A slight warming trend on the way

PACIFIC SANTA CLARA VALLEY INCLUDING MORGAN HILL AND GILROY MOST WEATHER TALK FOR THE LAST WEEK HAVE BEEN ABOUT A LOW OVER THE PACIFIC OCEAN, JUST OFF THE CALIFORNIA COASTLINE, FOR WHAT SEEMS LIKE THE BETTER PART OF A WEEK IF NOT LONGER. THE CENTRAL CIRCULATION OF THE LOW IS FINALLY PASSED THE CA/OR BORDER AND IS WEST OF MEDFORD. THIS LOW WILL SLOWLY CONTINUE ITS TRACK NORTHWARD TO MERGE WITH THE MEAN WESTERLY FLOW OVER CANADA. WHAT DOES THIS LOW EXITING CALIFORNIA MEAN FOR THE OUR AREA? IT MEANS THAT DRIVING WEATHER ELEMENT WILL BE THE HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE OVER ARIZONA. CURRENTLY IT RESULTS IN CONTINUED ONSHORE FLOW AND SEASONAL NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THE REGION. HOWEVER, MODELS HAVE BEEN CONSISTENT IN STRENGTHEN AND BECOME LARGER IN AREAL AREA OVER THE WEEKEND. THIS WILL RESULT IN A SLIGHT AND GRADUAL WARMING TREND, MAINLY FOR INTERIOR LOCATIONS WARMING INTO THE 80S OVER THE WEEKEND. WHAT IS INTERESTING TO NOTE IS THE LACK OF COASTAL STRATUS THIIS WEEK. IT HAS NOT BEEN A TRADITIONAL THICK BLANKET OF STRATUS, BUT MORE PATCHY BROKEN AREAS OF STRATUS. THIS GROWING HIGH PRESSURE WILL LIKELY COMPRESS THE MARINE LAYER FORCING IT TO BE CONFINED TO THE CLOSER TO THE COASTLINE ALLOWING INLAND AREAS TO BE SLIGHTLY DRIER THAN WHAT HAS BEEN PRESENT. THAT BEING SAID, THE MARINE LAYERS PRESENCE HAS HELPED DAMPEN FUELS AND THERE ARE NO FIRE CONCERNS AT THIS TIME WITH THE GROWING HIGH PRESSURE. HIGH PRESSURE IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO GROW THROUGH NEXT WEEK. SUGGESTING THAT WEDNESDAY THE 17TH COULD BE THE WARMEST DAY OF THE WEEK. ONSHORE FLOW WILL HELP KEEP THE COASTLINE AROUND THE 70S, BUT INLAND AREAS HAVE A HIGHER PROBABILITY OF REACHING THE 90S NEXT WEEK. TRIPLE DIGITS MAY BE POSSIBLE FOR FAR INTERIOR AREAS CLOSEST TO THE CENTRAL VALLEY, BUT CONFIDENCE IS NOT HIGH ON THAT AT THIS TIME. THE LONG STORY SHORT IS SIMPLY CONTINUAL GRADUAL SUMMERTIME WARMING THROUGH NEXT WEEK.
