A ridge of high pressure over the state will continue to bring warmer temperatures to the Central Coast Thursday.
Daytime highs will be slightly above average and from the upper 70s to low 80s for the interior valleys. The coastal valleys will still be close to the mid-70s and the beaches will stay right around the mid to upper 60s.
Weather models are indicating any fog and marine layer don’t appear to be a factor in the forecast for Thursday, so expect mostly clear skies. Winds, however, are expected to increase by the afternoon and range from 15-20 miles per hour.
Looking ahead to the weekend, there’s another chance for light rain. Mostly cloudy conditions are in the forecast for Sunday with a slight chance of rain after 11:00 a.m. The Central Coast could also wake up to rain Monday morning but those conditions will taper off by noon.
