Low clouds in valley locations marked the beginning of Thursday but other than that offshore winds will help temps for most get into the 70s today, and not a lot of change on Friday other than onshore winds developing in the afternoon could return some marine low clouds to the coast in the evening into Saturday morning. Temps will fall a few degrees over that time frame. Sunday and Monday the offshore winds are back and we'll see plenty of 70s and generally clear skies. The larger question looms about rain chances next week. I don't think there is much of a chance until Friday at the earliest and models still steer the best chance north of the Central Coast but at least it is something to consider as the jet pattern looks a little friendlier down the road.
