Mild for Memorial Day Weekend

The weak system that drifted over the region this afternoon will be followed by cold, gusty northwesterly flow for the remainder of the holiday weekend. Coastal areas will be especially impacted with gusty winds and below normal highs. However, noticeable warming is then expected by mid-week, especially for inland cities. Stay tuned to the forecast for fire alerts that may pop up!


Overnight: Low clouds will gradually blanket the majority of the region, with some drizzle possible within Monterey County. Minor patchy fog is possible over the hills in the early morning, but will quickly clear out. Overnight lows will be slightly cooler in the mid to upper 40s for most spots.

Sunday: Cool, gusty winds are expected regionwide. Otherwise, expect sunshine and blue skies! Coastal areas may wake up to patchy low cloudcover, but this will clear out by afternoon with temperatures topping out in the mid to lower 60s. Inland spots will be a bit warmer in the 70s.

Monday (Memorial Day): Inland areas will warm slightly, while coastal temperatures will largely feel the same. Cool, gusty winds may cause difficulties for holiday picnics!

 Gusty northwesterly onshore winds will attempt to extend their stay through Tuesday. Expect coastal highs in the lower 70s, with mainly upper 70s to 80s inland. Winds will be strongest in the afternoons. Noticeable warming is expected to occur mid week.
