Over the last couple days the winds have been roaring around the Central Coast Friday and the weekend looks different. Winds will be about 15 in the afternoon (not the near 30 we've been experiencing). A upper ridge is building back into the state and that will shrink the marine influence, so inland and deeper valley temps will warm but the lower-stronger inversion combined with less wind may allow marine clouds to re-form at the beaches especially in the night and morning hours around the beaches. The large ridge will have a mid-level SW flow associated with it which will push some monsoonal mugginess and clouds back in over the weekend, while it may cause some storms across the Sierra I don't expect much local impact. Temps may dip a few degrees inland Saturday and Sunday (from the 100 readings Friday into the mid or upper 90s thru the weekend) but recover into the 100+ range into early and mid portions of next week. Night and morning low clouds and fog will continue along the coastline which will be the place to beat the long-lasting inland heat.
