This morning the Central Coast saw decent offshore flow at 10-20mph before turning back onshore in the afternoon. Temperatures were very mild as a result. Thursday the offshore push looks 10-20mph and the afternoon return flow looks lighter than today driving 80s for the coastal valley with upper 80s to nearly 90 in the interior valleys of SLO county.
Looks like a pretty short lived warm-up though since marine layer makes a return Thursday evening and night. It’ll push beach and coastal temps down dramatically Friday, into the 60s and 70s. The interior remains warm in the mid 80s.
A low-pressure system Saturday into Sunday will increase the winds and deepen the marine influence. Not only do coastal temps cool but also the interior. NW winds look rather strong 15-30mph on Saturday and Sunday.
Offshore winds and warm temps return Tuesday and Wednesday of next week for 80s at the coast and 90s inland. Could mark the transition into dry and warmer weather common in spring.
