July 17-21, 2019 A band of high pressure extending through the western U.S. will keep local conditions sunny, clear and warm during the day through this weekend. Slight chance of light drizzle overnight Tuesday otherwise, the next opportunity for some atmospheric mixing will be mid next week when a low pressure trough dips down from the north. Until then expect slightly cooler conditions inland but a bit warmer along the coast due to a little less morning cloud cover. Coastal areas expected to have lows in the 50s and highs in the mid 60s to low 70s. Expect AQI of GOOD in all categories and all areas of Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz Counties. AQI for ozone may slip into MODERATE in Pinnacles as the summer temps build inland.
