Cool n Breezy Following Overnight Showers

GOOD for all reporting stations.

A Pacific storm accompanied by a moderate atmospheric river brought rain to the region along with gusty winds Monday overnight into Tuesday morning. The coastal mountains and even some inland areas accumulated well over an inch of precipitation. A few lingering showers are possible through mid-day Tuesday, after which we’ll begin a clearing and warming trend. A ridge of high pressure will then build in for the latter portion of the week and even into the weekend bringing warmer than normal days with accompanying sunshine. No moisture is in the forecast for the foreseeable future.

Tuesday: Becoming partly cloudy with a few lingering showers. Highs mainly in the 60s. Breezy at times.

Overnight: Low temperatures will sit in the high 40s to low 50s. High clouds will clear out as thick, low clouds simultaneously form along the coast on the east side of Monterey Bay, down the Salinas Valley, and up the Santa Clara Valley toward San Jose.

Wednesday: Fog on the coast and valleys in the morning, becoming sunny in the afternoon. Warmer, with highs in the 60s-70s. Breezy at times inland.
Extended: Temperatures will slowly climb into the weekend under mostly sunny skies. Highs should be back around normal by Thursday and then above Friday through Sunday. A weak weather system will slide through on Monday which may bring some light precipitation, but a lot can change this far out.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 46ºF
HIGH: 67ºF
LOW: 42ºF
HIGH: 71ºF
