Weather will be changing quickly Wednesday afternoon into Thursday as a cold front pushes across the Central Coast ushering dramatically cooler lows and highs into the weekend.
The front which passes Wednesday afternoon or evening should be dry, but it'll make the skies cloud over. Winds will shift from a SW wind earlier in the day to a more NW direction. Winds will pick up strength Wednesday evening and by Thursday afternoon could be 30mph or stronger at the coast.
There is not much moisture for the system to work with however increasing cold air aloft will make the atmosphere unstable Thursday with some light scattered showers possible. If there is much measurable rainfall it should be in the hundredths of an inch.
Highs will still be decent Wednesday topping in the 60s. However Thursday into the weekend highs will only be in the 50s with north county not making it out of the 40s on Friday and Saturday for high temps.
The lows will be brisk...especially after the front has passed. Thursday through Saturday the lows near the coast will be in the lower 30s and the interior valleys will see lows over that time frame in the lower to middle 20s.
Winds will shift more NE later Saturday and will keep skies clear, temps will moderate slowly.
So, enjoy Wednesday, it'll be the warmest day in a while.
