Cooler Week Ahead

GOOD to MODERATE for all reporting stations.

A slightly more active weather pattern will continue during the next week. Temperatures cooled significantly on Monday and will level off over the next few days. A weak weather system will arrive on Tuesday morning. The system will bring clouds and maybe a few sprinkles, but that’s about it. Another system will arrive late Thursday into Friday and could bring some light rain at best along with interfering with lunar eclipse viewing! We’re also watching early next week for another weak weather system.

… for the lower valleys of Monterey & San Benito Counties and for cities around Monterey Bay through 11AM.

-Hazardous driving conditions due to low visibility.

-Patchy to areas of dense fog are expected at times through Tuesday morning. Prepare for rapid visibility reductions.
If driving, slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you.

Overnight: Scattered high clouds passing through and patchy dense fog possible along the coast and lower valleys. A few sprinkles possible. Expect lows in the low 50s on the coast and 40s to around 50ºF inland. Breezy northerly winds over the hills at times.

Tuesday: Mostly cloudy early with a few sprinkles possible, then becoming mostly sunny. Highs in the 60s on the coast—warmest on the north side of the bay--mid 60s to mid 70s inland. Breezy in the valleys for the afternoon and evening.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny. Slightly warmer on the coast with highs in the 60s to around 70ºF and slightly cooler inland with highs in the mid 60s to low 70s.

Extended: Expect seasonable to slightly cool weather for the rest of the week with most areas seeing highs in the 60s. A weak system may bring some light rain to mainly coastal areas early Friday morning. Clouds with that system will possibly interfere with the viewing of a partial lunar eclipse which will begin late Thursday night and last into Friday morning. At the moment, the coming weekend is looking dry and seasonable although something interesting may sneak in from the south on Monday.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 45ºF
HIGH: 65ºF
LOW: 40ºF
HIGH: 68ºF
