A trough of low pressure continues to move over the Pacific Northwest, which is gradually bringing daytime highs for the Central Coast down by five to ten degrees, particularly for the interior valleys. These impacts won’t be felt until Wednesday, so Tuesday will be another day of warm temperatures from the upper 80s to mid-90s for the interior valleys. 

Dense fog will be a factor for the coastal valleys on Tuesday ahead of late morning clearing, but once it clears up, temperatures will range from the mid to upper 70s. Marine layer will linger over the coastline for most of the morning, but clearing is likely by later in the afternoon. Once the sunshine starts to peak through in the afternoon, temperatures are expected to be around the mid-60s to low 70s for the beaches. 

Winds will be moderate for most of the afternoon and within a 15-20 mile per hour range, however, wind gusts could reach 30 mph.
