around. i've seen this pattern a couple times. it sits there, sits there, sits there and eventually moves. so partly sunny, mostly cloudy today, maybe a knew light showers popping up north and east. as that low moves out, high pressure. the next system develops offshore. timing is tough. looks like saturday morning coast and bay and saturday night that low finally moves. the key is when will it move. today some sun, clouds, but continued cool is the message. 50s, 60s, slightly warmer which might have a little bit more sun, just a little bit. mostly cloudy on friday. saturday morning looks like rain close to the coast and bay. saturday night and lingering into monday. what's happened recently, numerous bills aimed at tracking down on california lawmakers. and are you doing the shopping
