No huge changes to the “June Gloom” pattern for the Central Coast. Clouds at the coast were stubborn today as expected and no huge changes Wednesday.

Onshore flow will bring in the night and morning marine clouds to the coastal valleys, the clearing at beaches will only be partial and some may not clear. Along with the clouds are patches of mist and drizzle at times.

Beaches will generally see highs in the 60s this week with coastal valleys in the 70s, inland valleys in the mid-80s.

Winds will be light in the morning hours and picking up out of the west in the afternoon.  At the coast the afternoon winds should be near 15mph however inland afternoon SW winds could exceed 20mph.

An upper level trough pushes thru The West as we go into Thursday and Friday and inland highs will tumble into the upper 70s before warming again Saturday and Sunday. This feature may not be all that noticeable at the coast where the night and morning cloud pattern continues.

This pattern looks baked in this week and likely next week as well.

Astronomical summer begins Friday morning with the Solstice (longest day) however meteorological summer began June 1st (when typical summer weather like thunderstorms or intense heat start taking place)
