Quiet, Seasonal Weekend

The current quiet weather pattern will finish out the weekend with no real changes expected. However, subtle movements may have bigger changes for us in the coming week. The ridge to our southeast nudges back into the weekend with a warmer, sunnier trend. We’ll swing back the other way next week with a much cooler pattern.


Overnight: Low clouds and patchy fog will show back up around the coast, so expect am gray coastal skies. Some of the low clouds will push a bit inland to Salinas and the northern portion of the Salinas Valley. Lows will be widespread 50s. Hills in the 60s.

Sunday: More of the same with coastal clouds and patchy fog giving way to sunshine and seasonal temps along the coast with low to mid 60s and 70s farther inland, with sunny and hot conditions reaching the 80s, 90s and some triple digits for the interior locations. Breezy onshore winds will continue in the coastal areas and Salinas valley becoming gusty late afternoon.

Monday: Temps will slowly begin to trend cooler with more dry quiet weather. Expect Coastal clouds/fog overnight and early morning with afternoon sunshine, and sunny and still very warm for inland communities.

Extended: Tuesday through Thursday more widespread cooling will take place, especially inland where daytime high temps could be 5-10 degrees below normal for early August.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 55ºF
HIGH: 68ºF

LOW: 53ºF
HIGH: 86ºF
