WEATHER STORY
The ridge of high pressure is beginning to ease as we head into Father’s Day, allowing for deeper, cooler onshore flow and a gradual cool down for most portions of the Central Coast. Temperatures returning to or even dipping slightly below normal for some locations. The return of low clouds and patchy morning fog possible along the coast and into the Santa Cruz Mountains through the early part of next week as an upper low approaches.

Sunday: Partly cloudy and cooler on the coast with highs mainly in the 60s. Inland areas will remain sunny and warm with highs ranging from the 70s to low 100s depending on proximity to the coast. The sea breeze will be gusty as it pushes into inland valleys in the afternoon.

Overnight: Lows clouds push back in along the coast and down the Salinas Valley, with patchy fog possible. Lows mostly in the 50s with a few low 60s.

Extended: The cooling trend will continue through the end of the week with increasing low clouds expected on the coast. However, conditions look to remain dry apart from any light drizzle. Friday into the weekend, a ridge of high pressure will rebuild over the Southwest bringing with it warmer temperatures and the return of above-average temperatures, especially for inland locations.
