Winds will drive forecast changes

Posted: Updated:

High pressure is starting to nose into the region and with that transition, NW winds are cranking up.  The key spot for concern overnight into tomorrow is the SB County mountains where winds 20-30 with gusts near 50mph locally are possible into the morning.

For the Central Coast the breeze of this afternoon will wane a bit after sunset, however, will return strongly out of the NW tomorrow at 15-25mph with gusts to 30mph.  Thursday is the transition day in the forecast.

Friday and Saturday morning offshore winds will be present and push temps into the upper 70s and 80s.  This shot of warmer air doesn't last too long, we'll get windy again out of the NW Sunday through Tuesday and some of those winds could be stronger than 40mph at the coast in the afternoon.  When winds calm at night we'll see spring-typical low clouds and fog at the coast in the night and morning hours.

There are model hints of rain in early May but that is a way out, stay tuned.
