Weather Forecast

Seasonable Sunday


High pressure slowly builds in, as a result temperatures will head steadily up, especially for inland areas. Even coastal areas may see a few degrees warming by midweek.

Sunday: Patchy low clouds/fog early, then becoming mostly sunny with a few low clouds near the coast. A few high clouds will pass through and a few cumulus clouds will build up over the higher terrain of southern San Benito and southeastern Monterey Counties. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon. Slightly deeper onshore flow will cool coastal areas a few degrees with highs in the upper 50s to upper 60s. Inland areas remain in the 70s to around 90ºF.

Monday (Memorial Day): A few low clouds possible early, then becoming sunny. A few degrees warmer on the coast with highs in the upper 50s to around 70ºF. Warm inland with highs in the upper 70s to low 90s.

Extended: High pressure strengthens through midweek, sending inland temperatures soaring into the 90s. Light onshore flow at the coast will keep most areas seasonable, though 70s won't be out of the question especially by Thursday and Friday. An upper level low moving in from the west may bring some showers/thunderstorms to the inland mountains next weekend... and certainly an increase in clouds.

The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for June 4th-10th calls for ABOVE normal temperatures and near normal precipitation.

El Niño/La Niña STATUS: Weak El Niño
