Strong winds locally into Saturday

Posted: Updated:

A stronger area of high pressure is moving into the area and winds from this high-pressure system are set to whip the Central Coast tonight.

These will be offshore winds, 15-25mph generally, however, some isolated gusts to 50mph are possible across wind-prone areas of SLO County: Morro Bay, Cayucos, Cal Poly and the Cuesta Grade to name a few.

The offshore winds will keep skies mostly clear and temperatures warm.  The only exception will be the interior valleys where some patchy night and morning clouds and fog are possible.

Winds will decrease over the weekend and the MLK Jr. Day weather looks very pleasant.

Mid 70s for coastal valleys thru the weekend with beaches near 70 as well as interior valleys.

A frontal passage Tuesday could produce some drizzle at the coast, but more likely the system stays north of us.  After that, the EURO model likes rain around the 19th with up to .25-.75" of rain.  The GFS doesn't see this system, however, has a larger system hitting the 22nd and again the 27th with potential greater than 1".  These are all long-range outlooks and will likely change but considering the sensitivity in the Montecito area, we'll continue to provide the outlooks.
