Conditions have dried out for Sunday and the remainder of the weekend will stay warm with high temperatures hovering around 80 F. As mentioned in the previous forecasts, for Saturday expect surface winds from the north to northwest as due to the anti-cyclonic rotation around a surface high pressure system over the Pacific Ocean. Low level winds from the west will result in mostly cloudy skies during the morning; winds will shift to the north to northwest during the afternoon. An upper level trough is still anticipated to be located over the Pacific, causing winds from the southwest over the region and ultimately mostly cloudy skies will be present through the afternoon. For Sunday, recent model runs have shown low level winds more from the northwest, which will cause drier air and clearer conditions through the day. However, with the region still on the downstream of the upper level trough's axis, partly to mostly cloudy conditions will likely persist.
