Forecast discussion for March 27 to April 1: The high pressure system that brought near record warmth to the Central Coast is gradually nudged eastward by a series of weak disturbances pushing in from the west. This will produce a gradual cool down over the area, particularly along the coast where increased onshore flow will increase marine low clouds and fog along the coastal plain and valleys. This progressive and cooler pattern should prevent air pollution levels from building up, resulting in GOOD air quality over the region.
