Inland temps step back before jumping to 100 to end the week

Posted at 6:06 PM, Sep 04, 2018

The marine layer is back again tonight with fog and drizzle at the beaches an lows in the 50s for most of the west-facing Central Coast and 60s for southern Santa Barbara County.

Wednesday will see highs in the low 90s in the North County of SLO county and mid to high-70s in the coastal valleys. The beaches will mostly remain in the 60s.  Afternoon winds look to be NW to about 15mph on Wednesday for the coast but the southern Salinas River valley will see some late-day S-SW winds up to 20mph.

High pressure returns to the region on Thursday thru the weekend.  At the beaches and coastal valleys this will mean NW afternoon winds to 25mph.  This will also wipe out the marine clouds and temps will jump into the 70s at the beaches and 80s for most coastal valleys while inland temps run near 100.

Extended forecasts models are not showing any sign of significant rain outside of marine drizzle associated with the marine layer.
