Weather Forecast

A warm Labor Day but cooler days ahead


With high pressure in control this weekend, the Central Coast received a lot of sunshine and above normal temperatures both on the coast and inland. That trend will continue on Labor Day. This morning, we're waking up to low clouds in and around the Monterey Bay and Salinas Valley. The marine layer is about 1,500ft deep and cloud bases are at 500ft. Some fog has been reported near the coast.

Today: Patchy low clouds and fog along the coast and into the Salinas Valley. Fog also possible in the hills above 500ft but mainly south and east of Monterey. Partly cloudy on the coast this afternoon with low clouds favoring the south and east sides of Monterey Bay. Highs in the upper 60s to upper 70s. Sunny and warm inland this afternoon with highs ranging from the mid 70s to upper 90s. Onshore winds pick up this afternoon.

Tonight: Low clouds thicken a bit and push farther into inland valleys. Coastal lows in the mid 50s to 60º. Inland lows ranging from 50º to 60º.

Tuesday: Low clouds along the coast and into inland valleys in the morning. Fog in the hills. Becoming partly cloudy on the coast in the afternoon and slightly cooler with highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s. Becoming sunny inland in the afternoon and noticeably cooler with highs in the mid 70s to low 90s.

Extended: Persistent troughing along the West Coast will bring those temperatures down, especially for inland areas. Drizzle is likely on the coast early Wednesday as the marine layer expands. Then, aside from some occasional passing high clouds on Wednesday, we'll continue with a normal summer low cloud cycle. Models are hinting at high pressure building back in by mid-week next week.


The Outlook for the Central Coast for September 4th through September 12th, calls for Near or Above Normal Temperatures and Near Normal Rainfall...which is little or none this time of year.
