Winter Warmer

Air Quality Report (As of 8:30pm)
Good to moderate for all reporting areas.


Weather Story: Building high pressure from the south is working against any further rain chances this week. The next system on Friday may only bring light rain at best to the Monterey Bay northward. The ridge now looks like it will strengthen next week, bringing warm, dry conditions. Highs greater than 10ºF above normal will be possible

Overnight: Decreasing clouds. Patchy valley fog possible. Expect coastal lows in the upper 30s to low 40s with mainly 30s inland.

Thursday: A few low clouds near the coast, otherwise partly cloudy with scattered high clouds. Slightly warmer, with highs in the 60s for most places. Clouds increase late.

Friday: A chance of rain in the morning, then becoming partly cloudy. Rain chances will be higher farthest to the north and closest to the coast. Mild, with highs mainly in the upper 50s to 60s.

Extended:  Dry conditions can be expected through the weekend into next week. Building high pressure may send temperatures into the 70s for some areas Tuesday/Wednesday. Most areas will see highs of 10ºF above normal for this time of year.
