Aug 23-28, 2019 High pressure system continues to dominate our area for the next couple days producing clear blue skies and warm days along the coast but hot temperatures inland. Coastal temperatures will be kept moderate by the onshore flow. These summer temps will continue until early to mid-week next week as the remnants of tropical storm IVO pass by bringing higher humidity and increased cloudiness. Warmer temps expected to return next week. 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 with the summer inland temps and King City and Hollister may see PM10 elevate to MODERATE this weekend due to dry and warm inland temps.
