Hot weekend ahead for the Central Coast

By: Amanda Starrantino, KSBY Weather Reporter

The low pressure system hitting the Central Coast for the past few days over Memorial Day Weekend has weakened, and a high pressure system is building. This system will bring a warming trend through the weekend, shrinking the heavy marine layer we have been seeing in the morning and early afternoon hours. The high pressure will give the area a hot weekend, Friday and Saturday being the most warm days before the trough weakens and a ridge forms bringing back a low pressure system. The coastal areas will be getting temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s for highs, the inland areas however will have temperatures reaching 90 plus degrees. Come early next weekend, a low pressure system will return, lowering temperatures, increasing the marine layer, and bring those low clouds back to the coast before a quick turn around with another warm up looking like mid next week due to another trough making it’s way in.

Slightly below normal temps continue for a few days, then a warming trend

By RaeAnn Christensen, KSBY Forecaster

Persistent low pressure over the Western United States will keep temperatures slightly below normal for the Central Coast through the middle of the week. We will also see many night through morning clouds, and fog for the coastal areas. High pressure will build over California starting Wednesday through the weekend bringing a warming trend. This will bring coastal areas back to seasonal temperatures, but inland areas will see well above normal temperatures.
