We've fallen into a pattern of cool mornings and very warm afternoons, and that will be the trend through the end of the week. High pressure anchored over the Eastern Pacific and offshore flow is contributing to above normal temperatures and clear skies.
Temperatures on Thursday will top out in the 70's for the beaches and 80's for the coastal valleys and interior valleys. Overnight lows will dip into the low 40's for the interior valleys and mid to upper 40's and low 50's for the beaches and coastal valleys.
Onshore winds will return by Sunday, dropping temperatures to the normal range and bringing with it some clouds and the return of the marine layer.
With these dry, windy, and warm conditions comes the increased risk for fire. Vegetation on the Central Coast is historically dry and fire could spread quickly if ignited.
Have a great Thursday!
