Tuesday’s temperatures will decrease as clouds increase

Temperatures are falling through midweek, giving everyone a break from the heat. Low temperatures Tuesday morning will be in the 50s. Highs will be in the 60s to 70s on the Central Coast, 70s on the South Coast, and mid-80s inland.

A broad trough will move along the West Coast Monday night through Tuesday. Combined with increasing onshore flow, the marine layer will be deeper, and drizzle may even be possible Tuesday morning. Skies will clear slowly through the day.

Southerly flow will draw moisture from remnants of tropical system Eugene into our area Tuesday night through Wednesday night. Though, it should be noted that storms coming from the southwest are historically difficult to predict in California. Some models are showing moisture continuing into Thursday.

There is some instability associated with this system, and thunderstorms are possible. Currently, our models are showing rain totals below a tenth of an inch, but this can still change. No matter what, expect a cooler, cloudier, and muggier day.

Another upper low moves into the East Pacific Ocean Thursday night to Friday. Temperatures will stay below normal Thursday through Sunday. Night to morning marine layer clouds will stick to coastal areas.
