May 17 to May 23, 2018 – A High pressure ridge passing over California to the east is bringing in a slight warming trend which will last into the weekend. A low pressure system or trough will form early next week and quickly pass which may bring some cooling. Weather inland should generally be sunny during this time while the coast may continue to see the daily marine layer. The district AQI monitors are predicted to remain in the GOOD category for Ozone, PM2.5, and PM10 throughout the week.
