A mostly dry cold front is moving southward across the Central Coast. Temperatures across the region are expected to be below normal until Tuesday.
A high pressure system should build behind this cold front and with it strong winds could gust up to 45 mph at more exposed beaches.
Currently, a high wind warning is in place for San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties until Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. The National Weather Service says northwest winds could gust up to 40 mph this afternoon into the evening. The winds should be strongest along the coast.
There's also a high surf advisory in place for west and northwest facing beaches. Surf height could be 9 to 11 feet this afternoon and to 10 to 13 feet tonight into Tuesday. Choppy wave conditions are expected because of the gusty winds.
By mid-week the region should see dry and warmer weather and these conditions should last through Friday.
By this weekend, morning fog and low clouds are expected to return to the beaches and coastal valleys.
