Mild conditions remain through the rest of the week

Low pressure continues to impact the Central Coast as a result of an upper-level trough over Northern California. As a result, deepening marine layer and fog will continue to cover most of the coastal valleys and beaches again Thursday morning. Modeling shows that complete clearing is in the forecast for the coastal areas, but don’t expect it until closer to noon.

Daytime highs for the beaches still staying around the mid-60s to low 70s, which will remain fairly consistent through at least the next week. Coastal valleys will be slightly warmer, ranging from the low to upper 70s. The interior valleys will also have some scattered morning fog, but skies will be clear heading into the 7:00 a.m. hour. Daytime highs for the inland valleys will still be within the low 80s to low 90s range, and those temperatures will stay there through next week.

Another upper-level trough that will make way over the Pacific Northwest will keep conditions fairly consistent for the next week.
