The Central Coast is waking up to morning fog and drizzle. While the drizzle will clear up, the fog and marine layer will likely stick around for most of the day at the beaches.

An upper-level trough over the area in combination with onshore flow could make it difficult for the sun to peek through in the afternoon. However, moving towards the coastal and inland valleys, there will be partly cloudy skies.

Daytime highs won’t vary as much as they did on Tuesday. The inland valleys will range from the upper 60s to low 70s, and the coastal valleys won’t be too far behind and mostly in the mid to upper 60s. The beaches will be the coolest areas on Wednesday and mostly in the low to mid-60s.

Winds are looking to be fairly mild Wednesday morning but will increase by the afternoon. Expect them to be within a 10-20 mile per hour range with potential for gusts to reach 25 miles per hour, creating some gusty conditions particularly for the interior portions of the Central Coast.
