Overnight lows are cooling down even more over the next few days. Temperatures are going to range from the low 30s to the low 40s at least through the 6 o’clock hour Thursday morning. A freeze watch will go into effect for the interior valleys Thursday night and remain in place through Sunday morning. Through the weekend, overnight temperatures could get close to 30 degrees, which means plants, outdoor plants and livestock could be affected.
South of the Central Coast, Ventura and Los Angeles Counties are under multiple watches through Friday. As high winds and temperatures increase, a fire weather watch and high wind watch will remain in place through Friday night.
Back on the Central Coast, daytime highs for the beaches will get close to the mid-70s on Thursday. The coastal valleys will range from the mid-70s to low 80s, while the interior valleys will be slightly cooler and have a much wider range from the low to upper 70s. Winds will stay within 15-25 miles per hour through the weekend, and be strongest in the morning and evening hours, which will push marine layer and clouds off the coast and keep skies clear.
