Cooling Slightly, Then Watching For Rain

Air Quality (as of 8:00AM):
Good to moderate for all reporting stations.

Weather Story: High pressure weakens slightly as we head into the work week, allowing for a weak weather system to pass by. It will bring a slight chance of showers (probably more like sprinkles!) but widespread rain is not expected. A more active weather pattern is seeming more likely toward the end of the week with stronger systems coming through Thursday and Saturday.

Monday: Increasing high clouds, thickening further late. Cooler, with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. A few spots in southern Monterey County may make it into the mid to upper 60s.

Overnight: Overcasted skies with some patchy fog and drizzle possible. Expect coastal lows in the 40s with 30s-40s inland.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy with widespread high clouds. A few sprinkles possible. Highs in the mid 50s to low 60s.

Extended: We’ll clear out a bit on Wednesday with a slight warm up as well. Then, a weather system will slide through on Thursday—likely bringing light rain to the region. Another system will follow on Saturday. Temperatures will remain seasonable to slightly cool during the period.
