Mild, Seasonable Sunday

As the weekend comes to a close, a trough over the Pacific will prevent the ridge from gaining too much strength but a stronger warming trend kicks off Tuesday. Inland areas will climb back above normal for this time of year, however, a shallow marine layer will moderate coastal temps. No rain expected outside of any coastal drizzle. There are some indications that the ridge will really strengthen by mid-week with some serious heat for inland areas. Interestingly, some solutions show moisture streaming in from the south around the high which will need to be watched.


Sunday: The marine layer will keep a few low clouds on the coast but skies will be otherwise sunny. Temperatures will be near normal for most of the Central Coast. Upper 60s to 70s along the coast, 70s and 80s inland, South Monterey County could see a few 90s. Breezy to windy in the afternoon and early evening, especially for inland valleys.

Overnight: Low clouds push back inland, patchy fog possible along the coast and interior valleys. Temperatures will be mild, expect mostly in the 50s.

Extended: By the end of the week, temperatures will start to ease inland as we head into next weekend. The ridge will slightly weaken, as an upper-level trough push southward.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 52ºF
HIGH: 68ºF
LOW: 49ºF
HIGH: 81ºF
