Weather Forecast

Warming into the weekend


High pressure begins to build in with a northwest flow. This will warm and dry our area into the weekend.

Thursday: Decreasing low clouds for coastal areas. However, some low cloudcover may remain around the south and east sides of Monterey Bay. Also, some clouds may buildup over the inland mountains in the afternoon. Other areas will become mostly sunny. Temperatures will be seasonable with 60s to low 70s on the coast and low 70s to mid 80s inland. Windy for inland valleys in the afternoon.

Overnight: Increasing low clouds near the coast and moving into some inland valleys. Expect coastal lows in the upper 40s to low 50s with 40s inland. Windy at times for inland valleys.

Friday: A few low clouds near the coast early, then sunny. Warmer with coastal highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s. Breezy inland with highs in the 80s to around 90ºF.

Extended: A more northerly flow will bring warmer, dry air into the region through Saturday at least. Saturday should be the warmest day on the coast with highs in the mid 60s to upper 70s. Strengthening onshore flow will cool the coast a bit Sunday and Monday and could reintroduce some low clouds while inland areas stay warm and sunny with highs in the 80s.


The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for June 2nd-8th calls for ABOVE normal temperatures and near normal precipitation.
