Warm Week Ahead

Air Quality Report (As of 7:00AM)
All reporting stations are good to moderate.

High pressure rapidly builds out of the weekend with light offshore flow continuing for most of next week. Temperatures will remain above normal for the entire week—along with sunny and very dry conditions. With light offshore flow, some smoke may find its way back to our area. Fire danger will also be higher locally. Some cooling is expected next weekend as a sub-tropical low weakens the ridge from the south. It will also likely throw some clouds our way.

Monday: Mostly sunny and warmer. Expect coastal highs in the mid-70s to mid-80s and mid-80s to mid-90s inland. A few low clouds possible along the outer Monterey Coast late. Breezy at times over the ridgetops and the sea breeze will also pick up for near-coastal valleys in the afternoon and early evening. A bit of high smoke possible.

Overnight: Mostly clear, with a few low clouds possible. Expect coastal lows in the mid to upper 50s with upper 40s to low 50s inland.

Tuesday: Mostly sunny and warmer yet. Expect coastal highs in the mid-70s to upper 80s and mid-80s to mid-90s inland. A few low clouds possible along the outer Monterey Coast late. Breezy at times over the ridgetops and the sea breeze will also pick up for near-coastal valleys in the afternoon and early evening. Hazy with high smoke drifting through.
 
Extended: Light offshore flow will continue for the remainder of the week with coastal highs in the 70s to low 90s and widespread 80s to around 100ºF inland. Winds may be breezy over the mountains at times and a light sea breeze will return to the coast in the afternoons. Some cooling expected next weekend as a low moves in from the south.ADVERTISING
