Thursday is a transitional day as daytime highs are expected to warm up to the low 70s for much of the coastal valleys and beaches. The interior valleys aren’t too far behind and will range from the mid to upper 60s.

Thursday will also have sunny skies across the board before increasing cloud cover early Friday. Ten to 20 MILE PER HOUR northeasterly winds are expected to continue through Thursday morning before calming down in the early afternoon hours.

A weak cold front passing over the area Friday could still bring light scattered rain Friday morning to areas along the North Coast and the interior valleys in San Luis Obispo County. Saturday looks to be fairly clear ahead of another cold front headed to the Central Coast Sunday. Cloudy conditions are expected Sunday, followed by rain in the overnight hours into Monday. Weather models are showing this system will be on the lighter side with rainfall totals close to 0.25”-0.5”.
