warm today with high pressure over the region. continued seasonably mild over the weekend with a gradual cooling trend back to normal early next week as dry conditions stay in place through wednesday. clouds increase by thursday leading to a chance of rain later thursday into friday. today should be the last day of well above average warmth as our fair weather maker will weaken creating a stronger seabreeze for the weekend. a nice weekend in store for those with outdoor plans both saturday and sunday. pattern remains benign early next week with continued dry weather and temps near or slightly above normal through about next wednesday. models continue to be pretty consistent in showing some warm showers developing later thursday into friday. confidence continues to increase on an early april rain event with best chances for the north bay and precipitation likely tapering off for the central coast. still lots of time and details to shake out but general idea of a good slug of warm advection rains sometime thursday night through friday followed by a cold frontal passage around next saturday is how things are currently timed out.
