A weak low pressure system ushered in by a fast moving jet stream will give the Central Coast a deep marine layer and clouds in the night and morning hours and variable mid-level clouds in the afternoon hours over the next couple days. This will keep highs below normal (in the 50s at some beaches to the mid 60s elsewhere) for all except the interior valleys where lower 70s are still possible.
Despite a fast jet, system over our heads Wednesday is not very vertically developed so any drizzle is not likely to be measurable.
Later Thursday and Friday winds will pick back up, they will be onshore so the temps don't increase much but at least they'll be strong enough to mix out the marine clouds for more sunshine, so it'll look better if nothing else.
Wednesday will see highs in the upper 50s and 60s (warmest inland where near 70 degree temps are possible). West winds around 15 mph in the afternoon.
Wednesday night clouds and marine drizzle with lows in the mid 40s to lower 50s. South winds around 15 mph in the evening.
Thursday looks mostly cloudy with coastal drizzle possible early but becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 50s to mid 60s and still near 70 inland. Northwest winds 15 to 25 mph.
Thursday windy conditions develop. Lows in the 40s. Northwest winds 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph in the evening before diminishing late with the prospects of coastal clouds coming up as the winds slacken.
Friday could see patchy fog in the morning then becoming partly cloudy. Breezy. Highs in the upper 50s and 60s and lower 70s inland.
Friday Night and Saturday: Mostly cloudy with patchy fog in the night and morning otherwise partly cloudy. Breezy. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the upper 50s and 60s near the coast with low to mid 70s inland.
Saturday night will be partly cloudy in the evening then becoming mostly clear. Lows in the mid 40s to lower 50s.
Sunday breezy and generally clear with highs in the upper 50s and 60s. Lows in the mid 40s to mid 50s.
