Daytime highs continue to be mild on Monday with marine layer and morning fog playing a factor.

Models indicate that clearing could be a bit stubborn along the coastline by the afternoon hours on Monday. Onshore flow and clouds will keep coastal conditions cooler in the morning, but temperatures are expected to peak around the upper 60s to the low 70s.

The coastal valleys will mostly be in the 70s and 80s Monday with some clearing happening before noon. Winds will be under 10 miles per hour with potential for gusts to reach about 15 mph. Temperatures will warm up for the interior valleys and range from the 80s to the low 90s. Skies will be clear by 8:00 a.m., but winds could play more of a factor with gusts reaching 30 mph by the afternoon.

A lot of talk about the Fourth of July forecast continues. Temperatures on Wednesday will be consistent with Monday’s forecast. Marine layer will hang around the beaches in the morning before afternoon clearing, and then make its return by the evening. Models indicate cloud coverage by 8:00 p.m. Wednesday that will stick around through overnight, which could impact events in Pismo Beach. However, the fog shouldn’t be so thick that it keeps spectators from seeing fireworks.
