Jan 24 to 29, 2020 For the start of the weekend, expect warmer daytime conditions and clearing with daytime highs in the low-mid 60s and overnight lows in the mid-40s to low-50s. South Monterey County areas can expect daytime highs a couple degrees warmer and overnight lows several degrees cooler - in the high 30s. The next system will drop temperatures again and bring a chance of light rain Saturday through Tuesday followed again by dryer warmer weather as a high pressure ridge starts to move in late next week. San Lorenzo Valley may continue to experience periods of MODERATE PM2.5 AQI in between the rain events. The air quality, for all other areas, is expected to be GOOD in all categories.
