Weather Forecast

Cooler temperatures this week

Marine Layer deepened today and cool air spread well inland. Low clouds persisted much of the day around the Bay, but cleared inland. They are spreading back inland again tonight. Highs today ranged from the mid 60s to mid 70s near the coast to the to the 80s to the 90s farther inland. Low clouds will again spread inland with the Marine layer deepening a little more which means some drizzle near the coast. Overnight lows will be in the 50s.

The upper ridge has moved east and an upper trough is moving into the pacific northwest. This trough will move east, but leave a weak trough just offshore Northern and Central California. This trough will continue Wednesday and Thursday, but weaken Friday into the Weekend, but still remain just offshore. Temperatures will continue at or a little below normal, but warm a few degrees Saturday and Sunday.

Another weather system moves into the Pacific Northwest on Monday and will deepen the trough some, but then high pressure builds in for warmer temperatures Tuesday into Friday. Still dry and no major weather systems are forecast to affect the Central Coast.

The Outlook for the Central Coast for September 8th through September 16th calls for Above Normal Temperatures and Near Normal Precipitation...which is little or none this time of year.
