Forecast Discussion April 18 to April 23: Patchy morning fog will maintain cooler temperatures along the coast while inland daytime temperatures could climb as high as the 80’s through the weekend. An upper level trough passing through our region early Tuesday will bring with it a chance of rain through the end of the forecast period. The atmosphere should remain well mixed leading to GOOD air quality for both PM2.5 and ozone. This includes inland valleys such as the San Lorenzo where the seasonal transition to milder temperatures and shorter nights will bring about a reduction in the use of wood burning stoves and fireplaces.
