May 24 to May 28, 2017 – As the current high pressure ridge passes, a low pressure trough will be moving in to take its place in the next few days. The cooling temperature trend that we have been experiencing the past few days will continue on towards the end of the week is coming as the ridge passes. Coastal fog is expected to persist up until the weekend. The coming low pressure trough may bring in some slightly warmer weather this weekend. The AQI for all particulate and ozone monitors within the district are predicted to remain in the GOOD category, although ozone for Pinnacles will occasionally show MODERATE.
