No need to sugar coat it. This weekend's weather was absolutely spectacular. With highs barely touching 70 degrees and clear conditions, it was truly Chamber of Commerce weather. This week won't come close to matching the weekend. In fact, it is going to be a very up and down week weather wise.
Monday and Tuesday will be mild and cloudy with highs in the low 70s and lows in the upper 50s. It will feel probably more like March or April than January, but that is going to begin to change on Wednesday.

The clouds should begin to clear out a bit mid week with passage of a dry cool front. Highs Wednesday will be in the lower 60s and we can expect a chilly night around 40 degrees. Like Wednesday, Thursday will be partly cloudy and brisk with highs in the upper 50s. Winds will slowly begin to shift later in the day as an onshore flow ramps up.
By Friday, rain chances appear to increase ahead of another frontal boundary. Temperatures will remain in the 50s and as we head into the weekend, we could be in for some wet weather, at least Friday evening and Saturday morning.
But for the first real work week of the new year — you know you've been just fooling around since Christmas — it will be a mixed bag of sunshine and clouds with some cooler weather on the way.
