Wagstaffe's Weather: Last of the blue skies on Friday

Our high pressure will hold for one more day across the South Coast, but will break down for the weekend, unfortunately.

It's another frosty start to the day across the South Coast.

Watch out for slippery sidewalks and roads through the early morning hours on Friday, with temperatures getting down close to the freezing mark.

However, afternoon highs will warm up nicely through the day — 12 C for the airport and 16 C inland, just a touch warmer than Thursday.

The sunshine will also be glorious once again. But, high clouds will start to move in for the evening hours.

Clouds will continue to increase throughout the day on Saturday, but there is a good chance we will stay dry.

Rain is back for Sunday, and will stick around for much of next week. 

It was a nice taste of Spring while it lasted, and in case you were wondering: the Vernal (Spring) Equinox officially takes place Saturday at 9:30 pm PDT, when we'll get almost equal length day and night.
