Heat and humidity increase over the weekend along with a chance for showers and thunderstorms
Warm temperatures and scattered showers for Saturday
As coastal fog burns off early and daytime heating begins, Saturday will mark the start of a warming trend across the state continuing into next week. Temperatures will be in the 70’s although a few interior locations, especially towards the south are likely to reach the 80’s. The exception will be along the coast where a sea breeze will set up, keeping temperatures cooler. As pockets of shortwave energy at 500mb pass through the area, showers will develop in the afternoon primarily in the northern regions. These showers, however, will likely not bring any significant relief to ongoing drought conditions.
