Monday turned out to be a warm and breezy day, but yet again there is another major shift in the weather pattern.

Marine layer and fog will be a factor for the beaches and coastal valleys on Tuesday. Most of the coastal valleys will clear up by the afternoon, but the beaches could be a bit more stubborn to clear and could stay socked in most of the day.

Daytime highs for the beaches will stay right around the mid-60s and the coastal valleys will range from the upper 60s and low 70s. For those in the interior valleys, not much is changing Tuesday temperature-wise. Daytime highs will be right around the mid-70s to the low 80s.

A cold front is making its way toward the Central Coast, which means a 20-30% chance of rain on Wednesday and off and on rain early Thursday morning through the evening.

This system could actually pack a punch if it doesn’t taper off before Thursday. The beaches and coastal valleys could receive 0.25’’-0.50’’ of rain and the mountains could get anywhere from 1’’-2’’ of rain. Winds will also be a factor as the cold front makes its way over the area and as its leaving. Gusts could range from 30-40 miles per hour by Wednesday night, so it’s likely the National Weather Service could be issuing a wind advisory.
