand inland by the afternoon and into the evening.

The upper wave should be accompanied by little precipitation, with some rise in mid- to high-level cloud cover expected this afternoon and evening.

Onshore flow components are rising, which means that boundary layer moisture patches of lower clouds are more likely to form in some of the more suitable places this evening, such as the area around the Monterey Peninsula.
