Comfortable Weekend Ahead of a Slight Cooldown

WEATHER STORY

The strong upper-level ridge of high pressure has weakened. Temperatures through the weekend will ease for inland locations. Coastal temperatures, on the other hand, will continue to hover around seasonable averages. With a zonal flow, temperatures won't bounce around much this weekend.

Overnight: Another round of widespread low clouds. Patchy fog along the coast possible. Lows mainly in the upper 40s to low 50s.

Saturday: Clouds will slowly taper off in the morning. Inland locations will see mostly sunny skies a few linger clouds possible. Coastal locations will remain mostly sunny, especially on the north side of the bay. However, the Monterey Penisula will see patchy low clouds. Temperatures will still be warm for interior portions of South Monterey County, but cooler from previous days. No triple digits expected. Highs will be in the 50's and 60s for the south side of the bay, 60s and 70s for the north side, with 80s-90s inland. A light breeze at times along the coast, gusty inland during the late afternoon/ early evening.

Extended Forecast: A through of low pressure will start to dig down northwest of the state. Temperatures inland will drop at or below seasonable starting early next week, while coastal locations could drop slightly below normal. We'll be between the two systems, with a ridge to our east, which could increase winds for both the coast and valleys. The marine layer will also deepen with the strengthening of onshore flow, which could mean more gray skies along the coast pushing slightly inland.
