If I Had A Cloud For Every Time I Heard That One

Don’t expect a lot of change for coastal areas in the coming days. We will continue to see slightly cool temperatures and coastal clouds into next week with only periodic sunshine. Inland areas will struggle to reach seasonal highs as the marine layer will be just deep enough to keep cooler than normal air in the more populated valleys. Some warming possible toward the end of next week as high pressure strengthens off to our east.

Overnight: Widespread low clouds for the coast and inland valleys. Coastal lows in the mid-50s with mid-40s to mid-50s inland.

Monday: Patchy low clouds on the coast and sunny inland. Highs on the coast will be in the 60s to low 70s with inland spots in the upper 70s to mid 90s.
Extended: Temperatures slowly warm up through the end up the week.


This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 54ºF
HIGH: 69ºF

LOW: 51ºF
HIGH: 86ºF


-The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for August 3rd - 9th 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 Winter: La Niña Watch

-Area drought status:
Moderate drought for much of Santa Cruz & Santa Clara Counties, Abnormally dry on the east shore of the bay into San Benito County. No drought classification for much of Monterey County outside of the Gabilan Range.
