Another fantastic day with warm inland temperatures and cool to mild reading along the coast. It's a little breezy with some gusty winds here and there, but no watches or advisories are posted at this time. However, A Heat Advisory is going to be in effect for portions of the Central Coast on Memorial Day Monday! Temperatures for everyone will warm with inland areas really soaring in to the mid and even upper 90's! The only variable or wild card will be the marine layer and patchy fog. Some beaches could see a little fog lingering through the day which will keep things much cooler.
Looking ahead, this is the season of changes and several areas of storminess continue to push inland to our north. These areas of low pressure are quickly followed by building pressure, offshore winds and then, a warm up. That's exactly what's in store starting by Memorial Day Monday. Strong high pressure will build right over the West Coast, shunting the normal movement of cool ocean air. Inland areas will warm significantly from Monday through at least Wednesday and Thursday. We could even see a record or two fall by Wednesday as triple digits possibly are surpassed for our warmest locations. The tricky part will be the immediate coastline and the sea breeze/marine layer. As is very typical with Spring and Summer heat events, a chilly ocean helps to keep the marine layer charged up so to speak. If there is just enough sea breeze, the immediate coast could be much cooler than just a few miles inland. Either way, we do expect very warm/hot conditions and the beaches will likely be very popular regardless if the marine layer shows up or not. Cooler weather with increasing clouds is expected by late in the work week and in to next weekend.
