Gray Start to the Day Will Give Way to a Sunny Afternoon

A fairly complex weather pattern will lead to fairly tranquil weather in the coming days. Sandwiched in between a deep trough over the North Pacific and the proto-monsoonal high over the Four Corners, the air mass over us will remain warm for the next week or so. However, coastal winds will remain onshore for the most part which will keep some low cloud cover and cooler, but seasonable temperatures likely. While no rain is likely over the next seven days, it’s always possible to squeeze a little drizzle out of the marine layer stratus.


Tuesday: Slightly warmer and sunnier for most areas. Highs in the 60s to low 70s on the coast and upper 70s to mid 90s inland. Breezy on the coast early afternoon, then becoming windy in the valleys late.

Overnight: Low clouds will return to the coast. Though not as widespread, low clouds could sneak into nearby valleys. Mainly the northern Salinas Valley. Fog is not expected to be as dense, but areas of patchy fog by sunrise are still possible. Inalnd mostly clear. Lows mainly in the 50s.

Wednesday: Slightly cooler with more persistent low clouds on the coast and highs mainly in the 60s. Inland areas will remain mostly sunny with highs ranging from the 70s all the way into the low 90s.

Extended: Expect seasonable highs on the coast and warm highs inland for the remainder of the week with coastal low clouds and partial afternoon clearing and mostly sunny skies inland. No rain in sight for the next week or so outside of the occasional coastal drizzle.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 50ºF
HIGH: 66ºF

LOW: 47ºF
HIGH: 76ºF


-The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for May 23rd – 29th calls for the likelihood of ABOVE normal temperatures and ABOVE normal precipitation.
