All this week, a large area of high pressure will be located off the California coastline. This high will produce a west to northwest flow off the Pacific Ocean. In this setup, it is common for the Monterey Peninsula to experience fog and low clouds overnight due to the marine layer - moist air off the ocean spreads inland, and as temperatures cool overnight, fog can form. This past weekend at the IMSA event, fog and low clouds formed each morning, and usually cleared out between 10 am and noon. I expect a similar pattern this weekend. Some of the early morning sessions may be impacted due to low visibility. Once the clouds and fog lift, sunny skies will prevail. Thanks to the cool air off the ocean, temperatures will only reach to around 70 degrees in the afternoons.
