Cooler Air Coming

Inland heat will continue through the weekend with highs for most areas in the 90s-100s.  Bradley this Saturday afternoon at 110 degrees! The coastal (inland) valleys will be cooler with the sea breeze keeping temperatures in the 80s, however. At the coast, it will actually be pretty nice with only patchy low clouds/fog and highs in the 60s-70s. The ridge of high pressure responsible for the second round of intense heat will slide east, making way for some cooler air to filter in from the north beginning Sunday. The pattern will shift and a cooling trend will start for the inland area. Next week will be cooler inland.

 Good to Moderate

**Gale Warning** effect until 3 a.m. Monday for Point Pinos to Point Piedras Blancas
...until 3 p.m. Sunday for waters from Pigeon Point to Point Pinos 10-60 NM.
...northwest winds 15-25 kt with gusts up to 40 kt and seas 6 to 11 feet.
...strong winds will cause hazardous seas which could capsize, damage vessels and reduce visibility. Mariners should alter plans.

Sunday: Scattered high clouds and cooler. High temps will be 3 to 8 degrees cooler. The marine layer will continue with steady temps at the coast.

Monday: A deeper marine layer and low clouds expected at the coast as pattern changes, and inland temps will continue to trend downward so continuing to cool a bit.

Extended:: By Tuesday we may see moisture stream up from the southeast that will lead to possible instability and precipitation for higher elevations but so far looks to stay to our east but watching. Also onshore winds will pick up with gale force gusts over coastal waters. Light southerly swell will persist through next week as well as fog.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 54ºF
HIGH: 69ºF

LOW: 53ºF
HIGH: 87ºF

-The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for July 28th – August 3rd calls for the likelihood of ABOVE normal temperatures and near normal precipitation. Note: Little to no precipitation typically falls this time of year.

- ENSO (El Niño/La Niña) STATUS:
