Rain showers will continue into early Saturday with the best chance of rain closer to the coast before ending Saturday morning. Clouds will gradually clear later in the day with a cool north wind which will keep afternoon temperatures in the lower 60s. As the drier air moves in, skies will clear and it will be cold Saturday night with lows in the upper 30s to lower 40s. Sunday will be sunny with a mild afternoon as highs reach the mid to upper 60s with light northerly winds.
Low level moisture will increase starting Monday as winds shift to the southeast which will cause areas of fog to develop Monday night, becoming more widespread Tuesday and Wednesday nights with dense fog possible. Days will warm into the mid to upper 70s by Christmas with dry weather most of next week. A weak cold front will bring a chance of showers next Friday.
