Weather Forecast

Hot inland while the coast stays nice

Low clouds cleared back to the coast by mid day. A few high clouds this afternoon, but otherwise there was lots of sunshine around the Central Coast. Highs today ranged from the from the upper 60s and 70s near the coast to the 80s to 107 degrees at the Pinnacles this afternoon. The Low Clouds and patchy fog will spread inland again overnight. The Marine Layer continues at 1200 feet. Overnight Lows will be mostly in the upper 50s to mid 60s. 

The upper ridge will continue over the Desert Southwest and temperatures around the Central Coast will continue above normal. Still with some onshore pressure gradient the low clouds will spread inland night and morning hours.

The upper ridge will weaken some Saturday into Monday. This will allow the Marine Layer to deepen a little and will allow cooler air to spread farther inland. Some low clouds could also linger at the coast Sunday and Monday.

Again the upper ridge will build a little and the weak Upper Trough will weaken and this will compress the Marine Layer again Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures will be up a few degrees. So the typical Summer Weather Pattern Continues with no rainfall in the forecast.

The Outlook for August 6th through August 14th, calls for Above Normal Temperatures and Near Normal Precipitation...which is little or none this time of year.
