Hello, and welcome to the nightly forecast. We’re going to head for northern California and Monterey Bay.
At 853PM, PT, Santa Cruz was reporting a temperature of 52 degrees with clear skies. There were clouds over the southern end of Monterey Bay but for the most part, inclement weather has departed the region for the night. The clear skies and onshore flow suggest a threat for some morning fog tomorrow.
An upper level trough lies across the western US, headed towards the Rockies, and will become distended into the Plains. For the purposes of Santa Cruz, this will deflect energy and moisture away from Monterey Bay. A sharp ridge angled towards British Columbia will help keep the city clear of fog, though temperatures will take a while to warm back up.

Others are a little more confident in clearing than I am, but I am pretty sure that Santa Cruz will steer clear of any marine layer. Here is the satellite, showing some clouds in the Monterey Bay area.
