A recess from rain! Other than some morning fog expect sun today and tomorrow with highs edging up into the mid and upper 50s. Offshore wind from the east and northeast at 5-10 mph will help keep us dry at least through Thursday, although I see more clouds arriving by then. Look for a chance of rain showers returning Friday. Lows drop into the 40s.
