Update at 5:39pm – There are some thunderstorms along the eastern edges of both SLO and SB counties. These are driven by daytime heating and will dissipate over the next few hours. However the New Cuyama area and along the 166 and 33 should be aware of potential localized storms and possible flooding should the storms drift over the roadways.
A weak pressure pattern across the area will produce ample clouds near the coastline. These low clouds will push into the coastal valleys during the night and morning hours but clear in the mornings but at the beaches the clearing will be limited or in some locations not likely.
We will see a microclimate blend of temperatures with the coolest beaches in the upper 50s and lower 60s with locations away from the beaches ranging from the 60s to the lower 70s with inland temps in the 80s into the weekend.
Pretty puffy clouds on a beautiful sunny 80 degree day. #beonksby
Late Sunday night into Tuesday and upper low moves over the area and sprinkles or light showers are possible, some models are suggesting that measurable amounts of rain are possible but at this point I think whatever develops should be light. Regardless the deeper cloud cover will pull down temps inland.
NW winds pick up during the middle of next week to clear out skies and we’ll warm up, especially inland again.
