Short-Term Forecast 
Model agreement on the fine details remains poor, but the beginning of a much needed pattern change is already getting underway.  This is the result of a weakening storm system that is moving inland off the Pacific.  This will allow for more cloud cover and an increased chance for some scattered showers and thunderstorms as we progress through Thursday.  Then we'll enjoy some cooler temperatures under more of a marine influence on Friday, accompanied by a slight chance of a shower.  Minor disturbances spinning around the decaying storm will continue to result in the chance of a few scattered showers or thunderstorms through the weekend, but unfortunately, this does not look like a widespread precipitation event.  Instead, the cooler temperatures and breezy conditions will be the bigger stories with readings actually coming in below normal for a change.  

Long-Term Forecast
 
Temperatures will begin to warm again next week, but model agreement deteriorates even further in regards to the overall pattern.  Models continue to swing back and forth, with some forecasting hot high pressure along with rising temperatures, while others point toward a more unsettled pattern moving south out of Canada during the latter half of the week.  That more unsettled pattern (if it develops) would be the result of a strong high pressure ridge building further west out over the eastern Pacific, leaving our area influenced by more of a northerly flow under its eastern flank.
