A Respite From May Gray?

Changes are coming as we move into the work week. A trough of low pressure will slowly dip down the West Coast putting an end to the inland heat. Meanwhile, the cooler air aloft will help destabilize the marine inversion which will likely lead to earlier clear-outs on the coast and increased sunshine. This will mean warmer coastal weather!

Good to Moderate

Overnight: Overcast for the coast and inland valleys. Patchy drizzle around the bay. Patchy fog inland and in the coastal hills. Lows in the low 50s for coastal areas, mid 40s to low 50s inland.

Tuesday: Remaining mostly cloudy and cooler on the coast with highs in the 50s to mid 60s. Much cooler inland as well with mostly sunny skies but highs in the mid 60s to upper 70s. Breezy for coastal areas, becoming windy for inland valleys later in the day.

Wednesday: Low clouds early, then becoming partly cloudy on the coast in the afternoon and sunny inland. Slightly warmer on the coast with highs mainly in the 60s, but continued cool inland with 60s-70s. Breezy on the coast in the afternoon, becoming windy for inland valleys late in the afternoon/early evening.

Extended: A deeper, well-mixed marine layer will mean warmer temps on the coast for the rest of the week. Inland areas that originally cooled on Tuesday will start to warm back up as well, reaching normal values by Friday and exceeding them into the weekend.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 50ºF
HIGH: 66ºF

LOW: 48ºF
HIGH: 77ºF


-The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for May 30th – June 5th calls for the likelihood of BELOW normal temperatures and near normal precipitation.

- El Niño/La Niña STATUS: 
El Niño Watch
- Forecast: Neutral through the end of spring with El Niño developing this summer.
