Weather Forecast

The slow warming trend continues


High pressure is the main fixture in our weather into Saturday, though onshore flow will keep a few low clouds and cooler temperatures in the coastal forecast.

Friday: Low clouds near the coast in the morning, then becoming mostly sunny. The exception being the southern part of Monterey Bay which will stay mostly cloudy. Slightly warmer on the coast with highs in the low 60s to low 70s. Warmer inland as well with widespread 70s and 80s. A few locations in southern Monterey County will top out in the low to mid 90s. Breezy for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Overnight: Low clouds along the coast and adjacent valleys. Patchy fog and drizzle possible. Coastal lows in the upper 40s to low 50s with mid 40s to low 50s inland.

Saturday: Low clouds and fog near the coast in the morning with some patchy fog for inland valleys. Becoming mostly sunny in the afternoon. Slightly warmer on the coast with highs in the low 60s to mid 70s. Warmer inland as well with widespread 70s and 80s. A few locations in southern Monterey County will top out in the low to mid 90s.

Extended: A weak storm system passes by late Sunday bringing the chance for some light rain showers in the northern portion of our viewing area. The probability is rather low, but it is possible. Drizzle will also be possible as low clouds thicken up near the coast. Expect slightly cooler conditions early next week then breezy days on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The outlook for June 5th-11th calls for above normal temperatures and near normal precipitation.
