Air Quality Report (As of 7:00AM)
All reporting stations good to moderate
Temperatures will continue to slide downward as high pressure weakens this week. Nearing the end of the week, a weather system will swing in from the west. However, it is becoming more apparent that the system will split, directing some of its energy to our north and some to our south. The end result will be no beneficial rainfall here on the Central Coast—perhaps just some of our usual drizzle. High pressure will rebuild next week with warmer, dryer conditions returning.
Thursday: Patchy low clouds on the coast with a few high clouds passing through. Cool again, with coastal highs in the upper 50s to 60s and 70s to low 80s inland. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon.
Overnight: Widespread low clouds with patchy fog—pushing deeper into inland valleys. Expect coastal lows in the mid to upper 50s with 40s for inland valleys and 50s up in the hills.
Friday: Widespread low clouds in the morning with patchy drizzle, then breaking to partly cloudy skies across the region in the afternoon. Slightly warmer on the coast with 60s to low 70s but continued cool inland with mainly 70s to low 80s.
Extended: Partly cloudy, breezy, and slightly cool conditions expected on Saturday, then temperatures will begin to warm up and skies clear out from Sunday into early next week. High temperatures return to above normal levels Monday through at least Wednesday.
