Saturday Rain, Windy and Cool

Turning cloudy and cooler with rain on the way. Clouds will increase into the overnight with some light rain possible, especially north of Monterey Bay, then we’ll see scattered rain showers Saturday and windy. A trough of low pressure will dig down the coast bringing a much cooler air mass and a decent tap of moisture. It will be over us on Saturday and the unstable atmosphere will be ripe with showers and perhaps a thundershower or two. The trough will begin to move east on Sunday, but a shower or two may linger behind with gradual clearing and sunshine will increase. Then, high pressure builds in from the west and light offshore flow will warm temperatures significantly next week!


Overnight: Partly cloudy, then mostly cloudy heading into the evening. Drizzle is possible before rounds of showers move in early morning. Showers will be scattered with mainly light rain. However, individual cells could produce brief moderate rain and gusty winds. Lows will be warmer overnight due to cloud cover, expect temps in the mid to upper 50s across the area.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and a chance for a thundershower. Cool day, highs in the 60s for most areas, with a few 70s inland. Rain accumulation 0.05-0.10” for most areas, but some spots may approach a quarter of an inch in the mountains. Breezy, gusty at times.

Sunday: Patchy fog early then a drier day with gradual clearing skies and sunny in the afternoon. Winds will turn light and variable in the evening. Coastal highs in the mid to upper 60s and mainly 70s inland.

Extended: Dry with sunshine and much warmer temps by Tuesday which may stay that way through the end of the week High temps will rise to above normal in most locations so back to summer! 

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 53ºF
HIGH: 70ºF
