An upper level low has been creating some excitement in the region. While the low is offshore, the mid-level southerly flow around it has made the atmosphere very unstable to our east with Kern County getting severe weather Sunday and lightning was seen in SLO County. There will be more activity in Eastern Kern again later today but locally we are too far from the excitement. Instead you could almost say it is the opposite, more Fogust rather than August like weather can be expected much of the week.
It will continue to be warm across the interior (low-90s) but cool near the coast (60s at beaches and 70s in coastal valleys) with a stubborn coastal marine layer through Wednesday. The upper low will begin to lift northeast on Thursday but will be replaced by another trough of low pressure moving in from the northwest. The result will be continued near or slightly below normal temperatures and night through morning low clouds along the coast.
The extended forecast is for SW flow to get going again in the upper atmosphere which keeps things around here really quiet.
