High temperatures and dense fog will be this week’s weather highlights, as two ridges of high pressure remain almost stationary over central California and the southwest. These high pressure ridges are driving the winter storm track north, where the Pacific Northwest is experiencing heavy rains. The warmest day of the week will be Tuesday with a highs in the low to mid eighties across the county. Temps will remain steady in the upper seventies to low eighties for the remainder of the week. The threat for dense nighttime and early morning fog will also persist through the week. The high pressure ridges will be forced out of position next week, and the movement of a low pressure system will provide a chance for rainfall next week as well as a return to seasonal temperatures.
