Some Heat Relief Coming

Relentless heat once again but relief is on the way Sunday with increasing clouds, cooler air and rain chances into early next week. Salinas reached 95 Saturday, breaking the current record of 94 degrees, set back in 1996. King City hit 100 degrees today, just shy of tying the current record high of 102 in 1996. . High pressure will weaken and move out allowing for an increase in clouds and rain chances especially late Sunday into early next week. Back to reality!

The Heat Advisory was canceled a few hours early as cooler air and sight of coastal clouds moving in! Sunday will still be warm and above average with a minor heat risk.


Overnight: Clear to partly cloudy with lows in mid to upper 50s to 60s with a few 70s inland.

Sunday: Mostly sunny with increasing clouds and high temps noticeably cooler, only climing into the 60s to 70s coastal and 80s with a few 90s inland. Breezy NW winds by the afternoon in the valleys and coastal. Slight chance for light rain overnight into Monday morning.

Monday: Light rain/drizzle possible early and cooler yet with clouds and slight chance of light rain. Highs in mid 60s to low 70s coastal and 70s and 80s inland.

Extended. Clouds and the marine layer returns with temperatures getting back to normal for this time of the year. Sunny for most of next week, cooler with highs 60s and mainly 70s across the coast.
