It felt like summer even in typically cool coastal areas of Monterey County on June 10, and officials are issuing another heat advisory for inland areas today, Tuesday, June 11.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration meteorologist Anna Schneider, temperatures reached a high of 94 degrees in Monterey on Monday for the first time in two-and-a-half years. It had not been over 90 degrees since October of 2017.

The NOAA gauge at Salinas Municipal Airport hit 105, and in King City temperatures reached 107.

Temperatures today are expected to drop a little, to the mid-80s on average.

“It’s still going to be unpleasantly warm, but we won’t have the heat advisory for the coastal region,” Schneider says. “It is not uncommon to see higher temperatures in June, but it is more common to see heat waves around September.”

The weather is expected to cool off significantly starting on Wednesday through the weekend, when the region is expecting larger-than-normal crowds for the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.
