The remainder of the week is looking to be mild with just some fog near the coast in the mornings.
Any outdoor plans this week should be quite pleasant as a combination of hot air inland and the storms over the higher elevations of the Rockies will stay well to the east. Anyone looking to be outside should enjoy the nice and near-normal weather the next several days.
Daytime temperatures will stay in the upper 70s to lower and mid-80s through Friday. Overnight temperatures will dip into the lower 60s.
This overall pattern looks to continue through the end of the week before a weak storm over northern California could bring some slightly cooler temperatures to the area for the end of the week and into the weekend.
Until the cooler weather and possibly more in the way of clouds comes through though, it looks to be quite a comfortable week for those looking for sunshine and comfortably mild temperatures.
