California Warmth Fades This Weekend; A Drier Pattern Overall Out West

As the month of April continues to chug along, the weather maps are looking more and more like the end of the wet season. Dry weather is starting to take hold. Thursday will likely be the warmest day of the week along the California coast, with highs reach the 70s in San Francisco and the 80s in Downtown Los Angeles. Across the interior, Friday could be even a touch warmer with temperatures approaching record levels in places like Merced and Fresno.
