Looking cold overnight with numerous frost and freeze alerts

Posted at 4:36 PM, Nov 09, 2020

The Central Coast is in the wake of a winter-style cold trough and now that skies have clear and the wind has slowed the dry air and long night will mean that frost and freeze issues take center stage.

The inland valleys have a number of warnings from Freeze Warnings in the Santa Ynez valley to a hard freeze warning in the southern Salinas Valley. Even the Central Coast has a frost advisory. The only difference between all of them is the severity of the cold.

Wednesday morning doesn't look as cold at the coast but more freezing temps inland are likely.
In terms of high temps 60s for most the next couple days.

Another cold front pushes across the area late Wednesday into Thursday, that one looks dry but it will reinforce cool temperatures. Another front Thursday into Friday looks like it could spark a few showers here and there but again more than rain it just looks like a system that will keep cooler than average air over the area.

After that system departs milder air looks to return Sunday into Monday and some 70s are possible in the forecast. However some models are showing a large trough arriving Tuesday next week for more showers.
