Posted at 5:31 AM, May 23, 2018

Overnight low clouds and fog will hang around through the morning for the Central Coast on Wednesday. After the clearing, skies will be partly cloudy in the afternoon before the clouds make their return Wednesday night.

Daytime highs will still be on the cooler side but close to seasonal averages. The inland valleys will range from the low to upper 70s, but closer to the coast temperatures will be in the mid-60s to low 70s for the coastal valleys and beaches. As for the winds, they will be mild throughout the morning but will pick-up close to 2:00 p.m. and stay within a 15-20 mile per hour range.

Models are backing off on the potential for light rain Thursday through Friday, but with the deepening marine layer, it’s still a possibility. However, rain totals look to be less than .04’’ throughout the Central Coast.
