Several advisories into Wednesday

Fog rolled into the Central Coast Tuesday evening and will be around into Wednesday morning.

There is a sense fog advisory in effect until 9 am Wednesday.

A dense fog advisory is in effect for the Central Coast and Santa Ynez valley.

Visibility in dense fog will be reduced to one quarter mile or less at times through mid-morning Wednesday.

Dense fog will make travel hazardous on roadways. When driving: reduce speeds and increase following distance. Use low beam headlights and allow extra time to reach your destination.

There is also a high surf advisory remains in effect until 4 pm Wednesday

Surf and timing high surf of 8 to 11 feet with local sets to 13 feet will develop this afternoon. Surf will diminish to below high surf advisory thresholds by late Wednesday afternoon. There will be the possibility of another high surf event Friday morning.

Impacts high surf will create strong and dangerous rip currents in the surf zone as well as waves that can suddenly wash people off of beaches and rocks.

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area producing rip currents and localized beach erosion.

Remember if caught in a rip current swim parallel to shore until you are free of the powerful current. Always swim near a lifeguard.

In terms of other weather, there is a minor chance for sprinkles early Thursday otherwise we'll see skies clear up and warm well into the 70s for the weekend.
