Pockets of fog and low clouds will persist on Wednesday morning with the possibility of mist and drizzle. Clearing will happen earlier in the morning starting Wednesday, but patchy fog could hang around the coastline until about 10:00 a.m. 

Due to the earlier clearing, daytime highs are starting to warm up by a few degrees. Temperatures for the inland valleys will range from the low to upper 80s and the coastal valleys will be within the low to upper 70s. The beaches are still on the cooler side and staying around the mid-60s to low 70s on Wednesday with mostly clear skies by 11:00 a.m.

Twenty to 30 mile per hour northwesterly winds are in the forecast for the beaches, which will increase heading into the latter half of the week. 

High pressure will start to build over the Central Coast on Friday, which will continue the streak of warming, but the impacts will mostly be felt in the interior valleys where daytime highs are going to reach the low 90s. Looking ahead, Labor Day Weekend will be pleasant with temperatures right around seasonal averages.
