The low has pushed northward and is now resting west of Vancouver Island where it will drift around before finally move northeastward into Canada. It does appear to drag a weak front across the area giving us a chance of patchy drizzle tonight into tomorrow morning so increasing clouds tonight with that chance of drizzle thru tomorrow morning, winds tonight becoming calm, lows near 53.

Tomorrow starts out cloudy with patchy fog and drizzle but becomes mostly sunny in the afternoon, winds becoming westerly 5-10, highs near 66, some clouds return tomorrow night, calm winds again, lows near 53.

The ridge of high pressure starts to build back in Saturday but we stay mostly cloudy and 68, but conditions improve that night with partly cloudy skies, the low near 52. By Sunday we see mostly sunny skies, the high up near 72, mostly clear that night, lows near 53.

It is starting to look like we are in for another heatwave for next week, here in the valley; along the coast we stay fair, dry and mild with the highs around 73 Monday, up to near 76 Tuesday then back down to near 75 Wednesday. The valley is looking at the mid 90s with some areas possibly reaching into the 100s again. A warm summer indeed. We keep the partly cloudy nights, lows near 55.
