Cool week ahead

Night through morning clouds, fog and drizzle can be expected for the coast and coastal valleys late Sunday night into the early portions of Monday morning. This is due to an upper low that was off the California coastline and moving north toward the Central Coast. The latest satellite imagery shows a cloud layer at the coast which should burn off by early afternoon. A southern surge of low level winds will keep low clouds socked in at beaches along the Central Coast and Santa Barbara South Coast. The inland hot temperature that have lingered should drop thanks to the cutoff low that has been sitting just off the southern California coastline for the last several days. Expect cooling through Monday and inland temps to return to near normal for this time of year. This system will move over the Central Coast, resulting in cooler temperatures, up to a 15 degree drop in some regions. Then a ridge of high pressure moves in Tuesday which will reduce the depth of the marine layer, resulting in near normal temperatures for the coast and valleys. Low clouds and fog will still be present at the beach and coastal valleys but should burn off quicker at the beach. But the inversion will keep some clouds lingering at the beach. Another low pressure system will roll in on Wednesday, bringing the return of night and morning low clouds, patchy drizzle and cooler weather. Temperatures will be near normal next week and slightly cooler temperatures will be seen late next week for the inland regions.
