Posted at 4:27 AM, Jan 02, 2019

Temperatures are hovering in the low 20s and 30s across the Central Coast Wednesday morning and daytime highs will be relatively cool.

Inland areas of northern San Luis Obispo County are not under any sort of freeze or frost advisory but residents should take precautions because of the extremely cold temperatures.

The coast of SLO County is under a freeze watch through 9 a.m. with temps dipping to 27-32 degrees.

The greater Santa Maria Valley area is under a hard freeze warning through 9 a.m. Temperatures will drop between 25-31 degrees.

The south coast of Santa Barbara County has a frost advisory in place until 9 a.m. for temperature ranging from 32-35 degrees.

Daytime highs Wednesday inland will be in the 50s, coastal valleys and beaches should see low 60s with plenty of sunshine across the region.

Weak ridging will keep the area dry through Friday and gradually warm temperatures back into the mid-60s.

The ridge breaks down Friday and a strong area of low pressure will arrive Saturday into early Sunday, bringing gusty south winds and heavy rain. The system is expected to produce 1-2 inches of rain.

We’re tracking another rain system anticipated to arrive next week.
