Feb 20-25, 2020 A low pressure system from the Pacific will pass to the south of us and bring in steadily warming conditions with daytime temperatures reaching the mid-high 70s, until this weekend with rainfall throughout Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito on Saturday morning. Once the system passes, cooler drier conditions will return, and Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties will again experience temperatures mid-high 60s and overnight lows in the mid-high 40s. The air quality is expected to be GOOD in all categories with some potential PM2.5 MODERATE days in parts of the San Lorenzo Valley during the early part of next week.
