Short-Lived Morning Showers

GOOD for all reporting stations.

Light rain is expected overnight! A cold front will move through Monterey Bay Area Thursday morning. Only light rains are expected, which will be felt more so the closer to the coast and the farther to the north you live. The next system will brush by on Saturday and may not produce anything but coastal drizzle, but temperatures will drop. Eventually, a stronger system will arrive early next week which could bring moderate rain to the region.

Thursday: We’ll break to partly cloudy conditions throughout the afternoon with coastal highs in the 60s and 60s-70s inland. Breezy in the valleys during the afternoon, then northerly winds pick up in the hills late.

Overnight: Mostly clear evening with low clouds / possible dense fog populating in the Santa Clara Valley as well as the greater Hollister area prior to sunrise. Overnight lows will drop down into the 40s for both coastal and inland areas.

Friday: Patchy low clouds & fog in the morning, then becoming mostly sunny. Cooler, with highs mainly in the 60s on the coast and 60s-70s inland.
 Clouds increase once again on Saturday with drizzle/sprinkles possible. Temps will be a bit cool this weekend. The next chance for rain arrives in the Monday/Tuesday timeframe.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 48ºF
HIGH: 68ºF
LOW: 43ºF
HIGH: 74ºF
