Weather Authority Forecast Summary

Sunnier, warmer

Your Wednesday August 16th Forecast...
A ridge of high pressure builds into the region for the next couple of days, bringing temperatures back to or slightly above normal. It won't stick around forever, though, as a trough will develop along the coast coming out of the weekend. This will once again cool temperatures, both on the coast and inland. A cut-off upper level low will likely develop from the trough which will have impacts on our weather early next week. Depending on the exact position on the low, a lot could change for the local weather, so stay tuned!
 
Thursday: Scattered low clouds for the west side of the Monterey peninsula. Other areas will be mostly sunny with only a few high clouds drifting in from the east. Some high level smoke may also drift in from the Sierra. Expect coastal highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s with upper 70s to upper 90s inland. Breezy for major river valleys in the afternoon and early evening.
 
Overnight: Low clouds expand to fill coastal areas and most adjacent inland valleys. Expect lows in the 50s.
 
Friday: Patchy low clouds remain during the coast through the afternoon. Most other areas will be mostly sunny with a few high clouds possible once again. Expect coastal highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s with 80s to around 100ºF inland. Windy for major river valleys in the afternoon and early evening.
 
Extended: A trough develops over the region this weekend, cooling temperatures both on the coast and inland. There will also be slight uptick in coastal clouds, even more so on Sunday. By early next week, there is some potential for offshore flow, but the position of the upper level low (mentioned above) will make a big difference in the forecast.

 

The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for August 24th-30th calls for the likelihood of above normal temperatures and near normal precipitation, though little to no precipitation typically falls this time of year.

Weather Authority Forecast Summary

Cooling into the weekend, warming out of it

Your Thursday July 27th 2017 Forecast...

A weak upper level trough will dominate our weather into the weekend, cooling temperatures slightly and allowing the marine layer to remain moderately deep. This will keep low clouds in the forecast into the weekend. Eventually, a ridge of high pressure will build in into next week, warming both coast and inland areas and cutting down on clouds.

Overnight: Low clouds thicken for coastal areas and adjacent inland valleys. Patchy fog and drizzle possible. Lows in the 50s on the coast and 50s to low 60s inland.

Saturday: Low clouds and patchy fog for coastal areas and the Salinas Valley in the morning, then becoming mostly sunny. Scattered low clouds will linger on the south/east sides of the bay and along the exposed coast during the afternoon but other areas will see full sunshine. Expect coastal highs in the low 60s to mid 70s with mid 70s to low 100s inland. Breezy for the Salinas Valley in the afternoon and early evening.

Extended: Starting Sunday, high pressure will build in for most of next week, heating up inland areas and even the coast will see mostly sunny, warm conditions. Some monsoonal moisture potentially enhanced by one of the tropical cyclones out in the East Pacific may result in some high clouds by mid-week. At least one computer model is generating some showers/t-storms on Thursday, so that will have to be watched.

The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for August 4th-10th calls for the likelihood of above normal temperatures and near normal precipitation, though little to no precipitation typically falls this time of year.

Local Forecast

Weather Authority Forecast Summary

Typical June Gloom

High pressure remains in control, though temperatures will remain seasonable through mid-week. Slight warming expected by the end of the week as the ridge strengthens. Flow will remain onshore which will keep the daily cycle of low clouds and seasonable temperatures in the forecast for the coast.
 

Wednesday: Low clouds will be on the decrease by mid-morning, but it is likely some will linger on the south/east sides of Monterey Bay throughout the day with highs in the low to mid 60s. Elsewhere, expect mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s on the coast and mid 70s to upper 90s for inland areas. Windy in the Salinas Valley during the afternoon and early evening.

Tonight: Low clouds expand throughout coastal areas and adjacent valleys. Some fog in the hills and the inland valleys. Patchy drizzle near the coast. Expect coastal lows in the low to mid 50s with upper 40s to mid 50s for inland areas.

Thursday: Patchy low clouds on the south/east sides of Monterey Bay but mostly sunny elsewhere. Coastal highs in the 60s to mid 70s with upper 70s to around 100ºF inland. Breezy at times.

Extended: Seasonable weather will continue on the coast with the daily cycle of low clouds through the weekend. Inland temperatures will increase through Friday where highs will be about 5 degrees above normal, then cool through Monday with highs about 5 degrees below normal. Besides a few low clouds in the valleys in the morning, inland areas will remain sunny.

The outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for July 5th-11th calls for the likelihood of above normal temperatures and near normal precipitation, though little to no precipitation typically falls this time of year.

 

El Niño/La Niña STATUS: Neutral
