Nov 13 – Nov 16, 2019 Temperatures expected to cool by a few degrees as we transition from a high pressure system to a brief low pressure trough and quick cut off low back to another high pressure system by Saturday. The trough and cut off low will move in Wednesday and move out Friday producing temperatures in the low to high 50s Wednesday and Thursday with a chance of light drizzle Thursday morning in the mountain areas of Santa Cruz and Big Sur. Westerly onshore and Northerly winds also return during this midweek trough. High pressure will move back on Saturday increasing the temperatures for the weekend. The days should be generally sunny with a possible marine layer hanging just off the coast in the morning. Ozone is expected to remain GOOD throughout the week. PM10 may reach MODERATE in Hollister and King City as the onshore flow is expected to slightly increase midweek. PM2.5 is expected to remain GOOD throughout this time however, some areas in San Lorenzo Valley may slip into MODERATE overnight due to wood burning device use.
