Highs will warm to near 70 degrees Friday. Areas prone to fog will likely see patchy fog develop in the overnights the next couple of days.
Ridge of high pressure will be at it's max Friday and Saturday, that is why we are expecting highs near 70 degrees. Because of the stable air mass and still some lingering moisture around we'll see that fog set up over low lying areas.
Ridge continues to weaken into the start of next week. By Wednesday clouds will begin to stream in and rain should arrive for folks to the west by the late night hours.
At this time the forecast calls for heavy rain to move in by Thursday. With nearly 7 days between now and then, we have plenty of time to tweak and fine tune the forecast in the meantime.
