High pressure is building and it will create strong offshore winds tonight into Saturday morning. These winds will decrease Saturday afternoon, but will still be locally gusty Saturday night into Sunday morning.

These offshore winds will produce mostly clear skies, low relative humidity levels and warmer temperatures. Highs in the 70s to mid 80s for most of the Central Coast this weekend and some scattered 90s are possible.

The offshore winds will decrease later on Sunday night, and will shift out of the northwest by Monday. Marine layer clouds along with fog and mist should return to beaches and near coastal valleys.

Very strong NW winds will crank up at the coast Tuesday into Wednesday morning, 20-40mph.

Wednesday afternoon into Thursday and area of low pressure spins up to the south and east and will give us a chance at showers. The majority of the rain is forecast to remain in Southern California. Local rain amounts look very light, some places will not get rain from this system.

Late next week, right around Thanksgiving we could see more showers in a cool pattern.
