Monterey Amberjacks Forecast Discussion for First Ever Home Opener! (Credit: Meteorologist Jessica Olsen)
DISCUSSION: The Monterey Bay area is finally welcoming its own local professional baseball team after sights had been set for some time. The Monterey Amberjacks are based in Monterey, California’s and are a member of the Pecos League in in independent baseball league, with no affiliation with Major League Baseball (MLB) or Minor League Baseball. With the Amberjacks’ first home game set to begin Saturday, June 3rd, 6:30PM at Sollecito Park, the question for most will be what will the weather bring for the Amberjack’s as they play the Hollywood Stars.
The middle of this week is set with cooler temperatures yet in the seasonal range as an upper level trough moves inland, bringing much of the unsettled weather out of the area as it propagates eastward, with moderate temperatures in the 60’s by the coast. Wednesday, we should expect to see increase sun in most areas as the boundary moves, with this a zonal flow is set to move into the area which will bring more summer like conditions, and the famous stratus clouds to the area. As we move later into the week with the zonal flow a weak high pressure system is set to move into the area which may bring temperatures up a few degrees.
Overall Saturday should see a warm and dry day with plentiful sun. There will be stratus and fog and until the sun burns its off will linger into the area. Temperatures will be mild with the weak high pressure in the area, expect low to mid 60’s. With wind tapering into the week offshore will be the only concern for 10-20knots winds. A nice start to the Amberjack’s season with seasonable weather for their first home game!
