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.

Low clouds, fog, cooler temps and some wind for Memorial day

Clouds return with occasional drizzle

by Dave Hovde, KSBY Meteorologist

Marine stratus will return for most of the Central Coast later this evening. There is an upper-level low pressure system that will produce increasing clouds and areas of mist and drizzle tonight thru Friday morning. There is also a chance of rain showers and thunderstorms in the higher elevations of the Central Coast, but especially in the Sierra Nevada.

An upper level high pressure ridge should start to build over the Central Coast Memorial Day weekend for generally fair and warmer weather (though temperatures will actually be near seasonal norms. Tuesday and Wednesday some weak low pressure develops for more marine clouds and temps look to drop a degree or two.
