A ridge of high pressure responsible for the warm weekend weather has shifted, making way for a cold front that is bringing strong northwesterly winds, scattered showers, and cool temperatures.

Today’s daytime highs will stretch into the 50’s in most locations along the Central Coast.

The unstable air mass has the potential to bring thunderstorms, heavy rain, and small hail to some locations.

Overnight temperatures are expected to drop into the mid 30’s in northern San Luis Obispo County, which could allow frost to develop into early Tuesday morning.

Into Tuesday and Wednesday, strong northwesterly winds and below ‘normal’ temperatures are forecast with another chance of light rain showers on Thursday.

  • San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly): 0.20”
