Significant cooling trend kicks off today, continues through midweek

Good morning, Central Coast and happy Monday!

To kick off the week we have heat continuing to linger today but there is great news, interior valley temps are set to drop significantly.

Highs today are still in the triple digits in the interior valleys, continue to practice common sense precautions and stay hydrated. By the beaches and within coastal valleys temps are significantly cooler and for the most part are close to seasonal normal.

Even though temps are not dropping yet the cooling trend is starting today as a large area of monsoon moisture moves into the desert southwest. This will cut highs significantly and bring very much needed relief to the parched areas in Arizona and SoCal. For us this will NOT bring us any rain chances but it will increase cloud cover and will make for a much cooler mid week.

Wednesday is expected to be the coolest day of the week with some interior valleys topping off in the upper 80s. The warming restarts to end the week and more triple digits move in for the weekend.

Have a great day Central Coast!
