Clear, Sunny Sunday

AIR QUALITY:
GOOD for all reporting stations.

WEATHER STORY
Temperatures warm this weekend under mostly sunny skies. Light offshore winds are expected in the hills Saturday into early Sunday. The warmer, dryer trend will continue into Monday. We're watching a weak system on Tuesday, but impacts look minimal. There is a chance of wet weather the weekend following Turkey day too, but a lot can change before then.

Sunday: Breezy offshore winds over the hills. Sunny and warmer with highs in the 60s-70s.

Overnight: Clear skies overnight will mean cooler temperatures. We'll see mostly 40s for coastal and inland locations. A few inland locations could even drop into the upper 30s.

Monday: This nice trend will lead us into the first day of Thanksgiving week. Temperatures will be a few more degrees warmer, under clear skies. However, southern portions of Monterey and San Benito County could see increasing high clouds due to a surge of moisture from the south. Not expecting any rain, but we will continue to track this.

Extended:  Temperatures will drop back to seasonable to even slightly cool, as a weather system passes by on Tuesday followed by a cooler air mass. As the system brushes by expect gusty conditions at times. The system will also bring an increase in clouds, which will thin out as we head into Thanksgiving. Temps, however, will remain cool.
