Weekend forecast: mild at the coast & below normal temps inland

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

An upper level low just to the North of us is going to continue bringing below normal temperatures to most of the region through the weekend. We will continue to see fog and low clouds overnight into the morning hours, especially for the coastal areas. Temperatures will likely warm to near normal early next week and that low pressure system moves off to the East and high pressure briefly returns. There is another trough of a low pressure system that may bring another cooling trend for the second half of next week.

From above normal temperatures to below normal, with a chance for some drizzle

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

A low pressure sy stem to the north of us and onshore flow will bring drastically cooler conditions through Saturday. We will also see increased low clouds and some dense fog. We do have a chance for some drizzle overnight with the deep marine layer. Temperatures will remain below normal for a few days and then we will seen a warming trend starting Sunday. We will warm to above normal temperatures again early next week as a high pressure system moves in.

Cooler weather developing Wednesday evening into Thursday

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

A low pressure system off the Northern California coastline will slide south and produce showers as far south as Monterey County, however the local impact will be diminished.

For the Central Coast expect a lot more cloud cover on Thursday and areas of drizzle (or even a light shower), and some coastal areas will see little clearing while the coastal and interior valleys have a party cloudy day.

Temperatures will take a big tumble. Inland highs fall into the 80s (from the 90 and 100 range they have been hovering in) and coastal valleys will drop into the 70s while beaches likely see lower 60s.

More overnight clouds Thursday into Friday with better afternoon clearing on Friday, and perhaps a few degrees of warming over Thursday’s highs.

High pressure builds back in over the weekend to return interior temps back into the 90s before the weekend ends and that ridge looks to stay in place much of next week.

Temps cooling down mid-week

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

A cool-down will be developing over the next few days as a low pressure system passes us to the north.

In Northern CA rain is likely but around here the cold front will likely only increase clouds and at best produce some spots of drizzle at the coast with the heavier marine low clouds expected Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

Otherwise partly cloudy and cooler conditions are in my forecast. Finally inland highs will drop under 90 by Thursday, and coastal valleys drop into the 70s over this timeframe.

Some high clouds from Odile may stream through the area on Friday but the rains associated with that look to hit southern Arizona, even missing much of So Cal.

High pressure builds again during the weekend into early next week, so we warm up, especially inland again.
