Weather Forecast

Great coastal weather continues, inland areas heat up

The Marine Layer mixed out today and there was lots of sunshine all around the Central Coast. A few low clouds did brush the Monterey Peninsula late this afternoon. Temperatures today ranged from the mid 70s to low 80s at the coast to the mid 80s to mid 90s farther inland. Overnight some low clouds will brush the coast and the south side of the Bay otherwise skies will be mostly clear. Overnight lows will be in the mid 50s to lower 60s.

The upper trough will move inland over the Pacific Northwest Tonight and Thursday. Still some northwest winds along the coast but they will weaken overnight. The upper ridge over the Desert Southwest has already strengthen and will build north and west over the next couple days. With the warmer than normal water along the Coast overnight temperatures will continue to be mild and highs will be well above normal.

The upper high will remain strong and over the Western U.S. through the weekend and into next week. Temperatures will continue above normal and so will the water temperatures along the coast. An area of monsoonal moisture is again forecast to work around the high on Sunday into Monday. A Few clouds and some sprinkles are possible again.

The Outlook for July 29th through August 6th calls for Above Normal Temperatures and Near Normal Precipitation...which is little or none this time of year.
