After a weekend of sun, clouds and light rain, the Central Coast is inching towards more sunshine and warmer daytime highs by the end of the week.

A cold upper low is sitting over the area, which will produce cloudy skies for with a very slight chance of light showers before 8:00 a.m. It’s more likely that the San Gabriel Valley and the mountains in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties will receive this rain.

By the afternoon, daytime highs sill stay between the low to mid-60s and northwesterly winds will range from 15-30 miles per hour. A trof will move in over the area Tuesday, which could bring winds up to advisory level across Santa Barbara County’s south coast.

A high surf advisory will remain in place through Thursday afternoon for San Luis Obispo County and the north coast of Santa Barbara County. The surf will range from 10-13 feet, and by Tuesday and Wednesday, the local sets could reach 15 feet.

The end of the week will bring warmer temperatures from the mid to upper 60s. By the weekend, warmer weather is expected to make its debut, which means most of the area could have temperatures in the low 70s.
