Cold morning temperatures and mild daytime highs Thursday

Posted at 5:13 AM, Nov 15, 2018

Fire weather is slowly taking a backseat in both Northern and Southern California as winds calm down and Red Flag Warnings expire. Still, warm and dry conditions remain at least through Friday.

Back on the Central Coast, overnight temperatures are still at freezing levels for the interior valleys. There isn’t a freeze warning or watch in place, but take note that these conditions can be harmful to any outdoor pets, livestock, and plants.

Daytime highs will be mild again Thursday. Temperatures along the coast are starting to cool slightly and go back to the upper 60s to mid-70s. The coastal valleys will still have the warmest temperatures in the area, staying around the mid-70s to low 80s and the interior valleys will sit just below that in the mid-70s.

Thursday will have clear skies but expect different conditions on Friday as some cloud cover returns. By the weekend, temperatures are going to cool by five to ten degrees and marine layer and fog will linger throughout the morning.

A rain system continues to look promising over Thanksgiving weekend. Modeling is suggesting we could see some precipitation by next Wednesday with continued scattered showers through the end of the holiday weekend.
