So much attention has been focused on southeastern Texas and Harvey – and rightfully so, of course- that there is almost no concept of what the whether is doing elsewhere right now. A preview: it’s hot out west.
At 948PM, PT, Watsonville/Santa Cruz was reporting overcast skies with fog and a temperature of 59 degrees. Heat advisories were out for the interior Valley, but from San Francisco Bay to Monterey Bay, Pacific flow, clouds and morning and evening fog were all conspiring to keep temperatures livable. In fact, the heat advisories and red flag warnings have all been stripped away from the Bay area.
There is a weak trough moving through upper levels of the atmosphere, and will traverse California through the day Wednesday, and should ultimately lead to a dissipation of the fog and low clouds, at least in the later evening on Wednesday. Temperatures inland will respond by cooling off, but with fewer clouds, it may warm slightly along the coast with less afternoon overcast.

Temperatures are all over the map. It will depend greatly on what the clouds do along the coast. Speaking of, here is the satellite, with some low overcast barely showing up around Monterey Bay.
