Bay area in unusual weather pattern

Florida, USA
It's usually on the dry side as they move into April, with low humidity and bright cloudless skies. But a high pressure system in the northeast Atlantic isn't in its normal location for this time of year, making conditions more humid and setting the stage for a chance of rain all the way through this Sunday.
