Nice Day; Another Cool Evening

Since Fall officially began today, we've got seasonally-appropriate weather on tap as fog gives way to some bright skies for the next couple of days. Things get drearier by weekend, however, as the remnants of Tropical Depression Beta slowly creep east and provide for some clouds and rain. Things should clear out by Sunday into the week as Beta finally departs offshore.

Forecast Discussion

A high pressure wedge continues to dominate the weather for the next day or so, providing crisp seasonally appropriate air and minimal clouds; this evening and Wednesday look best for any outdoor activities as whatever is left of Beta starts to sneak in by Wednesday night.

Beta brings increasing rain chances late Thursday and Friday, with showers lingering into Saturday as an associated cold front trails behind it. Things get tricky here in terms of timing/amounts of rainfall as the low is not well organized at this point...

By early next week, however, more clearing should return as a brief ridge of high pressure sets in before another long-term front is possible.
