Blustery Days

High pressure edges starting Monday and after a couple of cool mornings, you can expect warm afternoons. Winds will likely still be a bit gusty, then ease by mid-week. The warmer weather will last until late in the week when the next weather system glides by to the north. It may be close enough to produce some light precipitation on the coast early Saturday.

Overnight: Mostly clear and cooler with coastal lows in the 40s to around 50ºF and inland lows in the upper 30s to 40s.

Monday: A few, thin high clouds passing through, otherwise mostly sunny with gusty northwesterly onshore winds. Warmer, with coastal highs in the mid 60s to around 80ºF--warmest on the Santa Cruz side of the bay--and upper 70s to upper 80s inland.

Extended: Northwesterly onshore winds will continue into Tuesday and Wednesday, slowly easing, but because of high pressure, we'll warm up anyway with highs expected to be above normal both on the coast and inland through Thursday. With the dryer air mass in place, lows may feel a little cool early in the week. A weather system will approach from the west late in the week, cooling us down and potentially bringing some light precip to the coast Saturday morning.


This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 51ºF
HIGH: 67ºF

LOW: 47ºF
HIGH: 80ºF


-The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for June 1th-21st calls for the likelihood of ABOVE normal temperatures and near normal precipitation. Note: Little to no precipitation typically falls this time of year.

-El Niño/La Niña STATUS: Neutral
-Forecast into Summer: Neutral
-Forecast into Winter: Trending toward La Niña
