Cooler temps inland into the weekend then warming again

Not much new to talk about with the weather pattern. The forecast has held up nicely over the last several days.

There is an upper low off the Pac NW that is drifting east. It is already starting to flatten the ridge of high pressure over the 4-corners region. This will allow more onshore flow and deeper marine influence.

Night and morning low clouds near the coast will continue with some inland clouds as well (like we saw this morning in the southern Salinas River Valley). Clouds will retreat back to the beaches where they will linger near shore.

Beaches will continue along in the 60s with coastal valleys in the low to mid 70s with inland valleys dropping into the lower 90s.

This forecast is expected the next several days. Sunday the upper level ridge starts to recover and inland temps warm. By Monday temps will be in the upper 90s inland again. Coastal temps will also come up a few degrees but the warming will be muted due to marine influence.

Note: Friday and Saturday could be windy in the SB county mountains and Southcoast with sundowners. Also looks like the pattern keeps monsoonal moisture out of the area.
