HIGH PRESSURE MOVES OFF THE COAST ON FRIDAY... A COLD FRONT APPROACHES SATURDAY BUT MAY ONLY BRING WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS
The intense heat earlier this week is gone but temperatures are still a bit above normal. The cold front that ended the heat wave didn't bring us any rain and that is quite unfortunate since we haven't had significant rainfall since May 28th. Friday's weather will be similar to the weather on Thursday. A light onshore flow will make coastal areas a bit cooler than inland areas. On Saturday, a cold front will be approaching bringing us a slight chance of an isolated thunderstorm. The NWS only gives us a 20% chance Saturday night and Sunday. We may see another chance of showers on Tuesday. I'll have a full post on Saturday.
** In the event of severe weather in you area, please consult the official National Weather Service forecast office for any severe weather watches or warnings in your area at Weather.gov.
