Weather Forecast

Cooler, wetter? weather on the way...

Clear skies today sent temperatures up again. with little fog at the coast it was one of those "Chamber of Commerce Days" around the Central Coast. Lots of sunshine with highs were in the 70s to low 80s near the coast to the mid 80s and 90s well inland. Mostly clear skies overnight with some patchy coastal clouds by early morning. Overnight lows will be mostly in the 50s. 

A weather system about about 600 miles west of the Central Coast will turn northeast on Wednesday. The upper trough associated with this system will move slowly east and be just offshore California on Wednesday evening. The cold front will move through the Central Coast Thursday morning and could bring a few showers along the coast and in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The storm system will move inland on Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night. Still clouds will continue over the area and it will be until Thursday that the upper trough moves inland. Skies begin to clear on Thursday and an upper ridge begins to build over the Eastern Pacific on Friday into the Weekend.

An upper low cuts off over Central And Southern California into the Weekend. It appears it will be south of us and we could see some warming at the coast with some easterly winds. The upper low will move inland on Monday and then a warming trend into the middle of next week.

The Outlook for the Central Coast for September 22nd through September 30th calls for Above Normal Temperatures and Near Normal Precipitation...which is little or none this time of year.
