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.
Mornings will continue to be overcast, with the sun making it’s way to the coastal areas by the afternoon. Coastal areas may see some lingering clouds. The south is looking at temperatures in the 70’s and the northern areas are going to be getting temperatures ranging in the upper 70’s and 80’s. A high pressure system builds Wednesday bringing a warming trend through the end of the week. The warming trend will bring a moderate onshore flow. Friday and Saturday will likely be the warmest days. Another cooling trend will follow early next week with a low pressure system. Expect clouds and fog to likely continue early next week.
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.
A weak upper low will move East of the Central Coast Sunday. A couple of weak upper troughs will affect our area Monday through early Wednesday. This will maintain generally cool conditions, with night through morning clouds and fog in coastal and valley areas. Winds will range from 10 to 20 mph, with higher gusts possible. High pressure and offshore flow will kick up bringing a gradual warming trend for the middle and end of the week. Temperatures will be above normal for the interiors, seeing 90s in some areas. Beach and coastal areas will see seasonal weather with this system.
The holiday weekend on the Central Coast will be cool with a cloudy weather pattern through Tuesday. Morning clouds will be consistent with a low pressure system and a trough will deepen the marine layer. A high pressure system will build through the middle of the week bringing inland areas into higher temperatures, some in the 80’s, coastal areas on the 7-day are looking more into the 60’s and 70’s for late week.
