Weather Forecast

Warm weather continues into the weekend


A more northerly flow worked hard to mix drier air into the marine layer yesterday and as a result, temperatures on the north side of Monterey Bay soared. The same process will be at work today, keeping the marine layer at bay. The stronger northerly winds over the Pacific will also help to mix up some cooler water. Weak wind recently has been responsible for record high sea surface temperatures in the Monterey Bay and those warm water have kept coastal air temperatures relatively warm as well! That influence will be mitigated over the next few days. High pressure then builds in, turning up the heat on inland areas into the weekend.

Today:
A few low clouds this morning on the Monterey Peninsula and into the Salinas Valley, clear elsewhere. Becoming sunny everywhere this afternoon. Coastal highs range from the low 70s to upper 80s with low 80s to upper 90s inland. A few high clouds possible late in the day.

Tonight: Just a few low clouds on the coast overnight, otherwise clear with lows in the 50s to low 60s.

Friday: Patchy fog near the coast early. Sunny and warm with coastal highs in the 70s-80s, 80s to low 100s inland.

Extended: Slightly cooler along the coast this weekend while far inland areas will be a little warmer. High cloudcover spreads through as a pulse of monsoonal moisture works in. A few sprinkles are possible on Saturday. Temperatures remain above normal for this time of year. Into next week, a few low, coastal clouds will return as will another bout of high clouds by mid-week. Temps remain warm.

The outlook for July 29th through August 6th calls for above normal temperatures and near normal precipitation (which is little or none this time of year).
