Temperate Tuesday

WEATHER STORY
After major heat incurred at the end of last week and muggy conditions wrapped up the weekend, we're now looking ahead to a very nice work week forecast. Temperatures are expected to be right at about normal values, although a mid week warm-up is expected to kick in on Wednesday afternoon. This will be short lived, and we'll be back to mild conditions headed into Father's Day Weekend.

AIR QUALITY: GOOD

***GALE WARNING***
… for near coastal waters from Point Pinos to Point Piedras Blancas (excluding Monterey Bay) through Wednesday at 3AM

-Northwest winds 20 to 30 kt with gusts up to 40 kt and  seas 8 to 10 feet at 10 seconds.

Strong winds will cause hazardous seas which could capsize or damage vessels and reduce visibility.

Mariners should alter plans to avoid these hazardous conditions. Remain in port, seek safe harbor, alter course, and/or secure the vessel for severe conditions.

Tuesday: An overall similar day to Monday, albeit just a bit warmer with mid to upper 80s inland and upper 60s for much of the coast. Sunshine and wind will persist.

Overnight: Some low cloud cover is possible, namely around the Monterey Peninsula. The interior and the northern side of Monterey Bay will likely remain quite clear. Lows will be a bit more comfortable in the mid to low 50s most spots.

Extended: By mid week, things will have warmed up once again. Inland is likely to see another round of 90s, and the coast will top out in the 70s. The heat will only last a day or two before temperatures cool back down into Father's Day Weekend.
